AT&T 4G LTE coverage now includes parts of Ashville, Circleville and Pickaway County. Watch here to see several of the benefits AT&T 4G LTE provides, including: Faster speeds. LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile Internetspeeds up to 10 times faster than 3G***. Customers can stream, download, upload and game faster than ever before. Reliability. AT&T not only has the nation’s fastest 4G LTE network, but now also has the most reliable 4G LTE network. According to independent third-party data, AT&T has the highest success rate for delivering mobile content across nationwide 4G LTE networks. Cool new devices. AT&T offers several LTE-compatible devices, including new AT&T 4G LTE smartphones and tablets. Faster response time. LTE technologyoffers lower latency, or the processing time it takes to move data through a network, such as how long it takes to start downloading a webpage or file once you’ve sent the request. Lower latency helps to improve services like mobile gaming, two- way video calling and telemedicine.
  • 2. More efficient use of spectrum.Wireless spectrum is a finite resource, and LTE uses spectrum more efficiently than other technologies, creating more space to carry data traffic and services and to deliver a better network experience. ―Fast and reliable mobile data is key to our growing economy. The launch of this service in Circleville is going to help the entrepreneurs, small businesses, and hardworking citizens who are striving every day to create a more prosperous Ohio,‖ said State Senator Troy Balderson. ―This investment is good news for my constituents because advancement in mobile technologies is a critical economic driver for businesses and consumers to remain competitive and to foster further economic growth.‖ ―I’m proud to say that Circleville is now among the communities enjoying this cutting-edge technology,‖ said State Representative Ron Hood. ―AT&T’s investment is an example of the company’s overall commitment to this area, and builds on our reputation as a strong region for business investment.‖ ―Technology is changing so rapidly,‖ said Circleville Mayor Don McIlroy. ―Our children need access to the latest technology tooIs just like their peers from larger communities. We are delighted that this new technology is now available in Circleville.‖ ―In an information-driven economy, the ability to have access to the latest communications technology is critical,‖ saidAmy Elsea, president & CEO of the Pickaway County Chamber of Commerce. ―Investments like this assure that businesses of all sizes can compete effectively in a global economy. I would like to thank AT&T for this investment in our community.‖ AT&T’s 4G Network This expansion is part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan announced last fall to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks. Through this investment, AT&T is supporting its customers’ growing desire for high-speed Internet access and new mobile, app and cloud-based services. As part of Project VIP, AT&T plans to add more than 10,000 macro cell sites nationwide by
  • 3. year-end 2015, as well as deploy more than 40,000 small cells and add more than 1,000 Distributed Antenna Systems to increase the density of its wireless network. AT&T’s innovation and investment have resulted in a nationwide 4G network with ultra-fast speeds and a consistent user experience. The great performance of AT&T’s fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network continues to be validated by independent third-party testing: Our 4G LTE service was recognized as having faster average download and upload speeds than any of our competitors in PCWorld/TechHive’s most recent 20-market speed tests— the second consecutive year that AT&T has ranked first overall. PCWorld/TechHive also ranked AT&T’s as the fastest combination of 3G and 4G services in the 20 cities it tested.**** And AT&T was named America’s fastest 4G LTE network in PC Magazine’s 2013 Fastest Mobile Networks 30-market study— and also swept the top rankings in all six U.S. regions from coast to coast: Northeast, Southeast, North-Central, South-Central, Northwest and Southwest.***** Even as AT&T continues to expand its 4G LTE coverage, customers can get4G speeds outside of 4G LTE areas on our 4G HSPA+ network, unlike some competitors, where smartphone customers may fall back to slower 3G technologies when outside of LTE coverage. ―We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE networkin Circleville reflects what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, reliably, on the best devices,‖ said AT&T External Affairs Director Nicole Staples Walker. ―We’ll continue to invest and transform our infrastructure in response to the demands of the Ohio marketplace.‖ AT&T’s focus to deliver the best possible mobile Internet experience goes beyond 4G to embrace additional connection technologies.
