CASPER, Wyo., June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* has turned on the nation's most reliable 4G LTE network** in Casper, 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.

"We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Casper responds to what customers want from their mobile experience -- more, faster, reliably, on the best devices," said Cheryl Riley, Director of External Affairs, AT&T Wyoming.

"Our businesses and residents rely on an advanced communication infrastructure, and we are glad that AT&T has invested in our community," said Representative Tim Stubson (Casper).

AT&T invested more than $50 million in its Wyoming wireless networks from 2011 through 2013, with a focus on expanding 4G LTE mobile Internet coverage and enhancing the overall performance of its networks.

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.

AT&T's innovation and investment have resulted in a nationwide 4G network with ultra-fast speeds and a consistent user experience. The great performance of AT&T's 4G LTE network continues to be validated by independent third-party testing:

    --  Our 4G LTE service was recognized as having faster average download and
        upload speeds than any of our competitors in PCWorld/TechHive's most
        recent 20-market speed tests -- the second consecutive year that AT&T
        has ranked first overall. PCWorld/TechHive also ranked AT&T's as the
        fastest combination of 3G and 4G services in the 20 cities it tested.***

AT&T's focus to deliver the best possible mobile Internet experience goes beyond 4G to embrace additional connection technologies. AT&T operates more than 34,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots at popular restaurants, hotels, bookstores and retailers, and provides access to more than 1 million globally through roaming agreements.**** Most AT&T smartphone customers get access to our entire national Wi-Fi network at no additional cost, and Wi-Fi usage doesn't count against customers' monthly wireless data plans.

AT&T also is a leading developer of Distributed Antenna Systems, which utilize multiple small antennas to maximize coverage and speed within stadiums, convention centers, office buildings, hotels and other areas where traditional coverage methods are challenging.

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."
