So it’s 4G now

AT&T has relabeled their existing 3G data network as a 4G network. By definition, 4G network standards like LTE (Long Term Evolution) run at speeds of 1 Gbit/s for low-mobility connections like cellphones.

AT&T claims:

“The whole industry has come to equate more speed with 4G,” said Ralph de la Vega, chief executive of AT&T’s wireless unit. He says consumers generally won’t notice the difference in speed between AT&T’s HSPA-plus and upcoming LTE networks, so it makes sense to call both 4G.

John Donovan, AT&T’s chief technology officer, said speeds on HSPA-plus and LTE phones will feel similar now, but users will start to notice a difference in the two technologies once richer applications become available. [Source: Motherboard]
