Sunday, 9/18/11,Ã‚Â ATT officially pressed the “activate” button on its new LTE (long termÃ‚Â evolution) networkÃ‚Â . According to bothÃ‚Â PCWorld.com andÃ‚Â CNET, each of which tested the new network, it is fastÃ‚Â squared. However, when comparing the test results to the speeds Verizon users currently get, keep in mind that ATT’s LTE network was virtually empty when the tests were run and Verizon’s LTE has lots of users since it has been in the marketplace for about nine months now.
Rather than give you a recap of the many articles I read about ATT’s LTE network Ã‚Â and the comparisons between it and Verizon’s LTE system, let me direct you to the two mostÃ‚Â succinct ones. The first is aÃ‚Â Q & A done byÃ‚Â Jessica Dalcourt at CNET which explains what you can and can’t do on ATT’s LTE network. The secondÃ‚Â Sascha Segan and David Peirce titledÃ‚Â “ATT vs. Verizon: LTE, Head-to-Head”.
