AT&T logoDENVER - AT&T announced it has expanded its 4G LTE network in Denver, now providing coverage to parts of Aurora, Highlands Ranch, Parker and Castle Rock.

The company launched its 4G LTE network in Denver last November.

"We've seen positive response from customers on our 4G LTE launch, and as today's expansion shows, we're continuing our rollout of fast 4G LTE speeds to more areas of Denver," said Bill Soards, AT&T-Colorado president.

AT&T said it has invested nearly $350 million in its wireless and wireline networks in the Denver area from 2010 through 2012 to enhance speeds, reliability and performance for customers.

AT&T claims the nation's largest 4G network, covering more than 292 million people.

The 4G LTE network delivers speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G and includes multiple innovations that enhance the network's performance, AT&T said.

AT&T's 4G LTE network has been ranked fastest for a second consecutive year by PCWorld/TechHive in tests in 20 U.S. markets that included Denver, the company said.

The 2013 PCWorld/TechHive speed tests showed AT&T led all carriers tested in Denver with an average upload speed of above 10mbps and an average download speed of above 15mbps, AT&T said.
