COLUMBUS, Ga. -- Watch video on the go. Surf the wireless Internet at lightning speed. Share live video during a wireless call. These are just a few of the things you can do with AT&T's third-generation (3G) wireless service, now available in Columbus. Today, AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) announced the launch of the company's 3G wireless network in Columbus, offering consumers and businesses broadband-like speed and access to the latest interactive voice, video and data applications. AT&T has enhanced the technology at 40 existing cell sites across the Columbus area, and the company will add 12 new cells sites in the Columbus/Ft. Benning area this year, while continuing to expand its 3G network footprint.

AT&T's 3G network opens the door to a new era of mobile services, devices and feature-rich audio and video content, including the simultaneous sharing of voice and live video. This rapidly expanding network, combined with an ever-expanding lineup of 3G devices -- from the Samsung a737 to the LG Vu(TM) -- gives AT&T customers in Columbus the best in mobile communications.

"The city of Columbus is experiencing impressive growth, and we are growing our local network to meet this increased demand for high-quality wireless service," said Steve Sitton, president of AT&T's wireless operations in the Southeast. "Our goal is to ensure that AT&T customers in Columbus have the very best wireless experience possible -- which includes unmatched coverage and quality of service. AT&T 3G delivers exceptional quality and speed when customers are on the move. They can view videos from their favorite shows, play games, download music, check the stock market or just read and write e-mail as if they were at home or in the office."
