AT&T* has expanded its 4G LTE network in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, bringing more customers the latest generation of wireless network technology. Today's expansion extends AT&T's 4G LTE network already available in western Nassau to more consumers and businesses across Long Island and is part of AT&T's ongoing rollout across the New York metropolitan area.
AT&T 4G LTE coverage now includes parts of Jericho, East Meadow, Plainview, Melville, Levittown, North Bellmore, Bellmore, Wantagh, Seaford, Farmingdale, Amityville, North Amityville, Copiague, Lindenhurst, North Lindenhurst, East Massapequa, West Babylon, Deer Park, Wheatly Heights, West Islip and North Bay Shore and extends along the Long Island Expressway, Northern State Parkway, Wantagh Parkway, Hempstead Turnpike, Sunrise Highway, Route 110 and Southern State Parkway.
"We've seen positive response from customers on our 4G LTE launch, and as today's expansion shows, we're continuing our rollout of fast 4G LTE speeds to more areas of Long Island," said Marissa Shorenstein, president, AT&T New York.
Watch here to see several of the benefits AT&T 4G LTE provides, including:
- 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.
- 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.
