  oFaster 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.
  oCool new devices. AT&T offers several LTE-compatible devices, including
    new AT&T 4G LTE smartphones and tablets, such as the Sony Xperia™ TL, LG
    Optimus G™, Samsung Galaxy S III, Motorola ATRIX™ HD, HTC One™ X, Nokia
    Lumia 920, Samsung Galaxy Note™ II, HTC One™ X+, Samsung ATIV smart PC and
    ASUS VivoTab™ RT.
  oFaster 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.
  oMore 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 Nashua responds to what customers want from their mobile
experience-- more, faster, on the best devices," said Patricia Jacobs,
president, AT&T New England.

AT&T's 4G Network

AT&T's innovation and investment has resulted in the nation's – and New
England's – largest 4G network, covering more than 285 million people with
ultra-fast speeds and a more consistent user experience. That's coverage in
3,000 more 4G cities and towns than Verizon.** Our 4G LTE network delivered
faster average download speeds than any of our competitors in PCWorld's most
recent 13-market speed tests.

AT&T's 4G LTE network delivers speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G*** as well
as multiple innovations that optimize the network for performance. Our
network's radio components are placed close to the antenna at most cell sites,
instead of inside the base station, which helps minimize power loss between
the base station and antenna and, in turn, improves the performance of our 4G
LTE network. The network also is designed with its core elements distributed
across the country, which helps reduce latency, or the delay when using the
Internet, because your request isn't traveling as far.

Even as AT&T continues to expand its 4G LTE coverage, customers can get 4G
speeds outside of 4G LTE areas on our 4G HSPA+ network, unlike competitors,
where smartphone customers fall back to slower 3G technologies when outside of
LTE coverage.

AT&T's focus to deliver the best possible mobile Internet experience goes
beyond 4G to embrace additional connection technologies. AT&T operates the
nation's largest Wi-Fi network**** including more than 31,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot
Spots at popular restaurants, hotels, bookstores and retailers across the
country. 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 five years, AT&T invested more than $115 billion into operations
and into acquiring spectrum and other assets that have enhanced our wireless
and wired networks. Since 2007, AT&T has invested more capital into the U.S.
economy than any other public company. In a July 2012 report, the Progressive
Policy Institute ranked AT&T No. 1 on its list of U.S. "Investment Heroes."
