A month ago, AT&T was struggling to expand their 4G services in the US. Fast forward to today, we learn they’re expanding it to 12 new regions. The service will start rolling out next month, right in time for summer. AT&T customers will get a lot of benefits from this new service besides faster internet speeds. Among them are access to 4G-capable devices and faster response times.
AT&T will begin rolling out their new and improved service in Cleveland. Larry Evans, General Manager of AT&T Ohio and Western Pennsylvania, says “our teams will be working hard across the city toward our upcoming launch” which is this summer. In addition to Cleveland, 4G LTE will also expand to the following cities and states:
• Akron and Canton, Ohio
• Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana
• Bloomington, Lafayette, and Muncie, Indiana
• St. Louis, Missouri
• Naples, Florida
• Bryan-College Station, Texas
• and Staten Island, New York City
4G LTE delivers internet speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Faster internet means faster content streaming, downloads, uploads, and online gaming. Besides internet, response time is also faster with LTE allowing web pages to load faster. AT&T customers get to have more options too once the expansion is complete. By then, smartphones and tablets with LTE technology will be offered.
Earlier this month, AT&T urged its customers in New York to upgrade their 2G devices. Previously, the carrier attempted to acquire T-Mobile to increase their spectrum.
