HSPA+(high speed packet access)is 4g.Not LTE. Tmo nevered marketed it as LTE.Their is just as fast as Verizon's and faster a lil bit than ATT

Honestly with this news the Note 2 pretty much is the perfect phone. This is my first contract phone in over 4 years and I actually don't feel "jailed" to it for 20 months. I had the international Note 1 and its flaws (e.g. low speaker & earpiece volume) really left me unsatisfied. But I'm so happy with my Note 2 I might not need Phonearena anymore... jk I still love reading up on the new stuff.
