AT&T trails Verizon by a large margin in the coverage department. However, late last year, we passed along the results of a study that showed AT&T's LTE service to be faster than Verizon's LTE network. As for its advantages over 3G service besides speed, AT&T's LTE service also offers lower latency times, which is the time it takes for information to move data through a pipeline. The lower latency times makes playing video games over a mobile device more enjoyable while improving the functionality of other applications like video chat. AT&T also notes that LTE is more efficient than older technologies, allowing for more space to be available to carry more data. And AT&T also notes that bringing LTE service to an area means that those who will be in the range of AT&T's LTE signal will be able to choose from some cool new 4G phones, like the previously mentioned Samsung GALAXY Note LTE.
