AT&T lights up LTE in eight new cities

By , Nov 14, 2012

As part of its $14 billion LTE network expansion, U.S. carrier AT&T today announced the launch of speedy LTE radio technology in eight new cities: Milwaukee, WI; Denver, CO; Louisville, KY; Orlando, FL; York, PA; Tacoma, WA; Annapolis, MD; and Provo, UT. Apple users in these areas who own an LTE device such as the iPhone 5 or cellular iPads should see notable speed gains over the coming days. Just last week, the carrier rolled out LTE in Little Rock, Arkansas and expanded LTE coverage in Bakersfield, California and Florida Keys, Florida…

AT&T via media releases confirmed LTE roll-out in LouisvilleMilwaukee, Tacoma, York, Daytona BeachAnne Arundel County, Denver and Provo-Orem. Customers in Greater Seattle Area should also see enhanced LTE coverage.

The carrier intends to cover 99 percent of all locations in its 22-state wireline service area with 4G LTE and expects to have about 118Mhz of spectrum nationwide.

Despite such an aggressive roll out, rival Verizon remains the nation’s top carrier in terms of 4G LTE speeds and coverage. Verizon now has nearly two-thirds of U.S. population covered with LTE and is expected to complete the commercial deployment of the technology by mid-2013.

What’s your experience with 4G LTE on AT&T been like so far?

    Been loving AT&T LTE in the Seattle/Tacoma area. I’ve gotten up to 56mb down on speedtest.net.

    10-20 Mbps down in Orem, UT area. It’s no 50-60 Mbps like others but considering my previous average was about 1 Mbps down, I’m happy!

    I live in a relatively small city, about 15,000 people and I’ll probably have to wait until 2016 to get LTE. Verizon already has it here though

    I live in Milwaukee and there are a ton of sections around the city where your phone just won’t load data because there are other people using their AT&T phone.
    Especially during things like rush hour or Thursday-Saturday night near busy streets haha. Hopefully this will alleviate the network strain from AT&T’s lack of towers in busy sections of the city.
