AT&T has been named the fastest 4G LTE network in Kansas City in a newly published magazine study. But that’s just part of the story. PC Magazine’s Fastest Mobile Networks 2013 study also found that the company’s wireless Internet delivers America’s fastest 4G LTE speeds – as well as the fastest in every region from coast to coast.
Speed tests were performed in a total of 30 markets and six U.S. regions: Northeast, Southeast, North-Central, South-Central, Northwest and Southwest. Besides leading the pack nationally and regionally, AT&T’s network also ranked first locally – in Kansas City and 23 additional markets across the nation.
"The most important thing about a wireless network is how well it performs where you live and work," said Sascha Segan, PCMag.com's lead analyst for mobile. "AT&T's speedy results in Kansas City make its 4G LTE network a great choice for people who live there."
“This PC Magazine honor is another important third-party validation of our network quality,” said John Sondag, president of AT&T Missouri. “We’ve listened to our customers, we’ve invested heavily and worked hard, and today’s news again validates that AT&T offers an outstanding network, device portfolio and value.”
Several other third-party testing firms also have honored the AT&T 4G LTE network for speed and performance. AT&T 4G LTE is available in 278 markets and covers more than 200 million people. Improving the wireless network is a top priority for AT&T. Over the last five years, AT&T invested nearly $98 billion into operations, more than any other public company in the U.S.
AT&T has built the nation’s largest 4G network, and its customers are able to enjoy widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G speeds on their compatible device as they move in and out of LTE areas on AT&T 4G HSPA+. With some competitors, smartphone customers may fall back to slower 3G technologies when outside of LTE coverage.
The 24 markets where AT&T finished first were Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Memphis, Miami, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Raleigh, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa and Tucson.
