AT&T's list of 4G LTE markets is growing again today, as the big blue operator has announced another handful of markets with new and expanded LTE coverage. Most of the cities included in today's list are sprinkled throughout the East Coast, so if you're an AT&T customer that calls that part of the country home, then you may want to shift your eyes down to a bit and peep the markets that were named by AT&T earlier this morning:

New markets

  • Harrison, Ark. (includes Harrison, Eureka Springs, Alpena, Bellafonte, Berryville, Carrollton, Valley Springs and several surrounding communities)
  • Hilton Head, S.C. (includes both Hilton Head and Bluffton)
  • Watertown, N.Y. (includes Watertown, Black River, Calcium, Evans Mills, and Fort Drum)

Expanded markets

  • Gloucester County, N.J., (includes Woodbury, Swedesboro, Paulsboro and Bridgeport)
  • Princeton, N.J.

We've seen several AT&T 4G LTE expansions like this one in recent weeks as the carrier continues to spread its LTE network throughout the country. That's great news for anyone with an AT&T LTE-capable handset in an area without LTE coverage yet, and it's especially nice to see the LTE service start to spread into smaller communities. It's also worth noting that we've seen AT&T pepper its LTE expansion announcements throughout the day in the past, so if you're waiting for the service to hit your hometown, stay tuned and we'll update you if Big Blue reveals any other network growth today.

UPDATE: AT&T has announced that its 4G LTE network has also expanded in the following areas:

  • Gary, Ind. (now covers parts of Hobart, Lake Station, Portage and South Haven. Previous coverage included parts of Beecher, Cedar Lake, Chesterton, Crete, Crown Point, Dyer, East Chicago, Griffith, Hammond, Hebron, Highland, Kouts, Lowell, Merrillville, Michigan City, Munster, Porter, Saint John and Schererville)
  • Hernando County, Fla. (includes parts of Brooksville, Weeki Wachee and Spring Hill)
