Aio Wireless adds support for 4G LTE; ZTE Overture is added to the lineup
Last month, AT&T introduced a new pre-paid service called Aio Wireless (for All in one, get it?) and on Thursday, expanded the service to Ft. Myers and Naples, Florida. These are two areas rich in retirees, so a premium pre-paid service might go over big in that region. Additionally, Aio now offers 4G LTE service that covers 200 million people. This allows even those who hate getting locked in for two years to experience the fast data speeds available with LTE connectivity.

AT&T has sent out an OTA update to Aio customers that updates their SIM card. The update will allow Aio users to put their SIM card into a 4G LTE enabled phone and start receiving LTE service. And to help things along, Aio introduced its first LTE enabled device, the ZTE Overture. The handset will be available in Aio stores and online and offers a 4 inch LCD screen, a 32GB capacity microSD slot, and both a rear facing 5MP camera and a front-facing snapper. The phone is powered by the Jelly Bean build of Android. That means the unit will have the smooth responsiveness of Project Butter, the timely information of Google Now, and the time saving actionable notifications.


Aio started service in Houston, Texas and in Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville and Gainesville, Florida. There are three simple rate plans ranging from $35 to $70 with each plan offering unlimited talk, text and data. Each tier of service gives the user a certain amount of 4G LTE data to use before the customer is throttled back to lower data speeds.
