AT&T 4G LTE Goes Live in Anchorage

4G is heating up in a very cold place. Customers of AT&T are being told that they can now benefit from ultra-fast mobile Internet on the latest LTE devices.

Over the weekend, AT&T flipped the switch on its 4G LTE network in Anchorage, Alaska bringing customers the latest generation of wireless network technology.

The benefits AT&T 4G LTE – according to the carrier – 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 Motorola ATRIX HD, Sony Xperia ion, 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.

“We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Anchorage responds to what customers want from their mobile experience – more, faster, on the best devices,” said Scott Meyers, Director of Sales for AT&T Mobility in Alaska.
