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.
