I think that calling the new plans 3G gives the wrong impression that PM is using old tech

Really PM already states it's basically 3G speeds up to 2.5mbps but with coverage and reliability of LTE (in other words it is LTE capped at 2.5mbps download speeds)

Why not label it LTE lite or something to communicate it is still LTE but just tiered speeds

No different than cable or dsl internet that is speed throttled, you still get the same latency

My LTE speeds vary from 7 to 20+mbps depending where I am (proximity to towers or within buildings) but latency remains about the same so the so called 3G speed plans using LTE should have similar latency as 4G speed LTE

Thoughts?

Just call it what it is.  Capped at 2.5 LTE data.

Have definitely passed along this feedback already to Public Mobile.  The community oracles also dislike the naming and think it's very confusing and misleading.
