AT&T's 4G LTE network activated in several new markets, expanded in a few othersAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
AT&T said yesterday during its Q2 2013 results announcement that it plans on covering 400 markets with its 4G LTE service before the end of 2013, and today the big blue carrier got a few steps closer to achieving that goal. AT&T has revealed that its LTE network is now live in a handful of new markets and that existing coverage has been expanded in a few others. The list of new and expanded locales that've been announced so far looks like this:
- Greenville, Ala.
- Troy, Ala.
- Merced and Madera-Chowchilla, Calif. (along the Highway 99 corridor)
- Vallejo-Vacaville, Calif.
- New London County, Del.
- Sussex County, Del. (includes Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach, Lewes, Fenwick Island, Ocean View, Georgetown, Millsboro and Frankford)
- Columbia, Mo.
- Litchfield, Conn. (now includes parts of Barkhamsted, Burlington, Canton, Harwinton, Litchfield, New Hartford, Plymouth and Torrington)
- Springfield, Mass. (now includes portions of Becket, Blandford, Granville, Otis, Russell and Westfield)
- Manchester and Nashua, N.H. (now includes parts of Atkinson, Brentwood, Candia, Deerfield, Derry, Exeter, Hampstead, Hampton, Kingston, Londonderry, Newfields, Nottingham, Northwood, Pelham, Rockingham and Saddleback Mountain)
AT&T's LTE network recently surpassed the 325-market mark, and so long as it keeps up the steady LTE rollout that we've seen in recent months, ol' Blue could very well hit its 400-market goal by the time that 2013 wraps up. For now, though, it's time for the AT&T customers in the towns listed above to enjoy their newly-activated LTE coverage. If you're an AT&T subscriber that calls one of those places "home," be sure to let us know how AT&T's LTE network is treating you!
