AT&T announces new and expanded 4G LTE coverageAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
What's better than some piping hot 4G LTE coverage to help you get over the hump that is Wednesday? Not much, which is why AT&T customers will be happy to hear that their carrier has flipped its LTE switch in a handful of new markets. AT&T announced this morning that its LTE network is now live in several new cities across the country and that it has expanded some existing LTE service as well. Here's the rundown of all the freshly-lit coverage:
- Kokomo, Ind.
- Shelbyville, Ky.
- Flint, Mich.
- Springfield, Mo.
- Petersburg, Va.
- Morgantown, W.Va.
- Denver, Colo. (now includes parts of Golden and Lakewood)
- Northwest Mississippi (now includes portions of Batesville along Highway 6, Sardis and South Oxford)
As part of its recent Q1 2013 results announcement, AT&T provided also us with a brief update on its 4G LTE rollout. The big blue carrier says that its LTE network covers nearly 200 million people and that, by the end of 2013, it expects to have nearly 90 percent of its planned 300 million POP deployment completed. AT&T also recently revealed a large list of markets in which its LTE service will be going live this summer, so if you're on AT&T and still without LTE coverage, hit up that list right here and see if the LTE network is headed for your town.
