AT&T has turned on its 4G LTE network in Worcester and a number of surrounding communities, including Northborough, bringing customers the latest generation of wireless network technology. Several of the benefits AT&T 4G LTE provides include:
· Faster speeds. LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile Internet speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. 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 HTC One™ X, Samsung Focus® 2, 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.
In addition to Worcester, AT&T turned on its 4G LTE network in parts of nearby Auburn, Boylston, Grafton, Holden, Leicester, Millbury, Oxford, Northborough, North Oxford, Paxton, Shrewsbury, Westborough and West Boylston.
“We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in the Worcester area responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, on the best devices,” said Steve Krom, vice president and general manager, AT&T New England.
