I thought it was either 3G or 4G/LTE...there's no in between. My experience is that some months I get hit with a throttle at 5 gigs and my DL/UL speed goes way down and other months I can go past and not get throttled at all.

It make no difference whether you're on 3G or 4G... the bandwidth limit applies to the entire phone's usage.

Also LTE = 4G.

Maybe he's referring to HSPA+ as being 4G.

Actually it is. Google it. 4G is supposed to be LTE but some networks call their HSPA+ network 4G when it's really a suped up 3G.

So, 4G=LTE

I seen threads in other forums that discuss changing carrier settings so you'll only get 3G(Hspa+) only. This supposedly bypasses the throttling that's imposed on LTE.

So have you come to the realization that LTE = 4G yet? Or have you learned nothing?

From the first few paragraphs on Wikipedia, you seem to both be wrong.

What Myiphone7 is referring to is HSPA+, not 4G but LTE technically isn't 4G either but they agreed to call it 4G due to "marketing pressure and significant advancement that WIMAX, HSPA+ and LTE bring to the original 3G technologies" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LTE_(telecommunication)

Can we get back on topic now?
Sadly I don't live in the USA so I can't help you out Myiphone7

Really?

Quote:
LTE an initialism of Long Term Evolution, marketed as 4G LTE, is a standard for wireless communication of high-speed data for mobile phones and data terminals. It is based on the GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA network technologies, increasing the capacity and speed using a different radio interface together with core network improvements. [...] The LTE specification provides downlink peak rates of 300 Mbit/s, uplink peak rates of 75 Mbit/s and QoS provisions permitting a transfer latency of less than 5 ms in the radio access network.

Does anyone actually know whether or not you can use 4G instead of LTE when they throttle LTE...
