    OK, so yes this may be an interesting place to post this, but thought I would.

    I'm going to pose the question to the folks out here.

    What classifies a network (cellular) as a 4G (4th Generation) Network.

    For me, it is a network that is natively IP enabled, without the use of TDM (perhaps the backhaul can be TDM). It needs to be of high speed broadband (3 Mbps+ down, 1+ Mbps up), and be prepared for high capacity, high number of users to get this type of experience consistently. Now that adds some ambiguity into the mix, but I am alright with that.

    In my eye's all of the current "4G" stuff us just marketing until they meet the ITU's standards requirement of 100mbps.

    Yea, it's 100 Mbps. None of this paltry 3Mbps nonsense haha

    OK, so I think I may have been able to refine my thought a little more. Native IP instead of TDM is where I was trying to go with my thoughts originally that I could not spell out.
