Re: [iPhone] Post your iPhone 5 speed tests

I guess the speeds are better in the bigger cities, eh? *sigh*

I'm not even in the big city, I'm in an unincorporated county.

What's the difference between 4G and LTE? Your phone shows 4G, and mine shows LTE.

4G is HSPA+ - kinda 3G on steroids but not truly 4G.

Right. Like the bell curve but for carriers!

Yep, and as far as I know, AT&T is the only carrier that will show 4G when you are on HSPA+. Rogers here shows 3G because that's really what it is.

It showed 3G on AT&T until the iOS update prior to iOS 6.

OK, Thanks. The other reason why I asked, is that the AT&T stores down here have big banners that say "4G LTE", as almost to say that 4G is LTE.

Well LTE Advanced is a 4G technology, but 4G is not just LTE Advanced (there's 802.16m and 802.16e). LTE itself is not a 4G technology, but most providers use LTE to mean LTE Advanced.

HSPA+ is technically 3G, and my 3GS with Bell still shows "3G" (even though Bell now markets HSPA+ as 4G to fall in line with AT&T (who screwed over the marketing for everybody)).

Actually it was tmobile that screwed over the marketing. When wimax first came out it and lte were known as 4g. Then tmobile starts calling their hsdpa 4g, and next thing ya know, everybody has 4g.

Well then, I stand corrected. Regardless of who started it in the 'States, the Canadian carriers caught on eventually.
