ATT has expanded its 4G LTE network in Austin, bringing more customers the latest generation of wireless network technology. The cell carrier launched 4G LTE in Austin on January 5, 2012, and the expanded coverage is part of its ongoing rollout across the market. Here is more info:
AT&T 4G LTE coverage now includes San Marcos and Kyle, creating continuous coverage along the IH-35 corridor from San Antonio through Austin. The expansion also covers cities north of Austin through Jerrel.
AT&T 4G LTE provides several benefits, 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.
-Cool new devices. AT&T offers several LTE-compatible devices, including new AT&T 4G LTE smartphones and tablets, such as the first LTE Windows Phone Nokia Lumia 900, Samsung Galaxy Note, and Pantech Element tablet.
-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, two-way 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.
