The city of Des Moines has an upgrade coming.

AT&T announced its plans on Wednesday to speed up its network strength to a 4G LTE signal.

Many popular smartphones and tablets are capable of running the faster speeds, provided your network offers the coverage.

By the end of 2013, AT&T said it wants Des Moines and West Des Moines to be running the faster internet speeds that it offers customers in other cities.

It currently offers 4G and 3G signal speeds in the area.
