First of all, you act like you think you own the world, claiming that anyone not agreeing with you have poor arguments. It is not like Apple left only small countries out when it comes to LTE, but the whole EU. We are talking about a market that has twice as big population as US.
I have no clue on how to get a cached version of a website that is a month old. But since you are claiming that I am wrong and that Apple never promised such thing, why do you not get the proof that for example the site "http://www.apple.com/se/ipad/features/
" does say that LTE is not supported by the four local operators. Check the dates March 7 and March 8 and March 9...
I ran the Macworld article in google translation tool and below you can see the result. It states that Apple is admits that it was a mistake stating that 4G in Sweden was supported on the new iPad. See the translation:
Apple: No 4g in Sweden
Apple confirms that the new iPhone will not be able to handle 4g in Sweden even though it was promised on the Swedish site. "It was a mistake," says Apple.
Apple's Swedish press contact told Telekom Online that the new iPhone does not support 4G (LTE) in Sweden.
Until yesterday morning, it was Apple's Swedish site that 4G will be supported by Vodafone, Three, Telia and Tele second
- It was a mistake, says Petter Arnstedt, press officer at Apple in Sweden, to Telekom Online.
The reason is that the new iPhone does not handle the frequencies used for 4G in Sweden. It handles only lte in the bands 2.1 GHz and 700 MHz. Europe uses the 2.6 gigahertz and 800 megahertz. The bands that Apple is currently occupied by television and 3G.
The text that promised to 4g would work in Sweden was up on Apple's Swedish web notified until yesterday afternoon. But after MacWorld wrote about the problem of frequencies changed the text on the Apple site.
In Sweden, one could use the new iPhone to surf in 3G with a maximum of 42 megabits per second, if the mobile network technology supports HSPA + dc.
When MacWorld reaches Petter Arnstedt he has no further comment, but refers to what is in the Telecom Online.
