Anyway, in Poland, Orange (Centertel) uses "3G" to describe their
3.6 Mbps / 7.2 Mbps HSDPA/HSUPA data services, and "4G" to describe
their 21.6 Mbps / 43.2 Mbps HSPA+ data services (also misleadingly
called 21 Mbps / 42 Mbps services).
So T-Mo's calling their 21 and 42 Mbps data "4G" isn't one whit out of line.
