Telstra 4G FDD 1800MHz LTE is already struggling to cope with a mere 500,000 subscribers in very limited coverage zone, I have the HTC One XL and cant get LTE at my house or work but when in Sydney city it will connect to 4G but speed is already slowed down to approx 15Mbits/15Mbits, its only gonna get worse now that Apple will launch this unit into the Australian market.

Or, is it just because it's Apple who is doing it now...? Talking about misleading or false advertising...
LTE Network coverage are not fully mature in most countries, so there are lots of locations where LTE Networks are next to useless!
The fourth generation network which carriers are calling is actually not true 4G.
According to Internatinal Telecommunication Union, if the network meets the peak download speed of 100mbps in moving train or car, then it will considered as '4G'.
