    Ok sorry to all, I am confused again about the HSPA+, they just said the iphone 5 has it as if it was new, I thought the 4S had this already as it was HSDPA and that included HSPA+ with ATTs fake "4G" marketing for those on ATT.

    Is this just apple marketing or did they really add HSPA+ with the iphone 5.

    They're not saying its new. They were just listing all the connectivity. All the way back to GPRS.

    Isn't this just 4G and not 4G LTE? Faster than 3G but not the fastest.

    He has HSPA at 14.4 which was the 4S but everyone said the 4S had HSPA+ So which is correct, I remember the 4S was advertised as 14.4 at the 4S keynote.

    4S maxed out at 14.4 HSPA+

    5 supports HSPA+ 21 and HSPA+ 42. In the US AT&T goes up to HSPA+ 21 and T-Mobile uses HSPA+ 42.
