Earlier this week, AT&T announced that its 4G LTE network now reaches more than 300 million people. This milestone was part of the company’s 2014 yearend-objectives. This increase shows a positive impact to its Project VIP plan it announced in November of 2012.
With an increase in traffic of 2.5 times since the project began, the spread of the 4G LTE availability is greatly welcomed by its customers. With new phones and new technology, the faster speeds and reliable network, AT&T customers have noticed positive impacts to their mobile, Internet experiences.
In a press release from AT&T, Randall Stephenson, AT&T chairman and CEO said, “The strong performance we saw in our mobility business in the second quarter is continuing, not only because of our new service and device plans, but because more customers can get it all on a fast, reliable 4G LTE network that now covers more than 300 million Americans. Great service and strong customer loyalty begin with having a great mobile network for customers where they live. That’s our number one priority and that’s why our mobile business is hitting on all cylinders.”
This expansion milestone will also help as AT&T customers venture out to the Fall pastime of football games and tailgating. Whether it is at pro stadiums or college and universities, AT&T continues to work on the experience their customers have over their network.
While the a better signal may be priceless to its consumers, AT&T has invested more than $140 billion into its wireless and wireline networks over the last six years. It is positive to see a company continuing to grow and improve the customer experience.
