ATT lights up LA with LTE

Los Angeles is among the 10 metropolitan areas to get AT&T’s LTE sevice according to press releases yesterday.  San Diego, Los Angeles and the Bay Area are to be turned up.  The benefits of LTE (according to the press announcement):

  • Faster speeds. LTE technology is capable of delivering speeds faster than many other mobile broadband technologies. Customers can stream, download, upload and game faster than ever before.
  • 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.
  • Cool new devices. AT&T offers several LTE-compatible devices, including new AT&T 4G LTE smartphones and tablets.

Almost makes you want to go out and buy a Vivid or Galaxy S or Nitro or JetStream.  Almost.
