"Lol good point. But lets not forget about AT&T.... They are calling their 7.2 mbps HSPA+ a "4g" network, and on top of that they started doing it right before they plan to launch LTE. What are they going to tell their customers that are upgrading today to "4g phones" in 6-8 months when they launch LTE and those 4g phones that they just bought are completely obsolete?"

It's irrelevant, HSPA+ has already been rolled out in nearly 100% of its markets, LTE will take at least two years to become as widespread....

The real issue is AT&T and Verizon hyping LTE when neither carrier plans for LTE to be at all common before 2013 at the earliest. Much like Sprint with its WiMax network, making big claims about a technology that barely exists anywhere is likely to come back to bite them.
