As some of you know, the latest iPhone update caves into AT&T’s request to have their HSPA+ connections labeled at 4G.
AT&T: I’ve used 4G. I’ve spent lots of time with it. You sir, are not 4G.
When I use my iPhone for data and I’m using AT&T’s “4G” network, it is note terrible. It’s definitely a fast 3G. I get typically 3 to 5 Mb/sec.
However, when I use my LTE hotspot with it, I get 15 to 20 MB/sec. THAT, to me, is 4G. It is a huge experience difference too.
