AT&T spreads its LTE network to Stephenville, Texas
AT&T has broadened its 4G network coverage across Texas, expanding the availability of its LTE signal to the area of Stephenville, TX. This is part of the company's three-year Project Velocity IP (VIP) investment plan, whose purpose is to improve and enhance both the IP broadband and 4G LTE networks across the country. Texas is one of AT&T's key service areas in the USA. The company claims that it provides the fastest and most reliable mobile data service across the 'Lone Star State'.
"We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Stephenville responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, reliable, and on the best devices," said Hardmon Williams, AT&T Vice-President/General Manager North Texas.

As a part of the VIP investment plan, AT&T will also deploy nearly 10,000 new macro cell sites and more than 40,000 smaller ones all over the USA by the end of 2015. The telecommunication giant will add more than 1,000 new Distributed Antenna Systems, which are aimed to increase the coverage of AT&T's wireless network by utilizing “multiple small antennas to maximize coverage and speed within stadiums, convention centers, office buildings, hotels and other areas where traditional coverage methods are challenging“. This Wi-Fi network consists of more than 32,000 Hot Spots, which are placed at various public places across the country and can be accessed free of charge by AT&T's customers.

In 2013, AT&T has expanded the coverage of its LTE network to more than 30 new locations in Texas, some of which are Austin, Beaumont, Corsicana, Dallas-Fort Worth, El Paso, Houston, Jacksonville, Lubbock, Odessa, Palestine, Paris, San Antonio, Wichita Falls, etc.

On the whole, AT&T has invested more than $1 billion in its wired and wireless networks in Texas during 2013. Most of these funds were to create fiber-optic connections between nearly 600 office buildings and 24,200 business customer locations across the region.
"Fast, reliable connectivity is essential to both quality of life and competitiveness at work," said Dave Nichols, AT&T Texas State President. "No one understands that better than we do, and no one is doing more than AT&T to mobilize a world that works for people in Texas. With initiatives like Project Velocity IP, we're working to ensure that Texas consumers and businesses remain at the leading edge of broadband services."

In 2013, AT&T has expanded the coverage of its LTE network to more than 30 new locations in Texas, some of which are Austin, Beaumont, Corsicana, Dallas-Fort Worth, El Paso, Houston, Jacksonville,Lubbock,Odessa, Palestine, Paris, San Antonio, Wichita Falls, etc.

AT&T will always be the best........ in my opinion they caught up to Verizon towers in 2012, all the stuff they did in 2013 were icing on the cake and from reading this article now no one should have a complaint, well to be honest the only people who complain about AT&T are people who had it in the past and had bad service...... this is not the past I do not see any network competing with them once they drop their price closer to sprint and tmobile

Haha well I use MetroPCS in the Dallas area now, but what I meant was I used to live there a long time ago. I moved from Stephenville mid-2006, and there wasn't LTE at the time so I can't say about the reception there, but service on Metro here in the area is pretty good most of the time.
