One week after its previous 4G LTE network expansion, AT&T has announced that its LTE footprint is growing once again. The big blue carrier said this morning that its LTE service is now available in five new markets and that it has expanded in an additional four locales. The announcements made so far are as follows:

New markets

  • Florence-Muscle Shoals, Ala.
  • Gallup, N.M.
  • Rio Grande Valley, Texas
  • Tri-Cities, Wash.
  • Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Expanded markets

  • Logan, Ohio (now includes portions of Hocking and Meigs counties)
  • New Bedford, Mass. (now includes portions of New Bedford, Acushnet, Berkley, Freetown, North Dighton, Marion, Rehoboth and Westport)
  • Providence and Kent counties, R.I. (now includes parts of Chepachet, Coventry, Exeter, Glocester, Johnston, North Smithfield and West Greenwich)
  • Salinas, Calif. (now includes parts of King City)

More LTE coverage is always a good thing, especially when the new and expanded service is sprinkled throughout the U.S. like today's AT&T's expansion is. If you live in one of the areas listed above and are rocking some AT&T LTE-compatible hardware, be sure to swing by the comments section below and let us know how the network is treating you on this fine Wednesday morning!
