As Verizon Wireless nears 200 markets with their 4G/LTE network, AT&T is aggressively rolling out 4G/LTE as well. AT&T announced on Wednesday that they have added Tampa, St.Petersburg and the Sarasota Bradenton areas in Florida to their 4G/LTE footprint.
AT&T touts faster speeds, faster response time, more efficient use of spectrum, and cool new devices come with the lightning fast 4G/LTE speeds.
“We continue to see demand for mobile broadband skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in the Sarasota-Bradenton…””…and Tampa-St.Petersburg area, responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, on the best devices,” said Rich Guidotti, vice president and general manager, AT&T Mobility & Consumer Markets for West, Central and North Florida.
Like rival Verizon Wireless, all of the 4G/LTE smartphone devices currently available on AT&T’s 4G/LTE network are Android devices. The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and HTC Vivid lead the pack of top tier Android smartphones capable of working on AT&T’s 4G/LTE network.
