I don't exactly agree with this.
I Had and iPhone 4s that was HSPA+ sometimes called 4G and the speed test maxed out at 10-12Mbps. AT&T Recently activated 4G LTE and my HTC One is at times 4x faster than the iPhone was (Top speeds of 40 - 41Mbps).
I have run dozens of speedtest on both devices and can tell you for sure that 4G does not equal LTE. My phone goes from 3G to 4G to LTE nearly everyday and the 3 are totally different.
So with AT&T
4G =
HSPA+
and 4GLTE is in it's own league

Sprint's WiMAX 4G was so slow it was beat by T-Mobile's 3G network
