AudiConnect 4g?

In many places on the Interwebs I read that the Audi Q3 is supposed to connect to the AT&T 4g network (not 4g LTE like the A3). On my MMI display it shows that I'm connected to the 3g network not 4g. What are you all seeing?

Ditto - My Q3 shows a 3G connection as well.

I think when they say 4G, they are really referring to HSPA+, or also know as 3.5G. It is a technology faster than 3G but not as fast as LTE.

Shouldn't we be getting a 4G or LTE connection in the car?

3G is soooo yesterday and slow!

Is 4G a noticeable difference over 3G? Do you guys feel like there are long loading times or something?

Yes, there is a noticeable difference between 4G and 3G. No, I don't notice long loading times with 3G.
