AT&T launched 4G LTE in Cleveland on May 31, 2012, and the expanded coverage is part of its ongoing rollout across the market. AT&T 4G LTE coverage now includes parts of Amherst, Grafton, LaGrange, Lorain and Oberlin. Watch here to see several of the benefits AT&T 4G LTE provides, including:  Faster speeds. LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile Internet speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G***. Customers can stream, download, upload and game faster than ever before.  Reliability. AT&T has the most reliable 4G LTE network. Based on our analysis of Nielsen 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 technology offers 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, twoway video calling and telemedicine.  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,” said State Senator Gayle Manning. “The expansion of this service in the Lorain area is going to help the entrepreneurs, small businesses and hardworking citizens who are striving everyday as we continue to turn Ohio around and enable it to prosper again.” AT&T’s 4G Network This expansion is part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan announced in Fall 2012 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 macro cell sites nationwide by yearend 2015, as well as deploy small cells and add 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 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.***** “We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Lorain responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, reliably, on the best devices,” said AT&T External Affairs Director Kevin Lynch. “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. AT&T operates the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network****** including more than 32,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots at popular restaurants, hotels, bookstores and retailers, and provides access to more than 461,000 hotspots globally through roaming agreements. Most AT&T smartphone customers get access to our entire national Wi-Fi network at no additional cost, and Wi-Fi usage doesn’t count against customers’ monthly wireless data plans. AT&T also is a leading developer of Distributed Antenna Systems, which utilize multiple small antennas to maximize coverage and speed within stadiums, convention centers, office buildings, hotels and other areas where traditional coverage methods are challenging. AT&T invested more than $1.5 billion in its Ohio wireless and wireline networks from 2010 through 2012, with a focus on expanding 4G LTE mobile Internet coverage and enhancing the overall performance of its networks. Additionally, in 2013 we hired more than 900 new employees in Ohio, many as the result of our continued investment in Ohio to support our customer service and network operations. AT&T innovates and has invested more in the U.S. than any other public company over the past six years (2008-2013). From 2008 to 2013, AT&T invested more than $140 billion, when you combine capital and spectrum acquisitions. Over the past six years, AT&T has invested more capital into the U.S. economy than any other public company. Investing in our wireless network continues to be a priority. Investment in our wireless and wireline networks for 2014 is expected to be in the $21 billion range, with increased spending in wireless. In a September 2013 report, the Progressive Policy Institute ranked AT&T No. 1 on its list of “Investment Heroes” that are investing capital in the U.S. * AT&T products and services are provided or offered by subsidiaries and affiliates of AT&T Inc. under the AT&T brand and not by AT&T Inc. ** Limited 4G LTE availability in select markets.
