Top message: TMO 4G by texmarvin
Replying to: Re: TMO 4G by texmarvin
For example, at one time LTE wasn't considered 4G (technically) until the speeds were to 100 Mbps. However, the industry has accepted current LTE speeds to be 4G. You will not rarely hear anyone say that Verizon's LTE isn't 4G (and compare that to current WIMAX, which is a lot slower, even at times slower than HSPA+ 42). So whether rightly or wrongly, it has been decided that HSPA+ can be called 4G because it has significant increases in speed to 3G. If that standard has been updated to accept this, then why can't people accept it too?
I feel that in many cases (not in all), people slight HSPA + because they have an agenda to promote one carrier and down another. But T-Mobile and ATT have the legal right to promote HSPA+ as 4G for a reason...
