3G vs LTE-Advanced

Does it make any sense to you? It didn't make any sense to me either a few years ago. But this little snippet from Wikipedia makes it all very clear:

LTE provides up to 326.4 Mbit/s for downlink and 86.4 Mbit/s for uplink. LTE-Advanced, in development as a minor update to LTE networks, supports maximum download rates of over 1 Gbit/s.
Basically, I want LTE-Advanced now. Interesting that it's only a "minor update" to existing LTE networks. Apparently there's only one of these planned and in production at the moment... in Oslo. I'm moving to Norway, b'bye!
