    I've been reading conflicting reports on whether the ativ s is going to be 3g, 4g, or 4gLTE. Does anyone know (at least for stateside...)

    Anyone know any more details on the Odyssey as well?

    4G and 4G LTE is the same thing. 4G = LTE.

    The problem here in the United States (and possibly elsewhere) is that wireless carriers started to label HSDPA+ (3G or 3.5G) as 4G. So now because of moronic marketing we now have to differentiate between true 4G and fake 4G by calling them 4G LTE and 4G respectively.

    So in this context, 4G does not equal LTE

    Nokia was behind the push for H+ They were planning to call this 4g after they improve on it, so companies started calling it 4g. But at&t went along with multiple carriers with LTE standard rendering Nokia's meego plan useless thus the Change in plan.

    Same thing with T-Mobile Edge. It wasn't all that much slower than Verizon 3G.

    I'm not sure where you are but Verizons LTE is a **** of a lot faster than T Mo hspa+in LA. Depending on location speeds will vary (esp on att) but the consensus is LTE is a lot faster than hspa+ and wimax.

    Canadian Ativ S has faux G (dual hspa+ 42 mbps dl) and 4G (LTE). LTE isn't available in my area yet but data speeds can be very fast. I notice a big difference from my previous phone. (HD7, same network)

    It also has AWS HSPA bands.

    May I ask if you are using it on a US carrier, and if so, if you are getting 4G or LTE speeds on that carrier. Also, any regrets or bugs with the phone?

    So is the Ativ 4G compatible for the UK market?

    In Canada there is a Ativ S version that has single band LTE. The frequency of the carrier that provides LTE. Beware... One frequency only. Will only work with carriers that use that LTE frequency.
