It's a marketing ploy, nothing more. Telcos started calling their HSDPA+ networks 4G so they could have a reason to push new phones to customers. 4G should be restricted to LTE, but now the waters are muddled and anything that's not strictly 3G is called 4G. And strictly speaking, even the networks we have nowadays (including LTE ones) are not 4G as this requires a minimum of 100Mb/s.
