DURANT, Okla., July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* has turned on the nation's fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network** in Durant, bringing customers the latest generation of wireless network technology.
"AT&T's continued investment in our community means we now have access to the fastest wireless technology available," said Sen. Josh Brecheen. "This is great news for Durant-area businesses and residents."
Watch here to see several of the benefits AT&T 4G LTE provides, including:
"AT&T's 4G LTE service will allow for continued business growth in our community," said Rep. Dustin Roberts. "It's great to receive AT&T's investment here, and I know our citizens are already enjoying the benefits of this upgrade and will continue to do so for years to come."
"We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Durant responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, reliably, on the best devices," said Bryan Gonterman, State President for AT&T Oklahoma.
AT&T's 4G Network
AT&T's innovation and investment has resulted in the nation's largest 4G network with ultra-fast speeds and a more consistent user experience.
The great performance of AT&T's fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network continues to be validated by independent third-party testing:
Even as AT&T continues to expand its 4G LTE coverage, customers can get 4G speeds outside of 4G LTE areas on our 4G HSPA+ network, unlike some competitors, where smartphone customers may 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 to embrace additional connection technologies. AT&T operates the nation's largest Wi-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.
AT&T also is a leading developer of Distributed Antenna Systems, which utilize multiple small antennas to maximize coverage and speed within stadiums, convention centers, office buildings, hotels and other areas where traditional coverage methods are challenging.
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. "Investment Heroes."
