New Distributed Antenna System, Which is Part of AT&T’s Ongoing Project VIP
Investment Plan, Provides Additional Wireless Capacity for Customers
WASHINGTON, DC, November 5, 2013 
 As part of its continuing network investment to support growing demand for advanced wireless devices and services,  AT&T* has expanded its mobile Internet coverage at a well-known sports and events arena in the Chinatown area of Washington, DC by completing the installation of a new Distributed Antenna System (DAS) to enhance the customer experience throughout the facility. Enhanced coverage in the concourse area will allow customers to talk, text and tweet before they arrive at their seats, as well as during the main event.  A DAS installation consists of multiple strategically-
placed antennas that distribute AT&T’s 
wireless network coverage throughout the arena, providing for more efficient management of wireless capacity in heavily-trafficked areas. DAS has the ability to provide enhanced wireless coverage to customers in indoor or outdoor spaces where geographical limitations
 terrain, building construction, etc.
 or crowd density might otherwise prevent an optimal wireless experience. The Chinatown
DAS installation is part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three
-year investment plan announced last fall to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks. Through this investment,
 AT&T is supporting its customers’ growing
desire for high-speed Internet access and new mobile, app and cloud-based services. As part of Project VIP, AT&T plans to add more than 1,000 DAS nationwide by year-end 2015, as well as more than 10,000 macro cell sites, and deploy more than 40,000 small cells, to increase the density of its wireless network.
―We want our customers to have a great network experience whatever they’re doing –
whether that’s
making a call, sending a photo, checking e-mail, downloading apps, or surfing the Internet
 said J. Michael Schweder, president of AT&T Mid-Atlantic.
―We’re committed to our investment in the local
wireless network, and providing enhanced wireless coverage at major sports and entertainment venues
is just one way that we’re investing in
Washington, DC
 DAS technology helps improve the mobile Internet experience by shortening the distance a request must travel. The additional capacity also is expected to help improve call reliability, boost data traffic capacity and enable more consistent network access to help customers make the most of their   AT&T devices. These investments help to ensure that DC residents continue to enjoy the best possible experience over the AT&T network, whether at home, at work or on the go.
The great performance of AT&T’s 4G
LTE network continues to be validated:
 AT&T has the fastest and now most reliable 4G LTE network.** According to independent third-party data, AT&T has the highest success rate for delivering mobile content across nationwide 4G LTE networks.
 Meanwhile, our 4G LTE service was recognized as having faster average download and upload speeds than any of our competitors in
’s most recent 20
-market speed tests
 the second consecutive year that AT&T has ranked 1st overall.
also ranked AT&T’s as the fastest combination of 3G and 4G services in
the 20 cities it tested.***
 And AT&T was named America’s fastest 4G LTE network in
PC Magazine’s
 2013 Fastest Mobile Networks 30-market study
 sweeping the top rankings in all six U.S. regions from coast to coast: Northeast, Southeast, North-Central, South-Central, Northwest and Southwest.****  Across the greater Washington, DC area,
 AT&T’s 2013 inv
estments have resulted in expansion and enhancement of our 4G LTE network, which provides ultra-fast speeds. AT&T 4G LTE is now available in DC as well as Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware. Nationwide, more than 225 million Americans have access to AT&T 4G LTE service. By year-end 2013, AT&T expects to cover nearly 270 million people and 400 markets with its 4G LTE network.
 AT&T’s focus to deliver the best possible mobile Internet experience goes beyond 4G to embrace
additional connection technologies. AT&T operates 
-Fi network****** including more than 32,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots at popular restaurants, hotels, bookstores and retailers, and provides access to more than 402,000 hotspots globally through roaming agreements. Most AT&T smartphone customers get access to our entire national Wi-Fi network at no additional cost, and Wi-Fi
usage doesn’t count
against customers’ monthly wireless data plans.
 Over the past five years, AT&T invested nearly $98 billion into its wireless and wireline networks across the country. Since 2008, AT&T has invested more capital into the U.S. economy than any other public company. In a July 2012 report, the Progressive Policy Institute ranked AT&T No. 1 on its list of U.S.
