AT&T 4G LTE now available in an additional 17 markets
In an attempt to overtake Verizon Wireless in having “America’s largest 4G LTE network”, AT&T has launched 4G LTE coverage in an additional 17 markets.
If you have an LTE-enabled device on AT&T you should be seeing those blazing fast 4G LTE speeds in the areas listed below.
- Nacogdoches-Lufkin, Texas
- Athens, Texas
- Paris, Texas
- Huntsville, Texas
- Corsicana, Texas
- Gulfport and Biloxi, Mississippi
- Mountain Home, Arkansas
- Tucson, Arizona
- Lansing, Michigan
- Shreveport and Bossier, Louisiana
- Huntsville, Decatur and Cullman, Alabama
- Ocala, Florida
- Lake City, Florida
- Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania
- Henderson, North Carolina
This latest rollout brings AT&T‘s total number of LTE networks up to 207. This puts the carrier even closer to reaching its goal of 300 million points-of-presence by the end of 2013. If AT&T keeps expanding their LTE network like they are now, there’s no doubt that they’ll catch up to Verizon Wireless in no time flat.
Considering that, in most cases, AT&T has lower prices than Verizon Wireless it’ll be really great to see AT&T have as much or as nearly as much coverage as Big Red does. Though, I’m sure with T-Mobile’s new UNcarrier strategy, most people would love to see them all over the U.S. instead!
