Apple wants to turn ‘3G’ into ‘4G’ to solve iPad 3 speed disputes

•, By Zack Whittaker

Summary: If you thought Apple had yet to go off the deep end, think again. In a bid to protect itself from legal troubles in Australia, the iPad maker is trying to define ‘3G’ speeds as ‘4G’ speeds.

Apple is currently in a legal dispute down under with the Australian competition regulator, but is attempting a novel way of digging its way out of trouble: by trying to rebrand what “4G” actually means.
Apple’s iPad 3 doesn’t work on any 4G LTE network outside North America. A few European countries have complained that Apple has misrepresented or misled consumers into thinking their shiny new iPad 3 could access the next-generation 4G LTE network.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is particularly displeased with Apple, and took the maker of shiny rectangles to court.
