AT&T launches 4G LTE in new markets



AT&T has recently turned 4G LTE on in Ft. Myers, Tulsa, Knoxville and Knox County, including parts of surrounding Anderson and Blount Counties and parts of Loudon, Roane and Sevier Counties.

  • Faster speeds. LTE technology is capable of delivering speeds faster than many other mobile Internet technologies. 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 Samsung Galaxy S III, Motorola ATRIX ™ HD, HTC One™ X, 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.

“We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Ft. Myers responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, on the best devices,” said AT&T Florida President Marshall Criser, lll

“I’m proud to say that Ft. Myers is among the communities enjoying this cutting-edge technology,” said Jennifer Berg, Marketing and Communications Director for the Ft. Myers Regional Partnership, "AT&T's investment in Ft. Myers builds on our reputation as a strong region for business investment.”

“We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Tulsa responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, on the best devices,” said Steve Gray, Vice President and General Manager for AT&T Oklahoma and Arkansas.

“Knox County is thriving and a great place to do business,” said Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett. “Large and small businesses have a home here, and AT&T’s investment and launch of 4G LTE  reflects their confidence in our county and adds next generation capabilities for our businesses and consumers.”
