The naming of generations of wireless and claims for performance cause conflict as soon as they shift from the engineering development stage to the marketing stage.

In my thinking, only IMT-Advanced standards based networks should have been called '4G'. That demarcation would allow networks that used LTE-Advanced based equipment that meets typical interoperability and conformance requirements, to be called 4G. Of course, that would allow for a large range of suitability and performance. However, how else could 'True 4G' or 'True LTE-A' be policed? The industry is prone for marketing departments and managers to take liberties such as setting '4G' to relate to bandwidth which the company itself sets and which is open to vagaries of field performance.
