AT&T today made an announcement that ought to help many of its customers get over the Wednesday hump. The big blue carrier has revealed that its 4G LTE network is now available in several new markets across the country, with some freshly-expanded service in existing markets mixed in as well. The list of cities that've been announced by AT&T so far this morning is as follows:

That's a pretty beefy LTE expansion, no? AT&T has been working hard to flesh out its LTE coverage lately, and with a large growth like the one that's been announced today, many more AT&T customers will be getting access to speedy wireless data. Sounds to me like a pretty good way for those AT&T folk to spend their Wednesday. Are you located in any of the cities that are gaining new or expanded AT&T LTE service today? If so, how's the network treating you so far?
