is 4G the same as LTE

Hi, I have a Z3 Compact on the 3 Network, it use to show 4G next to the signal strength indicator but since the end of March it has shown LTE. 3 claim it has nothing to do with them and it is because of a software up date from Sony, the phone I have now is not my original phone but a refurbished one front their 3 Rescue service due to me breaking the screen on my original phone. Android version is 6.0.1, baseband version is 8947-AAAAANAZQ-00112-61 build number is 23.5.A.1.291. Can you please shed some light on this for me.

4G = LTE unless you have some shady carrier network calling H+ = 4G as AT&T has done and other networks.

I've also noticed that some times I get H+ as well
