AT&T this morning has made some announcements that should help some of its 4G LTE-hungry customers get over their case of the Mondays. The carrier has revealed that it's expanded its LTE network to several new markets in different portions of the U.S., and it's expanded existing LTE coverage in some areas as well. Here's the full rundown of markets announced by AT&T today:

New markets

  • Gainesville, Ga.
  • Wichita, Kan.
  • Buffalo, N.Y.
  • Burlington, Greensboro and Winston-Salem, N.C.
  • Corpus Christi, Texas

Expanding markets

  • Cleveland, Ohio (including parts of Brecksville, Brunswick, Elyria, Hinckley, Hudson, Mentor, Solon, Strongsville, Twinsburg and Wadsworth)
  • Charlotte, N.C. (includes Gastonia, western portions of Lake Norman, along N.C. Hwy. 3 from Kannapolis to Mooresville, along U.S. Hwy. 52 from China Grove to Mooresville, south of Salisbury to the Granite Quarry area, and along U.S. Hwy. 601 between Concord and Monroe)

That's a decently-sized 4G LTE expansion, and it's good to see that AT&T is working to grow out its coverage in existing markets while also bringing the LTE service to new parts of the country. If you call one of the above-listed areas home and have an AT&T LTE device, be sure to kick that thing's LTE feature on and give the network a go.
