LTE: Definitely not 4G

ETSI's Adrian Scrase gave the official definition of why LTE is definitely NOT 4G, although some still insist on saying it is. As he explained, LTE was submitted as part of the IMT-2000 family of 3G standards.
"The 4G process has not even started yet," he said during a conference session at MWC, adding that a more mature form of LTE is likely to be submitted as 4G technology under the IMT-Advanced process at the ITU.
"But I don't think we should get too hung up on whether things are called 3G or 4G," he said.
