Another week, another expansion of AT&T’s fourth-generation Long-Term Evolution (LTE) network. Having rolled out LTE to customers in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Nashua, New Hampshire and Grand Rapids last week, the Dallas, Texas-headquartered US wireless company Tuesday morning announced the addition of five new LTE markets.

Customers in Green Bay, Springfield, Tucson, Melbourne and Oxford should start seeing AT&T’s LTE on supported devices. These latest additions expand the carrier’s LTE coverage to 125 metropolitan markets. By contrast, rival Verizon Wireless claims 470 LTE-enabled markets…

If you’re an AT&T subscriber and live in any of the following areas, you should be seeing LTE speeds on your compatible mobile devices (via CNET):

• Green Bay, Wisconsin
• Springfield, Massachusetts
• Tucson, Arizona
• Melbourne, Florida
• Oxford, Mississippi

In addition to new markets, AT&T also announced that customers in Phoenix, Los Angeles, New York and Salt Lake City should all benefit from better coverage as well.

When it comes to download speeds, your mileage will vary from place to place, but you should definitely experience a big increase in network performance and data speeds.

AT&T last month said its 4G service was in over a hundred markets, covering some 130 million people. The carrier will finish commercial LTE deployment in late-2014 versus mid-2013 for Verizon.

Even though Verizon’s LTE is available in more US cities than AT&T’s, Consumer Reports thinks the latter’s LTE is the best.

What’s your experience AT&T’s LTE been like so far?
