3GB data cap only on LTE?

    I'm on the 3GB LTE Basic data plan but I have noticed that only traffic made on the LTE network is being counted toward my 3GB allotment.

    My iPhone cellular usage shows 350MB thus far but my AT&T data usage only shows 150MB.

    There have been plenty of times where signal was spotty and I was on "4G" only and not LTE. Could it be that data over the "4G" network remains unlimited while only LTE is capped at 3GB?

    The way I see it only traffic on the LTE network is being counted.

    What do you think?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    They count all data used. GPRS,2G, 3G and LTE.
    Some people dont have LTE available at their area so would that mean they get unlimited 3G since they didnt use any LTE at all?
    Think about it...

    Yes, it makes sense to count all data but as I said, ATT shows a lot less than what I have transferred with my iPhone.
    I was thinking that ATT is slow in reporting the data transfer but the counter does increment and says it's "current" per their page.
    Also, I do have LTE in my area (Portland, OR) - most of the time I'm on LTE but sometimes I drop on "4G".

    It wouldn't surprise me to only count LTE data because the plan is called:
