Today, June 20, AT&T launched 4G LTE in Nashville and the surrounding counties. This brings internet speeds that are up to 10 times faster than 3G for AT&T customers in Davidson, Maury, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson, and Wilson counties.
Today’s announcement brings Nashville up to speed with the 40 other cities with 4G LTE. AT&T will continue to expand 4G LTE to other markets throughout the next two years. Individuals who purchased newer phones with 4G LTE will already see the impacts of this network growth where speed tests demonstrated 17 Mbps down and 9 Mbps up.
During the event, AT&T stressed the speed as being fast, very fast. After experiencing some streaming of YouTube videos over just the 4G LTE network, with absolutely no stuttering, the speed was very evident and welcomed.
Both AT&T and the government representatives expressed a partnership in bringing jobs and technology to the area. This is also a welcomed investment in the community where AT&T has invested nearly $1.3 billion in its Tennessee wireless and wireline networks since 2009. House Speaker Beth Harwell said, “Today’s announcement is proof that consumers benefit when we create policies that favor investment in our state.”
