AT&T expands 4G LTE network in Hartford and New Haven

Dec 31, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- AT&T Inc., a provider of wireless communications, local exchange services and long-distance services, has expanded its 4G LTE network in Hartford, and New Haven.

LTE technology is capable of delivering faster mobile internet speeds. AT&T offers several LTE-compatible devices, including new AT&T 4G LTE smartphones and tablets, such as the Sony Xperia TL, LG Optimus G, Samsung Galaxy S III, Motorola ATRIX HD, HTC One X, Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung Galaxy Note II, HTC One X+, Samsung ATIV smart PC and ASUS VivoTab RT, the company said.

LTE technology offers lower latency, or the processing time it takes to move data through a network. Lower latency helps to improve services like mobile gaming, two-way video calling and telemedicine. 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 company added.

"We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Hartford responds to what customers want from their mobile experience - more, faster, on the best devices," said Rodney Smith, President of AT&T Connecticut.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.
