So Apple could trademark "WiFi+4G" since no one owns that string of letters and symbols and you wouldn't say Apple is misleading?
Apple doesn't own "4G", nor do Telstra, they don't get to redefine what it is, or what it isn't.
Who does the own the cardinal number four followed by the letter G? It's my understand that no one does which is why writing 4G iPhone would refer to the 4th generation iPhone, the iPhone 4.
Since Telstra is the only 4G network provider in Australia, its is the defacto standard here.
So now there is a definition to '4G' and you think Telestra defines it. And here I hoped you were being objective.
So if you market a product here that is 4G compliant, then either, it should work with Telstra's network or you should clearly state that it does not. Not in the fine print.
And it is compliant according to the ITU which seems a much more logical usage of the number-letter combination than going by what Telestra says or claiming because it's not colloquial it means it's a lie.
Other vendors don't seem to have a problem producing 4G products that work with Telstra.
Way to complete your argument with a fallacy.
