We are closing out the year just the way we started it: connecting people to opportunity. From connecting technology that puts us on the path to 5G, connecting students to mentors, or even connecting Hoosiers to cyber security resources, at its core, this is what all of us at AT&T do every day. I am so proud of what we have accomplished this year in and as I look forward to 2018 I am excited for what is to come. But before we get to January, I want to wish all of you, your family and your friends a happy holiday season and a happy New Year!

Indiana scores another first in the country
In November, AT&T announced that it has deployed Commercial LTE-Licensed Assisted Access (LTE-LAA) technologies in select parts of downtown Indianapolis. And we plan to expand LTE-LAA coverage in more areas of downtown Indianapolis by the end of the year.
This technology is another step in our evolution to 5G. We’re working closely with the City of Indianapolis to deploy the upgrades needed to support future technologies, like 5G.
We’re excited to be the first carrier to commercially deploy LTE-LAA technology for our customers in parts of Indianapolis. Demand continues to grow at a rapid pace on our network. That’s why offering customers the latest technologies and increased wireless capacity by combining licensed and unlicensed spectrum is an important milestone.
LAA is expected to play a key role as we aim to reach theoretical peak speeds of up to 1gigabit per second (Gbps). In previous field tests of this technology, we were one of the first carriers to observe actual peak wireless speeds of 979 megabits per second (Mbps).
