LTE is a data-only technology, so voice calls will run over our HSPA+ network until we have a Voice over LTE (VoLTE) solution in place.
4G LTE network is built with the latest technology available and backed by a reliable and already blazing fast 4G network. That means that when 4G LTE is not available in a supported area, mobile devices will shift to a 4G network. This is in contrast to the steep drop-off in quality of experience provided by other carriers, which are often limited by overly congested 4G networks.
4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) is an enhancement of Globe’s nationwide 4G HSPA+ technology. LTE delivers faster speeds—especially for uploads—and more capacity.
•4G LTE network will operate on the same band as our 4G HSPA+ network, Band IV, which uses 1700 MHz and 2100 MHz frequencies to transmit data services.
•4G LTE does not carry voice services, so calls will fall back to our HSPA+ network until voice over LTE (VoLTE) software is ready.
•The 4G LTE experience will differ depending on several factors including spectrum configuration, device, coverage, and location

But technically speaking 4G superstick is not 4G. But on the other end it is considered as
4G GPRS = 2G
EDGE = 2.5G
WCDMA = 3G
HSDPA = 3.5G
HSPA+ = 3.9G
LTE = 4G
WIMAX v1 = 4G
WIMAX v2 = 4G
