AT&T Turns On 4G LTE For Customers in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. - AT&T has now turned on 4G LTE for people living in Yakima. 

During the past 10 months, AT&T has launched 4G LTE throughout the state, including the greater Seattle area, Aberdeen, Anacortes, Centralia, Longview, Mount Vernon, Shelton, Port Townsend/Whidbey Island/Camano Island, Pullman, Spokane, Tacoma and the Tri-Cities area, and now the company has added Bremerton, Moses Lake and Yakima to that list. 

AT&T says it invested more than $1.8 billion in its Washington wireless and wireline networks from 2010 through 2012, and made more than 1,250 wireless network upgrades in the state of Washington during 2012. 

The phone company says 4G LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile Internet speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G, so customers can stream, download, upload and game faster than ever before. AT&T says subscribers can now expect faster response time as the LTE technology offers lower latency, which improves services like mobile gaming, two-way video calling and telemedicine.
