Companies mentioned in this article: AT&T Inc.

ROSEBURG, Ore., May 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* has turned on the nation's most reliable 4G LTE network** in Roseburg, Oregon, bringing customers the latest generation of wireless network technology. Watch here to see several of the benefits AT&T 4G LTE provides, including:

    --  Faster speeds. LTE technology is capable of delivering speeds faster
        than many other mobile Internet technologies***. Customers can stream,
        download, upload and game faster than ever before.
    --  Reliability. AT&T has the most reliable 4G LTE network. Based on our
        analysis of independent third party data, AT&T has the highest success
        rate for delivering mobile content across nationwide 4G LTE networks.
    --  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.

"To support the growing demand for mobile broadband, AT&T invested more than 350 million in its Oregon network during the past three years, and made 446 wireless network upgrades in the state last year alone," said George Granger, President, AT&T Oregon. "As a result, we've turned on 4G LTE in markets throughout Oregon and are now pleased to bring the latest generation of wireless network technology today to Roseburg."

AT&T's 4G Network

This expansion is part of AT&T's Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan announced in Fall 2012 to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks. Through this investment, AT&T is supporting its customers' growing desire for high-speed Internet access and new mobile, app and cloud-based services. As part of Project VIP, AT&T plans to add macro cell sites nationwide by year-end 2015, as well as deploy small cells and add Distributed Antenna Systems to increase the density of its wireless network.

Over the past six years (2008 to 2013), AT&T invested more than $140 billion into its wireless and wireline networks, when you combine capital investment and acquisitions of spectrum and wireless operations. Since 2008, AT&T has invested more capital into the U.S. economy than any other public company. In a September 2013 report, the Progressive Policy Institute ranked AT&T No. 1 on its list of U.S. "Investment Heroes."
