Is this plan 3G or 4G?

In this plan it says:

"4.5 GB Data at 3G speed⁴"

In footnote 4 it says:

"4 - Plans with 4G LTE data can access maximum LTE download speeds (manufacturer rated at up to 900 Mbps; expected average speeds 12-250 Mbps). Plans with 3G data may reach download speeds of up to 3 Mbps, with the coverage and reliability of the LTE network."

 

I don't see anywhere explained whether this is really a 3G and 4G plan or only a 3G plan, and how does one aquire 4G access; I don't see 4G option as a purchase or an add-on option.

 

So what "G" is really included in this plan?

 

Thanks!

Your plan includes of 3Mbps while connected to the LTE network. The footnote about LTE plans does not apply to you.

So a difference between PM and Telus is that I should get faster 4G downloads with Telus because they don't limit the speed.

@Catalyst Yes, and a proper customer service, and more expensive plans😅

There's also a cost difference as well.

I used to insist on having 4G data too. I'm glad I tried the 3G at PM...I don't do alot of streaming of HD movies. The 3G is more than sufficient for me and cheaper too. You'd have to determine what's best for your lifestyle though.

I think this is already answered but it's 3G that's been slowed. 

 

Hope that helps.
