Point taken. However, if the towers have been upgraded, but the rest of the network hasn't been upgraded to match, then the network really hasn't been upgraded then, has it?
Which brings me back to my original point, that the entire network has not been upgraded.
Saying that the network is upgraded because the towers have been upgraded is like putting performance tires on a Pinto and calling it a Ferrari...
As a customer, I don't give a damn about technicalities or marketing, I care about the end result.

I interpreted "entire network" to mean "all cities". And "4G 21Mbps" to mean "HSPA+". If that's not what you meant, then I apologize. But I'm very curious what the bottleneck is. My first guess would be that it's tower placement/density, since anything else should be fairly easy to fix (tower sites are the only thing that take a long time to acquire, right?).
