AT&T has expanded its 4G LTE network in Encino and has upgraded 5 mobile Internet cell sites in the area bringing more residents and businesses the latest generation of wireless network technology including faster mobile Internet speeds — improved performance and innovative new 4G LTE-compatible devices.
AT&T launched 4G LTE in the Greater Los Angeles area on January 5, 2012 and most recently expanded coverage on December 18, 2012 as part of its ongoing rollout across the market.
Several of the benefits AT&T 4G LTE provides include:
- Faster speeds. LTE technology is capable of delivering speeds faster than many other mobile Internet technologies. 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 Sony Xperia™ TL, LG Optimus G™, Samsung Galaxy S III, Motorola ATRIX™ HD, HTC One™ X, Nokia Lumia 900, Samsung Galaxy Note™ II, HTC One™ X+, Samsung ATIV smart PC and ASUS VivoTab™ RT.
- 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.
“We’ve seen positive response from customers on our 4G LTE launch, and as our recent expansion shows, we’re continuing our rollout of fast 4G LTE speeds to more areas of Encino,” said Ken McNeely, President of AT&T California.
