AT&T 4G LTE logo

How about a glass of freshly-activated AT&T 4G LTE service to go with your breakfast this morning? That's precisely what AT&T customers in several cities are getting, as ol' Big Blue has announced that its LTE coverage has been activated in several new locales across the country. Here's the full rundown of new and expanded LTE coverage that's been revealed so far today:

New markets

  • Binghamton, N.Y.
  • Carbondale-Marion, Ill. (also includes Benton, Carterville, Energy, Herrin, Johnston City, Murphysboro and West Frankfort)
  • Fort Pierce and Stuart, Fla.
  • Fort Smith, Ark. (also includes Alma, Barling, Clarksville, Greenwood, Knoxville, Lamar, Ozark and Van Buren as well as the surrounding areas of Arkoma, Muldrow, Pocola, Rock Island, Roland, Sallisaw and Spiro in Eastern Oklahoma)
  • Fresno, Calif.
  • Houma/Thibodaux, La.
  • Jefferson City, Mo.
  • Lakeland-Winter Haven, Fla.
  • Las Cruces, N.M.
  • Montgomery, Ala.
  • Mount Dora, Fla.
  • Mount Vernon, Wash.
  • Palm Coast, Fla.
  • Temple/Killeen, Texas

Expanded markets

  • Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers, Ark.

This latest expansion is quite a bit larger than others we've seen recently from AT&T, but hey, I'm not one to complain about seeing more 4G LTE airwaves rolling out across the country. Today's LTE expansion means that AT&T customers that live one of the cities listed above and own a piece of LTE-capable hardware should now be able to browse the web and download apps at increased network speeds, and it also brings LTE to the towns just in time for AT&T's launches of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4. AT&T has said that it expects its LTE network to cover 250 million people by the end of 2013, with that number growing to 300 million people by the end of 2014.

UPDATE: AT&T just announced that its 4G LTE network has also gone live in Beaumont, Texas.

Anthony Bailey I'm in the Washington, DC suburbs. One of AT&Ts best covered 4G LTE areas. I loved it. I average about 56Mbps downloading speeds. I have never seen 3G or HSPA in the year I've been with AT&T.
Rogelio Esquivel Yup I got lte 60 up 45 down
Jeff Griffith No LTE anywhere near me, time to switch when contract is up!
Jeff Griffith Just HSPA "4g" if you call that 4g
Dave Morgan Yes. I am not in a major market and I've seen download speeds up to 60mbps.
Mary Foley Whalen Faster IS better! :)
Jessica Rodriguez No, but I'm with Verizon Wireless just cheaper since my whole family is on Verizon plan in California, New York and Florida
Phillip Bernal T-Mobile >>>
Michael McNeill Yes I am, and I love it
Chris Kettler i'm three hours away from the closest lte city, and two hours from the two i can reasonably see getting lte. my town though i don't think will ever get it. we'll probably be on some entire new form of communication rendering cell phones obsolete by then.
Tyrell V Mason Yup El Paso covered!
Jose Be Julme I don't want to be.
Reese Woodson I been covered with LTE for a couple of years here in Los Angeles. So I'm good to go.

Nick Sanford even though you have to deal with all the bs with verizon, nothing compares to the coverage you get IMO
Abram Wenevermet Dennis Yes.. Louisiana blazing fast
