High speed packet access.
It is basically 3G with a speed boost.
Capable of low 4G speeds while still using current 3G tech.
That's why some call it 3.5G and some company's call it 4G.

If you use an OS other than the one released from your carrier, you will find different designations. Some use H+ while others will show 4G. Either way, it is the same speed and is not real 4G LTE. A nice bump up from straight 3g, but nothing like the speed you will get on a Z10.

Here is a very short and good article on the differences between H+/3G/4G and what the LTE means. Hope this helps everyone understand a little better.

I know it isn't a 4G device but only 3.5G.. Anyway it should appear as H+.. Unless it's running as 3.5G and my carrier doesn't have a specific logo for it..
I've seen some screens of other 9810 devices and many of them appears as H+.. Maybe I'll try a US firmware...

Hmm go to about deice versions in options > device
If it states Blackberry Torch 9810( 3G, Wifi) then your phone doesn't support H+! whatever firmware you use, won't make a difference
