Re: [Eng] Videotron 4G speeds and SGS3
said by SkidR0we :It's simple. Some people call it 3G, others 4G. But it's the same thing. Don't worry about the icon. It's just an icon.
If anyone can help clear this up for me and explain to me how the videotron 4g works I would appreciate it.
Videotron's version of the Galaxy S3 supports up to 42 Mbps in DC-HSPA mode. Not all of their network has been upgraded to 42 Mbps yet however (but Laval is covered). So in some areas you will be limited to 21 Mbps.
Also, Android turn HSPA off to save battery when not in use. That's why you can sometimes see a 3G icon. It should switch to H, H+ or 4G when you are using data.
said by SkidR0we :Maybe that's good for Vidétron's network, but I hit over 20Mbps most of the time.
I guess I shouldn't complain then, because I average about 6mbps.
said by zorxd:I thought they were different, where 3G ghad a max speed of 21 and 4G had a max of 42.

said by GuiGQc:This is one definition out of many. Most Canadian carriers consider 21 Mbps HSPA to be 4G.

Même Telus sont mêlé. Ils appelaient le 21Mbps le 3G+ dans le temps, et maintenant ils l'ont renommé.
