So tell me, why is it ITU has stated that LTE, as specified in 3GPP rel 8, does not meet the requirements for it to be considered 4G, defined in rel 9?
LTE-Advanced has the ability to be considered 4G, as published in 3GPP TR 36.912.
True 4G networks need to be able, for example, reach 1Gb/s downstream.

You did see that what I linked came directly from the ITU?


They wrote it, not me. It is hard to deny what I said, when they put it in writing.

"ITU has determined that “LTE-Advanced” and “WirelessMAN-Advanced” should be accorded the official designation of IMT-Advanced."

IMT-Advanced are requirements by ITU-R for 4g networks.

It then goes on saying that " IMT-Advanced is considered as “4G”, although it is recognized that this term, while undefined, may also be applied to the forerunners of these technologies, LTE and WiMax, and to other evolved 3G technologies providing a substantial level of improvement in performance and capabilities with respect to the initial third generation systems now deployed."

"May also be applied" - it has become more convenient this way.

You say potato.....

How you interpret it, matters not. They made it clear that you can refer to it as 4G.

I think think ITU definition makes no sense. To me 2g, 3g, and 4g means the 4th generation of hardware. If new hardware technology gets put up on all existing cell sites, like LTE, then its 4g. If they put up new hsdpa hardware, that's 3g hardware. Wimax is a new hardware generation, so its 4g. The speed has nothing to do with it.

I take LTE over battery. Video chat is smooth, streaming, web browsing, downloading sometimes faster then wifi, YouTube, Netflix this is a few advantages in having 25mbps/10mbps LTE speed. The bad battery life has a lot to do with the nexus not LTE. On my SGS 2 skyrocket battery life was perfect.

Actually, it has everything to do with LTE and 1st gen LTE devices.

Two radios running at once eats battery.
