New York City’s internet woes are no secret.
The city’s once-bustling internet startup ecosystem has largely been left behind, thanks in part to Google Fiber and other large ISPs.
But that doesn’t mean the city’s wireless internet isn’t a priority.
We asked some of the citys leading wireless providers about their plans for wireless, and what it means for their customers and businesses.1.
AT&T: “The AT&s service has always been a top priority for our customers and we are committed to ensuring the future of the AT&s wireless network is a successful one.”1G has been aggressively pushing its LTE service in New York, and it is launching a new version of its network in late 2018.
While AT&T will provide a LTE version of the service for the first time, it plans to launch a more robust version later in the year.
AT &Ts customer service representatives are happy to tell us that the service is “on par or better” with Google Fiber’s network.
We also hear that the company is working to upgrade its LTE infrastructure, which could make for some dramatic improvements in network performance.
AT has already begun installing 4G LTE network equipment on some of its AT<d facilities.2.

We continue to invest aggressively in our network to ensure that customers have the fastest, most reliable wireless service available.”AT<ds wireless customers in NYC will get AT>s fastest speeds.
