AT&T 4G LTE launches in Nashville and surrounding areas


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.


AT&T 4G LTE provides several benefits to consumers:

  • Faster speeds - LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile Internet speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Customers can stream, download, upload and game faster than ever before.
  • Cool new devices - AT&T offers several LTE-compatible devices, including new AT&T 4G LTE smartphones and tablets such as the HTC One X, Samsung Focus 2,Nokia Lumia 900, Samsung Galaxy Note, and Pantech Element tablet.
  • Faster response time - 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 you've sent the request. 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.


The ribbon cutting and press event was held at the AT&T store in Green Hills. Featured guests included: AT&T Tennessee State President, Gregg Morton, Tennessee House Speaker Beth Harwell, Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Turner, the President & CEO of the Nashville Chamber of Commerce, Ralph Schulz, as well as AT&T Sales Director Bryan Klamer.



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.”
