AT&T's 4G LTE network expands once againAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Today's Wednesday, and that means that many folks are likely going to excitedly spread that one Geico commercial about a camel on hump day to all of their friends. I've got some news that's sure to make this hump day even brighter for AT&T customers, though, as the big blue carrier has announced that its 4G LTE network is now available in several more parts of the country. Here's the list of cities announced so far:
- Rockford, Ill.
- Fairmont, Minn.
- Owatonna, Minn.
- Rochester, Minn.
- Williston, N.D.
- Youngstown-Warren, Ohio
- Farmville, Va.
- Niagara and northern Erie Counties (includes Niagara State Park, Lewiston, Northern Grand Island and more)
- Saginaw and Bay City, Mich.
- Monroe County, N.Y. (includes Nazareth College, St. John Fisher College, Northside, and Concrest and Spring Lake Parks)
It looks like AT&T decided to show quite a bit of love to the northern portion of the U.S. with its latest LTE rollout, but there's also some 4G love in there college students and folks that love the combination of high-speed wireless data and nature. AT&T has said that it plans to cover a total of 400 markets with LTE before the end of 2013, and so long as it keeps expanding coverage at the rate that is has been, ol' Blue shouldn't have trouble reaching that goal. Are any of you located in one of the newly-activated or expanded AT&T LTE markets?
