AT&T 4G LTE speeds into Grand Rapids with 10 times faster mobile broadband
If AT&T users’ iOS devices display “LTE” at the top, they’re connected to the carrier’s new 4G LTE mobile network.

AT&T is spreading 4G LTE throughout Michigan.

AT&T announced this week that its 4G LTE wireless network is now available in Kalamazoo and will be available this summer in Muskegon and Lansing.

AT&T rolled out its 4G LTE service to the Grand Rapids market late last year.

LTE, or long term evolution, is a wireless broadband technology that delivers mobile Internet service to users’ devices about 10 times faster than 3G, allowing users to download, upload, stream and game with more speed, according to AT&T.

AT&T operates one of the nation’s largest 4G networks, with 288 million users.

"We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Kalamazoo responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster on the best devices," said Jim Murray, president of AT&T Michigan.

Murray added that AT&T's teams will be "working hard" toward 4G LTE rollouts in Muskegon and Lansing, where customers can "look forward to even faster speeds by the end of the summer."
