AT&T keeps foot on the gas, announces 35 more LTE markets

att_logo_vignette720

It seems almost like clockwork these last few weeks that AT&T will announce a handful of new markets seeing 4G LTE speeds. One week it might be a dozen new areas, the next with another 18 or so. This week, AT&T is announcing faster data speeds in 36 new markets. On top of that, AT&T is enhancing coverage in cities such as Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Atlanta.

New markets seeing AT&T 4G LTE:

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.

AT&T is moving so fast on its 4G LTE deployment that it has raised its forecast and year-end goal from 250 million to 270 million people covered. With these new cities, AT&T now covers 326 markets across the United States. Verizon, by contrast, recently wrapped up number 500; Sprint is officially over 100 and T-Mobile is pushing for 100 million people by the middle of the year (now?).
