Looks like AT&T is joining in on the 4G LTE expansion fun this week. AT&T today announced that it's flipped the LTE switch in a few new markets today, including New Orleans, La. (both the Northshore and Southshore), Baton Rouge, La., and Naples, Fla. Along with those new cities, AT&T has also expanded its existing 4G LTE coverage in Chicago, bringing LTE service to the city's South Side and suburbs. Some of the areas included in AT&T's Chicago expansion include Hickory Hills, Palos Heights, Alsip, Country Club Hills, Oak Lawn and Evergreen Park.

Back in mid-March, AT&T named a handful of markets that'd gain LTE coverage through April, May and into the early summer. Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Naples were all part of that list, so kudos to AT&T for following through on its plans. So now we have to ask: how many of you are located in one of these markets and are riding on AT&T's 4G LTE airwaves?
