Hot on the heels of yesterday's small-ish 4G LTE network expansion, AT&T this morning has announced another, larger rollout of new and expanded LTE coverage. The big blue carrier has revealed that it's growing its LTE footprint in several different parts of the country, including Camden, Ark., and Astoria, Ore. Here's the full list of fresh AT&T LTE service that's been announced so far:

New markets

  • Flagstaff-Sedona, Ariz.
  • Prescott, Ariz.
  • Camden, Ark.
  • El Dorado-Magnolia, Ark.
  • Quad Cities and Sterling, Ill. (includes parts of Sterling and the area of the Quad Cities contained within the Route 80/Route 280 loop, including parts of Rock Island, Moline, East Moline, Davenport and Bettendorf)
  • Duluth-Superior, Minn.
  • Southern New Jersey Shore Points (includes Ocean City, Avalon, Stone Harbor, Sea Isle City, North Wildwood, Wildwood, Wildwood Crest, Cape May and Villas)
  • Kinston, N.C.
  • Dayton, Ohio
  • Astoria, Ore.
  • Brookings, S.D.
  • Watertown, S.D.

Expanded markets

  • Salinas, Calif. (now includes portions of Carmel Valley)
  • East-Central Mississippi (now includes parts of Philadelphia, Carthage, Kosciusko, Lena, Camden, Choctaw and Edinburg)
  • Reno, Nev. (now includes portions along I-80 connection and Spanish Springs)
  • Scranton, Clarks Summit and Harveys Lake, Pa. (Philadelphia, Hatfield, Montgomeryville, Lansdale, Doylestown, Chalfont, Lancaster, Easton, Harrisburg, Linglestown, Mechanicsburg, State College, Reading, Allentown, Thorndale, Bethlehem, Wilkes-Barre, Williamsport and York, Pennsylvania, Avalon, Stone Harbor, Sea Isle City, Ocean City, North Wildwood, Wildwood, Wildwood Crest, Cape May, Villas, Princeton, Woodbury, Swedesboro, Millville, Vineland, Bridgeton, Paulsboro and Bridgeport, New Jersey and Wilmington and Dover, Delaware)

That's a pretty beefy list of new and expanded coverage, and I'm sure that AT&T customers in the newly-lit cities are pretty happy that they're finally being admitted to their carrier's LTE club. It's also worth mentioning that AT&T previously named a large list of markets that it planned to bring LTE service to this summer, so if your city hasn't yet gotten a taste of AT&T LTE service, lay your eyes on this list right here to see if the coverage is coming you way soon. So, are any of you located in one of today's new or expanded markets? If so, how's the service treating you?
