AT&T Wireless will launch 4G network in Athens

AT&T Wireless has announced that it will be launching its fourth-generation wireless network known as LTE (Long Term Evolution) in Athens next week. Their new smartphones will be available here starting on Sunday, November 6, the same day that the new network will launch. Athens will be the second city in Georgia and one of only nine cities across the nation to have a full LTE buildout at this time. While I do not have the technical details in front of me, this is supposed to mean that higher upload and download speeds for data transfer will be available. AT&T cites Athens' concentration of colleges as making it a priority to expand this service here. You can write comments here to let me know how it works out.
