AT&T promoting 4G LTE advances

AT&T Inc. officials stopped in St. Joseph on Thursday to tout the company’s latest developments in the world of high-speed wireless devices.

Its St. Joseph store at The Shoppes at North Village served as the setting to announce the launch of its 4G LTE network in the area.

Nancy Garvey, vice president/general manager for AT&T Mobility in Missouri and Kansas, said the company aims to create an even faster wireless capability and improved voice call quality for 2014.

“We’re buying more spectrum” or airwaves, Ms. Garvey said.

She also spent time at the store displaying and explaining devices such as the new Samsung Galaxy Gear.
