DEER PARK, N.Y., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --AT&T* has expanded its 4G LTE
network in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, bringing more customers the latest
generation of wireless network technology. Today's expansion extends AT&T's 4G
LTE network already available in western Nassau to more consumers and
businesses across Long Island and is part of AT&T's ongoing rollout across the
New York metropolitan area.

AT&T 4G LTE coverage now includes parts of Jericho, East Meadow, Plainview,
Melville, Levittown, North Bellmore, Bellmore, Wantagh, Seaford, Farmingdale,
Amityville, North Amityville, Copiague, Lindenhurst, North Lindenhurst, East
Massapequa, West Babylon, Deer Park, Wheatly Heights, West Islip and North Bay
Shore and extends along the Long Island Expressway, Northern State Parkway,
Wantagh Parkway, Hempstead Turnpike, Sunrise Highway, Route 110 and Southern
State Parkway.

"We've seen positive response from customers on our 4G LTE launch, and as
today's expansion shows, we're continuing our rollout of fast 4G LTE speeds to
more areas of Long Island," said Marissa Shorenstein, president, AT&T New

Watch here to see several of the benefits AT&T 4G LTE provides, including:

  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.
  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.

AT&T's 4G Network

AT&T's innovation and investment has resulted in the nation's largest 4G
network, covering 288 million people with ultra-fast speeds and a more
consistent user experience. 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. Visit "Focus-New York" to check out AT&T's latest network

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 32,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot
Spots at popular restaurants, hotels, bookstores and retailers, and provides
access to more than 402,000 hotspots 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 five years, AT&T invested nearly $98 billion into operations.
Since 2008, 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."
