CAPE MAY, N.J., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Watch video on the go. Surf the wireless Internet at lightening speed. Share live video during a cell phone call. AT&T announced today these services and more are available on their ultra fast third-generation (3G) mobile broadband network in more places throughout southern New Jersey. AT&T operates the nation's fastest 3G network, according to recent data compiled by leading independent wireless research firms.
With the addition of 3G technology to more than 25 cell sites in Cumberland, Cape May and Atlantic Counties, AT&T's fastest wireless network is now available in Absecon, Cape May Courthouse, Marmora, Rio Grande, Somers Point, Vineland, and Millville. The 3G network has also been enhanced along Routes 9, 47, 49, 55, and along the Garden State Parkway.
"AT&T is committed to delivering a top notch experience every time a customer makes a call, reads an e-mail, downloads live video or sends a text message on our 3G network," said Dan Lafond, vice president and general manager for AT&T's wireless division in southern New Jersey.
Benefits of the AT&T 3G Network
Because its wireless network is based on GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) technologies, the most open and widely used wireless network platform in the world, which supports 88 percent of the people worldwide who use wireless devices, only AT&T can offer 3G data roaming in more than 60 countries, including Japan and South Korea, as well as voice calling in more than 200 countries, in addition to the company's constant 3G expansion in the U.S. Nearly all devices in AT&T's current portfolio are "world phones" that can be used around the world.
Many of AT&T's 3G devices support AT&T Video Share(SM), a first-of-its-kind service in the U.S. that enables users to share live video while carrying on a voice call -- providing a new way to share personal moments and key events beyond the capabilities of voice, text and photos.
AT&T's 3G customers can also view razor-sharp video clips through CV, an on-demand streaming video service that offers a comprehensive library of mobile video content from CNN, FOX News, ABC Mobile, CBS Mobile, NBC, ESPN, The Weather Channel, MTV, VH1, Comedy Central, "American Idol," HBO Mobile and more.
The AT&T 3G network is now available in 320 U.S. major metropolitan areas. The company will deliver 3G service to nearly 350 leading U.S. metro areas by the end of 2008.
