4G Connections on your current phone. NOW! Maybe

Well isn’t this just the week for wild rumors and tipsters.

We just received an anonymous tip informing us some of the carriers have been testing 3G/4G connectivity using existing cell phones that we already own.  Apparently the carriers have piggy backed a different signal on the existing cell towers and this signal may be available for us to use.

We have no idea how valid this rumor is but we’ll be doing more investigating to see what we can find out so stay tuned for any updates.  I sure don’t want to miss out on the opportunity of getting a 4G connection on my G1 and Nexus.

UPDATE: We may have some more valid confirmation of this rumor from our good SuperD friend, BenBuchacher.  Check out his comments here.
