The nation’s largest 4G network just got larger for customers in Dunmor and Lewisburg. AT&T has activated two new 4G mobile Internet cell sites in Dunmor and Lewisburg that will enhance coverage for area residents and businesses and provide speeds up to four times faster than 3G.**

"Investments in mobile Internet technologies not only help our communities’ quality of life, but also encourage economic growth for small employers, high-tech manufacturing, health care, and perhaps most importantly, education,” said Senator Whitney Westerfield. “These investments are especially important to our people and businesses in Logan County who are working hard to build our local economy, as well as keep in touch with families and friends anywhere."

“The wireless networks we use every day are becoming as important to our economy and quality of life as the roads, bridges and railroads we have depended on for so long,” said Representative Martha Jane King. “The upgrade to 4G, giving us voice and wireless broadband service at the same time, helps our established businesses, supports and advances education, and promotes economic growth in Logan and Todd Counties. I appreciate AT&T’s continuing investment in our community.”

AT&T customers have access to the nation’s largest 4G network, covering more than 292 million people. The 4G expansion is part of AT&T’s continuing network investment to support the growing demand for mobile devices, apps and faster mobile Internet speeds.

“Demand for wireless speed is growing rapidly, and we are excited to bring these super-fast speeds to residents and businesses in Dunmor and Lewisburg,” said Sim Davenport, regional director, external affairs, AT&T Kentucky. “As more and more residents of Logan County rely on their mobile devices for information and connectivity, they must have faster connections.”

AT&T has deployed two compatible 4G technologies to deliver more speed to more smartphone customers, which means AT&T customers can get 4G speeds on 4G HSPA+, unlike some competitors, where smartphone customers may fall back to slower 3G technologies when outside of LTE coverage.

Over the past five years, AT&T invested nearly $98 billion into its operations across the country. Since 2008, AT&T has invested more capital into the U.S. economy than any other public company. In a July 2012 report, the Progressive Policy Institute ranked AT&T No. 1 on its list of U.S. “Investment Heroes.”
