Another reason why “4G” is meaningless to consumers

March 7th, 2012

iOS 5.1 magically adds 4G to your AT&T iPhone | iMore.

All they’ve done, as has been done for some Android phones, is change the text “3G” to “4G” even though it still runs only on the older technology.

Update: It may be indicating 4G for the AT&T HSDPA+ connections only rather than the 3G connections. HSDPA+ is sort of a 3.5G technology that T-Mobile began using a couple of years ago.

However, look what AT&T said about T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 4G network just a few months ago – it’s just HSPA+, not real 4G.
