    I ported my lines to Verizon a couple years ago. LTE is nice. But I’d go back to a landline before I’d go back to AT&T.

    puts a hotspot in alaska, but not in michigan… GENIUS!!@)%&)#(*^%@)(*&% silly ATT i still love/hate you HURRY UP WITH MAH LTE

    • Believe it or not, AT&T coverage was better in Alaska than Oakland County.

  • AT&T reps tell me my area(Great Falls/North central Montana) is set up for 4G LTE, but it won’t be activated until sometime next year. At least we have 4G for now.

  • When are they going to get around to WV? Seeing as it has the majority carrier coverage here.

    For transmitting my graphics work in Atlanta, I have my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (on AT&T’s 4G LTE for speed, mind you). Nowadays you’ve got to have the big data speeds to go mobile with graphics work.
