seems they added a 4G chip but didnt add a power amp or 4G antenna needed for 4G.

what do you guys think?
did they run out of time in the design phase?
did they realise battery life was terrible with 4G?

Chipset is based on optimus g, and cheaper to leave chip there.

I'll wait until they decide to switch it on and Orange get some competition in the UK.

Damn was just about to mention this, but yh seems to have working LTE on just band 4 so far (Canadian Rogers), but sadly isn't working on other bands eg band 14 and 17 which sprint and ATandT use I think. Good news is that US T-Mobile are said to use band 4 LTE when in a few months.

I do get LTE on Rogers Network. Google has no desire to leave it accessible. Clearly they made an error to begin with. If you want LTE you need to root and install old baseband.
