AT&T customers have access to the nation’s largest 4G network, covering 285 million people. AT&T has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul. That means AT&T customers are able to enjoy a widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G experience on their compatible device as they move in and out of LTE areas.**** With other carriers, when you travel outside of their LTE coverage area, you may be on a much slower 3G network.
