AT&T announced last week that its 4G LTE network has reached more than 300 million Americans, months ahead of the year end 2014 target under the Project VIP plan. According to AT&T, since the launch of project VIP plan in November 2012, wireless data traffic on AT&T’s nationwide network has increased 2.5 times.
AT&T said that it has invested more than $140 billion into its wireless and wireline networks over the past six years (2008 to 2013), including acquisitions of spectrum and wireless operations.
"The strong performance we saw in our mobility business in the second quarter is continuing, not only because of our new service and device plans, but because more customers can get it all on a fast, reliable 4G LTE network that now covers more than 300 million Americans. Great service and strong customer loyalty begin with having a great mobile network for customers where they live. That’s our number one priority and that’s why our mobile business is hitting on all cylinders.”
