AT&T 4G LTE Coming Soon to Bryan-College Station

More customers can look forward to ultra-fast mobile Internet on the latest LTE devices

Bryan-College Station, Texas, March 12, 2012

AT&T* plans to roll out 4G LTE in Bryan-College Station soon, bringing customers the latest generation of wireless network technology and faster mobile Internet speeds.

Bryan-College Station customers will see several benefits from AT&T 4G LTE, including:

  • Faster speeds. LTE technology is capable of delivering speeds faster than many other mobile Internet technologies. Customers will be able to 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 Samsung Galaxy Note™, HTC One X, 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.

“AT&T customers in Bryan-College Station can look forward to even faster mobile Internet speeds very soon, on our leading lineup of smartphones and devices,” said Chris Penrose, vice president and general manager, AT&T South Texas.  “We’re excited to bring Bryan-College Station all that 4G LTE has to offer. Our teams will be working hard across the city toward our upcoming launch.”

AT&T’s 4G Network

In addition to Bryan-College Station, AT&T 4G LTE is also coming to Naples, Fla.; Bloomington, Lafayette and Muncie, Ind.; Baton Rouge and New Orleans, La.; St. Louis, Mo; Akron, Canton and Cleveland, Ohio; and Staten Island in New York City. These launches are scheduled for April, May and into the early summer.

AT&T customers have access to the nation’s largest 4G network, covering nearly 250 million people. Even as 4G LTE expands, AT&T customers are able to enjoy widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G speeds on their compatible device as they move in and out of LTE areas. AT&T has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul. With other carriers, when you travel outside of their LTE coverage area, you’re on a much slower 3G network.

Limited 4G LTE availability in select markets. Deployment ongoing. 4G LTE device and data plan required. LTE is a trademark of ETSI. 4G speeds not available everywhere. Learn more at att.com/network.
