Nearly Half of Americans Feel That 4G LTE is Unnecessary

While mobile providers AT&T and Verizon Wireless have been making strides to expand their respective 4G LTE networks, a new survey shared with AppleInsider reveals that nearly 1 in every 2 Americans feels that having 4G LTE networking is unnecessary. Investment firm Piper Jaffray conducted a survey involving 3,000 American consumers and the results found that roughly 47 percent of individuals did not feel the need for 4G LTE, while an additional 25 percent of people feel that 4G and 4G LTE technologies are the same thing.

The new iPad with Retina display was Apple’s first 4G LTE device, while rumors over the past several months claim that the Cupertino-based corporation will release its next-generation iPhone in September with 4G LTE mobile broadband. Apple is considered slow to enter the market with a 4G LTE handset, as many competitors have already released such devices, although it might prove to be a smart move since mobile carriers are still expanding their networks and don’t quite yet offer true nationwide coverage.
