    File this under weird, but my 520 says I'm getting 4G since I updated to amber last week. If memory serves me correctly, they were a 3G max, was it not?

    4G showing on the phone does not mean LTE. It means HSPA, with is 3G+ basically.

    If you were getting actual 4G (meaning LTE), it would say LTE instead. But, as you said, the 520 doesn't have that.

    It's just changing what it's calling it. It did not enable a hidden LTE radio. You're getting the exact same signal and the exact same speed. It's just calling it "4G" now, as do other Lumia phones. (when I leave an LTE area w/ my 1020 it shows "4G" instead of 3G or H or whatever.

    Yeah, I don't know why they call it 4G LTE because they are not interchangeable terms.

    Well, they were supposed to be until T-Mobile and AT&T just started calling their HSPA+ networks "4G" when Verizon started rolling out their LTE network way ahead of them.

    Sprint was actually first out with a real 4G network, though it was their ill-fated WiMAX network which they've since abandoned and are finally rolling out an LTE network.

    ATT has both 4G and LTE.

    As does T-Mobile now in refarmed areas. I get both 4G and LTE showing on my 920.
