AT&T LTE going live in New York City late next month?Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
AT&T has never said exactly when it'll be flipping the switch on its 4G LTE network, only giving a vague "mid-2011" launch window. If a new rumor holds true, though, we could be just a hair over a month away from it all going down. A "trusted source" speaking with IntoMobile is claiming that AT&T's LTE network will be going live in New York City on Thursday, June 30th, with a Los Angeles launch to follow nearly a month later on July 24th.
Despite the fact that we'll probably only see LTE USB modems and similar devices launch alongside AT&T's LTE network, it'll still be exciting to see another carrier roll out an LTE network. This is especially true since it'll be AT&T that's rolling it out, a carrier that's been catching a lot of flak lately for, as my buddy Evan put it, "ruining 4G." We'll be keeping a close eye on this situation in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
