AT&T 4G LTE Available in Brentwood
AT&T has turned on its 4G LTE network in Brentwood as part of AT&T's 4G LTE launch in Nashville and surrounding counties, bringing customers the latest generation of wireless network technology.
There will be an open house event on Tuesday, August 14 at 5 pm at the Brentwood AT&T store, 115 Penn Warren Drive, to announce AT&T 4G LTE services.
AT&T 4G LTE provides several benefits, including:
- Faster speeds
- Cool new devices
- Faster response time
- More efficient use of spectrum
AT&T invested nearly $1.3 billion in its Tennessee wireless and wireline networks from 2009 through 2011 with a focus on improving the company's mobile Internet coverage and overall performance of its networks.
"We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Brentwood responds to what customers want from their mobile experience - more, faster, on the best devices," said Lanie Johnson, regional director, external affairs, AT&T Tennessee.
"Consumers now have access to 4G LTE in Brentwood which is good news," said Sen. Jack Johnson.
"This is an investment in our future and in an information-driven economy, the ability for people in Brentwood to have access to the latest communications technology is critical," said Rep. Glen Casada.
"This 4G LTE announcement proves that updating our laws to keep up with changing technology pays off," said Rep. Charles Sargent.
AT&T customers have access to the nation's largest 4G network, covering more than 275 million people.
"This announcement is great news," said Cindi Parmenter, president, Brentwood Cool Springs Chamber of Commerce. "Senator Jack Johnson and Representatives Sargent and Casada work every day to create an environment that promotes this type of investment. The most modern wireless infrastructure supporting the Brentwood business community enhances all the economic and community development opportunities."
Even as 4G LTE expands, AT&T customers are able to enjoy widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G speeds on their compatible devices as they move in and out of LTE areas. AT&T has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul.
"Our Brentwood customers now have our fastest available speeds with 4G LTE, and customers across Tennessee are enjoying fast speeds on t he nation's largest 4G network," said Chris Percy, vice president and general manager of Mobility and Consumer Markets for AT&T Tennessee, Kentucky and southern Indiana.
