AT&T makes huge LTE push with 35 new markets

att-store-logo

Verizon has reached its goal of covering nearly all of its current 3G markets with 4G LTE by the end of 2013, but its biggest competitor — AT&T — won’t sit by idly. The company has been launching anywhere from half to a full dozen markets every week for quite some time, and now we’re faced with its biggest push yet. AT&T has announced the addition of 35 new 4G LTE markets today, as well as expansions in 17 more. Check out the massive list:

Pine Bluff, Ark.; Searcy, Ark.; Chico-Oroville, Calif.; Grand Junction, Col.; Silverthorne, Col.; Homosassa Springs, Fla.; Palatka, Fla.; Milledgeville, Ga.; Valdosta, Ga.; Lafayette, La.; Morgan City, La.; New Iberia, La.; Cape Cod, Mass.; New Ulm, Minn.; Corinth-New Albany, Miss.; Greenwood-Cleveland, Miss.; Grenada, Miss.; Meridian, Miss.; Cape Girardeau, Mo.; Atlantic City-Toms River, N.J.; Batavia, N.Y.; Dunn, N.C.; Lawton, Okla.; Dillon, S.C.; Midland, Texas; Odessa, Texas; Sherman-Denison, Texas; Victoria, Texas; St. Croix, US Virgin Islands; St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands; Bremerton, Wash.; Moses Lake, Wash.;Yakima, Wash.; Beckley, W.V.; and Oak Hill, W.V.

To top that off, expansions in major areas such as Twin Cities, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Atlanta are rolling out. Many folks doubted AT&T’s ability to meet its goal of covering a vast majority of its 3G network with 4G LTE by the end of 2013, especially considering Verizon had such a huge head start. Well, I don’t think anyone’s doubting them anymore after this. Check the list to see if your city made it, and be sure to give the network a good workout if you are living in one of them.

    So, does AT&T not know about the new 2-letter state abbreviations, or…?

    I’ve not seen “Mass.”, “Minn.”, or “Miss.” so many times since I was in grade school.

      On Sprint I didn’t see any kind of 3G expanding. Even though they
      said they were using that Network Vision. And I’d like to fall back
      decent network if I don’t have LTE.

      Many PR depts/firms use Associated Press writing style, which uses many of these “old school” abbreviations (or non-abbreviations, in the case of states like Texas).

      • Chad Vincent

        But they even got that wrong, since AP style is to use the old postal codes, which is “W.Va.”, not “W.V.”

        I’m kind of surprised the AP is 25 years behind the curve on this, too.

    Maybe they should target populated markets.

    Att, only carrier left that’s American owned and operated.
    One of the reasons I stick with them. That and the fact that neither Sprint nor T-Mobile offer descent network coverage outside of the Pittsburgh area. Honestly tmobile is the only other carrier I’d think about in the future, not until they get a wide spread lte network up in the western pa area.

      I saw their coverage map. It looks like it doesn’t even go towards the Western part of the USA.

      I was like good heavens that’s horrible.

    shouldn’t at&t finish building out its 3G network first

    • BulletTooth_Tony

      they are. good post though. way to keep up.

    I’m still glad with my choice to move to Tmo from Sprint. And I’m going to patiently wait for Tmo to increase their LTE.

    I was on Tmo before and I used to get 2G out by NW Houston. 6 months in that 2G changed to H. They were expanding.

    On Sprint I didn’t see any kind of 3G expanding. Even though they said they were using that Network Vision. And I’d like to fall back decent network if I don’t have LTE.

      Help out with the actual Tmo coverage map by installing the Sensorly app and running its mapping mode when you go on trips. They seem to update their website coverage maps from my uploaded data at least once a day, from my tests.

    How is anyone suppose to give a network that is limited to 3gb’s/mo a “good workout”???

  • barondebxl
