LAKE PLACID/SARANAC LAKE, N.Y., Feb., 13, 2013 Speed makes a difference when youre connecting to the mobile Internet to access the web, social media and apps through smartphones and other networked devices. Through ongoing investment in mobile Internet network, AT&T* is delivering fast 4G speeds for local customers and businesses in Lake Placid and Saranac Lake. We welcome AT&Ts continued investment in its network in the North Country, said NYS Senator Betty Little (R-Queensbury). Fast mobile internet coverage for residents, local businesses and visitors is vital to the regions economic health. AT&T has the nations largest 4G network, covering more than 285 million people and now 3,000 more 4G cities and towns than Verizon.** Nationally, AT&Ts 4G HSPA+ network with enhanced backhaul delivers download speeds of approximately 2-6 Mbps, up to four times faster than 3G.*** AT&Ts history of and commitment to network upgrades in Adirondack Park means we can deliver 4G speeds that competitors 3G networks cant match, which is very important to mobile Internet customers, said Marissa Shorenstein, president New York, AT&T, With the rapid growth of mobile devices and wireless data usage, 4G speeds are essential for customers who want and need their apps and information faster. Some carriers have opted for a strategy to jump straight to 4G LTE without upgrading the speeds on their current network, which means in areas without LTE their customers have a slower 3G experience. By deploying two 4G technologies that work together for our customers LTE and HSPA+ -- AT&T customers have access to consistently fast 4G speeds in and out of 4G LTE areas.

Additional network enhancements made in Adirondack Park this year by AT&T include new cell sites expanding mobile Internet coverage in areas of North Creek, Schroon Lake, and Hadley/Lake Luzerne. AT&T recently announced Project Velocity IP, its strategic plan to invest $14 billion over the next three years to expand its wireless and wireline IP broadband networks. As part of Project Velocity IP, AT&Ts 4G LTE network is expected expand to cover 300 million people by year-end 2014, and its wireline IP network is expected to extend to 57M customer locations, covering 75% of locations in AT&Ts wireline service area by YE 2015.
