    Just curious ...


    1. Is 3G honestly faster than 4G?

    2. As more and more people start to use 4G networks, will that free up 3G networks, making them possibly faster?

    3. Which 4G network is the best right now, speed and coverage wise?

    4G is faster than 3G, although carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T have HSPA+ support for all Android devices. So you can still get some 4G speeds on a 3G phone, It will work up to 7.2 mbs down.

    I highly doubt that it will make them faster, at least not for a while. Since 4G devices use 3G as well when not in 4G coverage.

    This last question is tough to answer, because Verizon's LTE network is by far the fastest, although I believe technically T-Mobile has the largest 4G network. As for the best coverage, and highest speeds that just might be T-Mobile.
