Get ready to experience 4G LTE speeds on all your Wi-Fi enabled devices with the AT&T Mobile Hotspot Elevate 4G, which provides fast mobile broadband Internet connectivity to up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices--from a laptop or tablet to a gaming console or another phone. You'll be able to browse the web, e-mail, download presentations, and more when you're out and about without skipping a beat--no matter if you are on 4G LTE or AT&T's nationwide HSPA+ network.
With no software to install and a 1.77-inch LCD screen to guide you, setup is fast and intuitive. Just power it up and connect your laptop using the Wi-Fi network name and security key displayed on the screen. Easily view device and connection status on the LCD, including battery status, signal strength, and data usage.
The Elevate 4G also includes a microSD memory card slot that's compatible with optional cards up to 32 GB in size, and you can receive text messages (viewable via a web user interface; sending text messages not supported). And it can help you stay connected even when travelling the globe, allowing you to connect to international 3G networks in over 200 countries (international roaming rates apply outside the U.S., Puerto Rico, and U.S.V.I.).

AT&T 4G LTE Network
AT&T's 4G LTE network allows for quicker access, smoother media streaming, and faster web experiences. LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile broadband speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Additionally, LTE technology offers a faster response time due to lower latency--the processing time it takes to move data through a network--vastly speeding download times for web pages as well as improving services such as mobile gaming and two-way video calling.
By the end of 2011, AT&T plans to launch its 4G LTE network in 15 major metropolitan areas, covering at least 70 million Americans. Coverage will continue to expand in the next few years and is planned to be largely complete by the end of 2013.
And when combined with 4G HSPA+ technology, AT&T is capable of delivering a quicker, more consistent mobile broadband experience than ever before. AT&T has deployed HSPA+ to virtually 100 percent of its mobile broadband network, which enables 4G speeds when combined with enhanced backhaul (via Ethernet or fiber). Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.

Advanced wireless technology capable of increasing AT&T's already-fast network speeds. Now in select markets with deployment ongoing.
| || HSPA+ = High Speed Packet Access |
Paired with enhanced backhaul--the accelerated pipeline between our network backbone and cell towers across the country--this technology boosts network performance.
