i think Rev. A is like 3.5G. the 4G stuff i think would be WiMax for sprint and verizon will use LTE for 4G.
The 3G announcement you here often are for the GSM (AT&T / Tmobile) networks getting 3G data.

"From what we, down here in the USA, hear about Rogers exhorbitantly priced data plans, Rogers is apparently very proudd of their 3.5G network"

Ill keep my unlimited data and text for 40 with my calling included.

Verdict:
