CHARLESTON, W.Va. - AT&T announced Wednesday it has activated its high-speed, 4G LTE wireless network coverage Huntington.
The company announced in early April it planned to roll out 4G LTE coverage in Morgantown and Huntington by the summer. The Morgantown network was brought online last month.
The cities are the first in West Virginia covered by an AT&T 4G LTE data network, which offers download and mobile browsing speeds 10 times faster than older 3G networks.
The new LTE network will allow customers stream, download and upload data at faster speeds on 4G LTE-compatible smartphones, tablets and devices.
Morgantown and Huntington were added as part of a nationwide expansion into 77 more cities this summer.
While AT&T has the largest regular 4G data network in the country, its number of 4G LTE sites is less than competitor Verizon.
Verizon already offers 4G LTE coverage in eight West Virginia cities, including Charleston, Huntington, Beckley and Morgantown.
