The Latest Hak5 HakTip Runs Down Cellular Data Standards

Hak5 Logo Today seems to be turning into video day.

The latest Hak5 HakTip covers one of my pet peeves – cellular data standard nomenclature, and the way marketing speak plays fast and loose with the standards. A prime example – T-Mobile’s HSPA+ service is not 4G. T-Mobile has no 4G network, no matter what they’re marketing department says. It is a 3G standard – you could call it 3.5G or 3.75G at best. Anyway, the video is a nice little rant on the subject.
