New Cell Site Activated as Part of Ongoing AT&T Investment in Local Wireless Network WASHINGTON, DC, JAN. 4, 2013 — The nation’s largest 4G network just got larger for customers living in and visiting Washington, DC. AT&T* has activated a new 4G mobile Internet cell site near the zoo, located in the city’s Woodley Park neighborhood, that will enhance coverage for area residents, businesses and visitors and provide speeds up to four times faster than 3G.** AT&T customers have access to the nation’s largest 4G network, covering more than 285 million people and now 3,000 more 4G cities and towns than Verizon.*** The 4G expansion is part of AT&T’s continuing network investment to support the growing demand for mobile devices, apps and faster mobile Internet speeds. ―Demand for wireless speed is growing rapidly, and we are excited to bring these super-fast speeds to residents and businesses in our Nation’s capital,‖ said J. Michael Schweder, president of AT&T MidAtlantic. ―Whether you are visiting the pandas or taking your kids to play at the pizza playground, we want you to stay connected and have an extraordinary experience.‖

AT&T has deployed two compatible 4G technologies to deliver more speed to more smartphone customers, which means AT&T customers can get 4G speeds on 4G HSPA+, unlike competitors, where smartphone customers fall back to slower 3G technologies when outside of LTE coverage. AT&T’s focus to deliver the best possible mobile Internet experience goes beyond 4G and DAS to embrace additional connection technologies. AT&T operates the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network****

including more than 31,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots at popular restaurants, hotels, bookstores and retailers across the country. 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 more than $115 billion into operations and into acquiring spectrum and other assets that have enhanced our wireless and wired networks. Since 2007, 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. ―Investment Heroes.‖
