Today may just be a regular ol' Tuesday for some folks, but for AT&T customers in a handful of different cities scattered across the U.S., today is officially "4G LTE Day." AT&T has announced that its LTE network is now live in several new markets and that it's also expanded the existing LTE coverage in some other areas. Here's the full list of new and expanded locales that've been announced so far today:

New markets

  • Athens, Texas
  • Centralia, Wash.
  • Chattanooga, Tenn.
  • Corsicana, Texas
  • Gulfport and Biloxi, Miss.
  • Henderson, N.C.
  • Huntsville, Decatur and Cullman, Ala.
  • Huntsville, Texas
  • Lake City, Fla.
  • Lansing, Mich.
  • Mountain Home, Ark.
  • Nacogdoches-Lufkin, Texas
  • Ocala, Fla.
  • Paris, Texas
  • Shreveport and Bossier City, La.

Expanded markets

  • Mechanicsburg, Pa.
  • Nashua, N.H. (now includes parts of Manchester)
  • Phoenix, Ariz. (now includes portions of East Mesa and Sun City)
  • Southeast Arkansas (now includes portions of Dermott, Dumas, Grady, Gould, Lake Village, McGehee, Monticello, Selma and surrounding communities)
  • Tucson, Ariz. (now includes parts of Oro Valley)

That's a fairly sizable list, no? As always, it's good to see more AT&T customers gaining access to their carrier's 4G LTE network, and I'm betting that the folks in the expanded service areas are happy that AT&T is working on growing its existing coverage in addition to rolling out to new coverage. AT&T's LTE network now covers over 200 million people, and the carrier expects to reach almost 90 percent of its planned 300 POP 4G LTE deployment before 2013 wraps up.
