    Isn't 4G what some providers call their slightly updated 3G networks?

    4G is meaningless.

    HSPA+ is 4G
    WIMAX is 4G
    LTE is 4G

    Simply saying 4G means nothing.

    Yeah, wouldn't really go by this. Although I would gladly welcome a 4g iPhone.

    I'm okay with the term 4G although iphone 5 is just having a DL speed of 21 mbps, less than 100mbps. After all, it is still 3 times faster than iPhone 4, and ITU has already changed its definition to include HSPA+ as 4G.

    A big question is how Verizon will handle the AT&T version of the iphone 5 with HSPA+ vs their version of an iphone 5 on their slow 3G network? If there is no LTE version, AT&T is going to hammer Verizon in their ads by stating that their version of the iPhone 5 will be 10 to 20 times faster than the Verizon iPhone 5.

    why do you think verizon pushed LTE out so quick? They needed to compete with HSPA+

    But there is no proof that the Verizon iPhone 5 will be LTE. If not, AT&T will hammer them on that. This will be a big win for AT&T.

    I wasn't talking about the iPhone 5 being LTE compatible. I was talking in general why verizon pushed LTE out so quick
