AT&T 4G LTE available in Ada

Ada —

Company officials say AT&T has turned on the nation’s fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network in Ada, 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. Susan Paddack. “This is great news for businesses and residents who want to stay connected.”

“LTE technology is capable of delivering speeds faster than many other mobile Internet technologies,” according to a company press release. “Customers can stream, download, upload and game faster than ever before,” said Bryan Gonterman, state president for AT&T Oklahoma.

Company officials say  according to independent third-party data, AT&T has the highest success rate for delivering mobile content across nationwide 4G LTE networks. 

AT&T offers several LTE-compatible devices, including new AT&T 4G LTE smart phones and tablets. 

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. 

“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,” Gonterman said. 

“AT&T’s 4G LTE service will allow for continued business growth in our community,” said Rep. Todd Thomsen. “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 Ada responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, reliably, on the best devices,” Gonterman said.
