AT&T’s 4G Network
AT&T’s innovation and investment has resulted in the nation’s largest 4G network, covering more than292 million people with ultra-fast speeds and a more consistent user experience. Our 4G LTE networkdelivered faster average download speeds than any of our competitors in
market speed tests. AT&T’s 4G LTE network delivers speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G***, as well as multipleinnovations that optimize the network for performance. Our network’s radio components are placedclose to the antenna at most cell sites, instead of inside the base station, which helps minimize power loss between the base station and antenna and, in turn, improves the performance of our 4G LTEnetwork. The network also is designed with its core elements distributed across the country, whichhelps reduce latency, or the delay when using the Internet, because your request isn’t traveling as far.Even as AT&T continues to expand its 4G LTE coverage, customers can get 4G speeds outside of 4GLTE areas on our 4G HSPA+ network, unlike some competitors, where smartphone customers may fallback to slower 3G technologies when outside of LTE coverage. AT&T’s focus to deliver the best possible mobile Internet experience goes beyond 4G to embraceadditional connection technologies. AT&T operatesthe nation’s largest Wi-Fi network**** includingmore than 32,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots at popular restaurants, hotels, bookstores and retailers andprovides access to more than 402,000 hotspots globally through roaming agreements.Most AT&Tsmartphone customers get access to our entire national Wi-Fi network at no additional cost, and Wi-Fiusage doesn’t count against customers’ monthly wireless data plans.
