Owners with AT&T smartphones compatible with the speedy 4G LTE data network can finally start using that feature in Utah.
The cell phone carrier finally turned on its 4G LTE network Wednesday in Provo and Orem only. The network is still expected to launch in Salt Lake City by "the end of the year," according to a company spokeswoman. It is unknown when the service will be available in Ogden.
4G LTE is the latest and fastest data network available for cell phones and other mobile devices such as computer tablets and is capable of speeds up to 10 times faster than the older 3G networks. AT&T is the second carrier to turn on 4G service in Utah. Verizon's LTE network has been on for more than a year and covers much of northern Utah down to Utah County.
