Despite the 4G craze on most mobile phone devices prospective iPhone 5 buyers are hardly interested in the faster connectivity.
Surprising, we know. According to a survey by market analyst Piper Jaffray, nearly 47 percent of buyers interested in the iPhone 5 don’t feel the need for 4G on the brand new device, and another 26 percent don’t realize there is a difference in 4G LTE networks. The question rose after Piper Jaffray wanted to determine whether or not buyers would be turned off by Sprint’s still developing 4G LTE network.
A majority of users don’t even realize that there is a difference in 4G LTE between carriers and that they did not know who had the best 4G LTE service in America. Fortunately this is a very good sign for Sprint, who will assuredly be selling new iPhone when it is available.
Those that do purchase an iPhone 5 and are looking for 4G LTE connectivity would be best to go to Verizon or AT&T considering those two companies have the largest 4G LTE coverage in the United States. This survey only goes to show that a lot of people only care that they will have a new iPhone in their hands, not about how fast the device can download data.
