AT&T Inc. has added three new 4G LTE markets Wednesday and expanded the faster data service in three more areas. The new markets are:

  • Athens, Ohio
  • Sebring, Fla.
  • Dyersburg-Ripley, Tenn.
And these are the districts that get expanded service:

  • Mobile, Ala. expansion (Baldwin County)
  • Toledo, Ohio expansion (Bowling Green)

re: AT&T Adds More 4G LTE
FYI,I never did get much of an answer about why AT&T's network is faster than Verizons.They're working with the same 2x10MHz channels as VRZN. Seems to me that it might have a later generation of technology onboard and a slight edge in antenna technology.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
