    If you mean HSPA+ (as what the iPhone shows as "4G") then yeah most GSM prepaid carrier, EXCEPT T-Mobile, has it.

    LTE? None so far.

    In simple term, nobody don't need 4G LTE. A 3.5G (aka HSPA+) network is fast enough with speed up to 10mbps down/ 2mbps up.

    Like what the previous posters have said, most regional GSM carriers offers GSM prepaid data plan.

    Straight talk, Red Pocket, H2o, AT&T go Phone and T-mobile sim in areas where 1900mhz has been refarmed. I have been using straight talk for 8 months on 3 iphones with out any issues. Here is honest speed test and done all over like Dallas tx, Kansas City, MO, Columbia, MO, Chicago, IL and Champaign, IL

    If you're in an area where they have refarmed for 4G (HSPA+) on the 1900mhz band then you will get 4G. If not you will receive Edge. Most areas are still on Edge.
