I wouldn't call 4G a blatent scam. Is it "true" 4G? No. But still, I think the consumer deserves to know that on phone A, you get 3/1 speeds, and on phone B, you get 7+/3+ speeds. That's a drastic difference, and not a "scam".

I can see why they called it 4G. I mean, what should they call it? 3G+? When we hit 20/5, is that 3G ultra? 50/10 is that 3G super? That's still only half way to 100mbps, by the time we hit 90/20 we'll have 3G ultra super mega speed plus. These are all huge leaps that really do deserve to be advertised, and the 3G label wouldn't have done it very well. What would you rather they had done?

The only thing I can think of is start advertising numbers, but most consumers don't care about that nearly as much, they just don't have much to compare to.
