Will an unlocked iPhone 5 be able to recieve 4G and or LTE on the Go Phone Network?

I've read the different specifications on the Apple website comparing the two models of iPhone 5's, and I'm curious if I will be able to recieve 4G and/or LTE with the unlocked phone on the Go Phone Network? I know they've allowed 4G LTE on Go Phone now, Im not sure if it will be able to though. Just ordered it, I hope i didn't make a mistake, as this was half of the reason I wanted to upgrade to the 5 from my 4.

If you ordered a unlocked US model from Apple and use the 60.00 gophone plan you should be good to go. Did you verify that the phone you are getting is the unlocked one and not the no contract one? They are two different models and only one is unlocked.

Is the $60 plan somehow the only smartphone plan getting 4G?

I wouldn't say it's a 'yes' for sure, although it may end up working as long as you have LTE in your area. If it does work, great, you able to use the fastest mobile technology around! If it doesn't appear to be working, then it looks like 3G (and perhaps "4G") is your best friend(s).

This will definitely be interesting to find out.
