    Hello everyone, I have T-Mobiles unlimited talk text, and data plan on my 6s Plus. When I use my iPhone, all it ever displays is LTE in the upper left corner where the wifi, and network bars are at. Is LTE the same as 4G, or is 4G better? Everyone else at home have androids on the same plan, and they always show 4G LTE. I was just wondering if this is something I should be concerned about, thank you for any help/answers,

    LTE is best. I think with some Androids, they show 4G LTE but they are pretty much the same thing. With T-Mobile, they brand 3.5G as just 4G, so yes LTE is best.

    So don't worry, there's no issues with this.

    Ah true, thank you! Yeah, I'm just used to seeing 4G LTE instead of just LTE by itself, so I thought I'd ask. Thank you for the answer!!

    4G in most places is not pure 4G. They allowed speeds less than pure 4G to be called such. This 4G ranges 3 to 8 Mbps speeds, where LTE ranges from 5 to 12 Mbps. LTE is pure 4G. It's faster than 4G. But in practical application, you won't notice the difference when downloading anything.
