AT&T’s announced that addition of two new markets for their growing 4G LTE network. Waco, Texas and Fayetteville Arkansas (which includes “Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers, Bentonville and a number of surrounding communities”) will get a taste of the supercharged data network starting today. AT&T Arkansas president Ed Drilling had the following to say regarding the impact of 4G LTE on his region:
“Expansion of high-speed mobile Internet access across Northwest Arkansas is like building a bridge to the future,” said state Representative Uvalde Lindsey. “It will help connect the best of what communities like Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers and Bentonville have to offer to economic opportunities across the globe. It will encourage investment. It will help create jobs. I am very pleased AT&T has made such a significant investment in our communities.”
Meanwhile, AT&T Texas president Dave Nichols says it’s all about what customers are demanding: faster, and better.
“We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Waco responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, on the best devices,” said Dave Nichols, AT&T Texas President.
Fire up that Atrix HD, Galaxy S3, or any other LTE device you may have to see if the blazing 4G LTE icon is lit up for you. We look forward to seeing continued growth from AT&T to compete with Sprint, and to see if they can catch up to their #1 rival Verizon.
