AT&T is bringing super-speedy wireless broadband to Washington D.C., the company announced Monday.
It will light up its 4G LTE service in the capital and three other cities this Sunday, following launches in five others.
The service will be accessible on six AT&T devices. Alas, none of them are a BlackBerry or an iPhone, so many in Washington will miss out.
AT&T's 4G LTE service will deliver speeds ten times faster than the 3G speeds many smart phone users are accustomed to, according to the company.
That will give Washington a taste of the service AT&T promises to make available for 97 percent of the population if its merger with T-Mobile is approved. The Justice Department has sued to block the merger.
Verizon already offers 4G LTE service in Washington.
