DURING 2013 Winter X Games

Company Expands Wireless Network Capacity for Customers

ASPEN, Colo. - January 16, 2013 — As thousands of people converge on Aspen for the 2013 Winter X Games featuring 200 of the world’s best snow sports athletes, AT&T is boosting network capacity to help its customers have a great wireless experience.

The company will deploy a cell site on wheels (COW) to accommodate expected increased wireless network demands from high concentrations of smartphone users at this premier actions sports event. The augmentation will help improve reliability and fast data speeds as the event runs through January 27.

"The Winter X Games generate memorable experiences that our customers will want to share with friends and family through text messages, photos, videos, social media and calls from their mobile devices,” said Marty Clark, acting vice president and general manager, AT&T Rocky Mountain region. "This is the second year that we’ve deployed a team of network engineers to help provide great connectivity, solid coverage and fast speeds.”

The temporary enhancement is part of AT&T’s ongoing efforts to prepare for and provide the best possible mobile experience during special events.

AT&T is the only U.S. service provider to deploy two compatible 4G technologies to deliver more speed to more smartphone customers.

AT&T’s focus to deliver the best possible mobile Internet experience goes beyond 4G and DAS to embrace additional connection technologies. AT&T operates the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network including more than 30,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots at popular restaurants, hotels, bookstores and retailers across the country. Most AT&T smartphone customers get access to our entire national Wi-Fi network at no additional cost, and Wi-Fi usage doesn’t count against customers’ monthly wireless data plans.

Over the past five years, AT&T invested more than $115billion into operations and into acquiring spectrum and other assets that have enhanced our wireless and wired networks. Since 2007, AT&T has invested more capital into the U.S. economy than any other publiccompany. In a July 2012 report, the Progressive Policy Institute ranked AT&T No. 1 on its list of U.S. "Investment Heroes.”
