    Quick answer: No. The radios/modulation used in the various 3G technologies vs the 4G technologies are completely different. This of course is true of actual 4G technology. Not, really fast 3G that really isn't 4G technology :)

    My understanding the gsm hspa in our phones might be able to be as fast as 3.5g, but no, not 4g.

    it dont matter to me this phone Downloads @ 2 megabits with 3g & uploads at between .85 -1.2 mega bits a second done by speed test.net app thats fast enough for me especially since I heard the 4G prices are crazy priced with very low data allowed

    Its funny they can even call there 4g 4g. The speed required to be true 4g by definition is 100mb download speed

    I've often wondered why nobody goes after the companies for false advertising.

    i think its more the idea that 4G has the POTENTIAL to go 100MBPs not exactly saying itll be that fast. its definitely faster than 3G

    What they call 4G does not meet established standards for 4G data transmission rates (among other standards). Unfortunately, the general public is so poorly informed that they have no idea, and yet again, the corporations are using buzzwords to control the unwashed masses.

    They get beyond the legalities with the fine print, mainly how location and reception make a difference in speed, etc, etc. Also the hardware (phone) and software (browser) make a difference. Its all BS.
