celltowerAT&T has turned on its 4G LTE network in the Gulfport and Biloxi area, bringing customers the latest generation of wireless network technology.

Benefits include:

• LTE technology is capable of delivering speeds faster than many other mobile Internet technologies. Customers can stream, download, upload and games faster than ever before.

• LTE-compatible devices, including new AT&T 4G LTE smartphones 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 a request is sent. 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.

“Demand for wireless bandwidth is growing rapidly, and we want to meet that demand for our customers,” said Mike Walker, executive director, AT&T Mississippi. “The environment our elected officials have created allows us to continue to invest in the technology of the future.”
