    Hi,
    I recently noticed that my passport showing "4G"network symbol not "4GLTE ". But some people's passport shows "4GLTE " with the same sim card(same provider). What's the difference between 4G and 4GLTE?

    Passport shows "4G"not " 4GLTE "-img_20141204_181825.png

    There is a difference LTE is a lot faster data. Have you tried looking under the network connections setting?

    4G = LTE, even by now in the US, because those people over there used to call hspa+ 4G in 2009

    Not exactly. Depends on each carrier, but AT&T definitely differentiates between 4G and LTE. Best way to test this out is to try another device, or perhaps see how a friend's connection shows up.

    The Carrier decides what shows up there. My carrier puts HSPA+ whereas others will call it 4G.

    Some carrier also puts 4G instead of LTE. I'd also seen 4GLTE... it's very confusing

    Try to contact your carrier but also, by experience... if you see LTE or 4GLTE and it falls down to 4G, then you're probably on HSPA

    Confused yet? Lol

    That's true. Firstly it shows 4GLTE, then it fall to 4G. Probably it is H+.
    Ok,it comes to another question : I change the same SIM card to my Lumia 1520, it shows "L". We know that Lumia device shows "H+"on the signal. But now it shows "L" now. I am sure it is 4G Network, but why it does not show "4GLTE " on my passport?

    Go to your "Mobile Network" settings and check if LTE is enabled under "Network Mode".

    The Network mode selection also shows how your carrier will display or has available. If you don't have LTE in the list, your SIM is either not an LTE SIM or your carrier uses 4G to signify LTE. You need a special LTE sim to get LTE. If you are using an old SIM and didn't have an LTE phone prior, you may just need a new SIM.

    When you open up the drop down list for network selection, what are the other options other than what you showed.

    If you are getting 50mbps, you are probably on LTE. Depending on the frequency, you may only get LTE outside or close to a tower.

    ... also ... there are coverage areas that are 4G and others that are 4G with LTE data ( most Rogers areas)

    when WIFI is available the LTE symbol goes away from my display but will return when WIFI is unavailable!!

    so LTE is telling me when the phone has using high speed data available from my mobile service and is turned off by the system when WIFI is available whether it is being used or not!!

    This is the situation in South Africa (according to my Q5)

    If I'm connected to a 2G network it displays "E" or "gsm"

    If I'm connected to a HSDPA or HSDPA+ it displays "3G"

    If I'm connected to a "LTE" or "LTE - A" network it displays "4G"

    This just makes it very simple for people to understand. So to wrap up it either displays "E" "3G" or "4G" and nothing else. Even though on "4G I can get 80+ mbps

    As far as I know 4G is LTE. Pending on the network you are on it will show just LTE or 4G or 4GLTE but there is no difference between to them H+ is HSPA+ a faster version of HSPA. Wich from my understanding is not as fast as LTE.

    from Rogers.com

    What is 4G?

    The different generations of wireless technology standards are generally not backwards compatible.

    Each generation usually results in a fundamental change in the nature of the service.

    For example, 3G encompassed the HSPA+ and EVDO standards for data transmission.

    The 4G standard refers to an all IP packet-switched network capable of delivering data speeds of 100 Mbit/s for high mobility and 1Gbit/s for fixed/low mobility systems.

    LTE, Mobile WiMAX and UMB (formerly EV-DO Rev.C) are examples of 4G wireless standards.

    Device manufacturers may refer to their handsets as being 4G, which generally means that they support high data speeds of up to 21Mbps.
