AT&T 4G LTE Available in Searcy

Customers to benefit from nation’s fastest 4G LTE network on the latest devices

Searcy, Arkansas, July 02, 2013

AT&T* has turned on the nation’s fastest 4G LTE network** in Searcy, bringing customers the latest generation of wireless network technology. AT&T’s 4G LTE coverage in the Searcy area extends to parts of Beebe, Berryhill, El Paso, Garner, Heber Springs, Judsonia and Kensett.

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.
  • 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, 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.

“Thank you AT&T for investing in our community,” said Sen. Jonathan Dismang. “The new LTE network will bring greater speed and better reliability. With more and more people relying on smartphones and tablets to stay connected, we welcome the network upgrade.”

“We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in the Searcy area responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, on the best devices,” said Ed Drilling, president of AT&T Arkansas. “AT&T invested more than $700 million in our Arkansas wireless and wireline networks over the past four years with a focus on improving the overall performance of our networks.”
