    Is 4G Superstick really runs on 4G?

    Demerok

      What brings me this question was if 4G superstick really runs on 4G why its not equipped to get LTE signal?

       

      LTE = 4G

       

      4G superstick optimun signal is only HSPA+ 

       

      HSPA+ is enhanced 3G or 3.9G specifically

       

      so HSPA+ is still within the spectrum of 3G technology.

       

      Globe made this deceptive marketing ads claiming that they had expanded their 4G network nationwide at the expense of $700M.

       

      But technically speaking 4G superstick is not 4G.

       

      Here is the different signal you may observe on your dongle

       

      GPRS = 2G

      EDGE = 2.5G

      WCDMA = 3G

      HSDPA = 3.5G

      HSPA+ = 3.9G

       

      and

       

      LTE = 4G
