AT&T upgrades data service to 4G LTE in San Francisco

Data service on AT&T may be about to get faster.

The national wireless network announced Thursday that it has launched its 4G LTE network in San Francisco. The new network will offer compatible devices faster speeds, faster response times and more efficiency, the company said.

“We continue to see demand for mobile broadband skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in the San Francisco Bay Area responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, on the best devices,” said Terry Stenzel, an AT&T vice president, in a statement.

AT&T has launched the network in 26 cities nationwide.

The company is one of many mobile carriers trying to support data demand with faster speeds and more capacity. Verizon Wireless began expanding its 4G LTE network last year and Sprint announced it plans to expand its network and offer 4G LTE services to customers within the first few months of 2012.

HTC, Samsung and LG all sell phones compatible with the network.
