Maybe the term "4G" is only used for LTE & WiMaxx in Australia.
Its really gray area as you are both right. Originally the governing body stated that only LTE and WiMax were considered 4g however they ammended their policy to allow all carriers to market their coverage as 4g. However its a term loosely used as 4g the term is based on the spectrums capability and not the coverage you are actually receiving, which are not true 4g speeds
