AT&T's 4G LTE rollout continues with more new and expanded coverageAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
One week after its previous 4G LTE expansion, AT&T this morning announced another round of new and expanded LTE coverage. Today's network growth brings piping hot LTE service to several new markets across the country as well as some expansions to existing coverage in major cities like Denver and Wilmington. The list of new and expanded markets that've been announced so far is as follows:
- Tuskegee, Ala.
- Bloomington – Normal and Pontiac, Ill.
- Decatur, Ill.
- Lewiston-Auburn, Maine
- Hickory, N.C.
- Jacksonville, N.C.
- Sanford, N.C.
- McAlester, Okla.
- Gillette, Wyo.
- Jackson, Wyo.
- Sheridan, Wyo.
- Denver, Colo. (now includes parts of Evergreen)
- Wilmington, N.C. (now includes portions of New Hanover County)
- Huntsville, Utah
Looks like another nice round of new LTE markets with some expanded coverage mixed in for good measure. AT&T has said that it expects its 4G LTE deployment to be largely complete by the summer of 2014, and so long as it keeps up the pace that we've seen from it in recent weeks, that sounds like a very attainable goal.
