DETROIT— AT&T plans to roll out its 4G LTE in Detroit by the end of the year, bringing customers the latest generation of wireless network technology and faster mobile Internet speeds.
LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile Internet speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Today, smartphones download fastest on AT&T 4G LTE. Customers will be able to stream, download, upload, and game faster than ever before on the latest LTE-compatible smartphones, tablets and devices.
“Detroit enjoys AT&T’s fast 4G speeds today as part of the nation’s largest 4G network, and our teams will be working hard across the city toward our upcoming 4G LTE launch,” said Jim Murray, president of AT&T Michigan. “AT&T customers in Detroit can look forward to even faster speeds this year, on our leading lineup of smartphones, tablets and other devices.”
Even as AT&T continues to expand its 4G LTE coverage in 2012 and 2013, customers can get 4G speeds outside of 4G LTE areas on our 4G HSPA+ network, unlike competitors’, where customers fall back to slower 3G technologies when outside of 4G LTE coverage.
Over the past five years, AT&T invested more than $115 billion into operations and into acquiring spectrum and other assets that have enhanced our wireless and wired networks.
