DALLAS, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – AT&T* 4G LTE speeds outpaced the competition, according to recent third-party speed tests by PCWorld. Testing in 13 cities showed that AT&T’s 4G network delivered faster download speeds than any other carrier tested.
“In our tests, AT&T’s new LTE network pumped out the fastest speeds of any 4G provider, while its HSPA+ service performed very well against comparable services,” said Mark Sullivan, senior editor, PCWorld. “The two services combined in one of AT&T’s new 4G phones — which use LTE service backed up by HSPA+ — make a pretty compelling package when it comes to overall speed.”
AT&T customers have access to the nation’s largest 4G network, covering nearly 250 million people. AT&T customers are able to enjoy widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G speeds on their compatible device as they move in and out of LTE areas because AT&T has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul.
