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!

Are you an AT&T customers with an LTE-enabled device in one of the areas that received 4G LTE coverage? Are you enjoying the new blazing fast speeds over the standard HSPA+ connection? Let us know in the comments!
