AT&T expands LTE coverage in Phoenix, Lincoln, Lubbock, Hartford County and more

AT&T largest 4g network

AT&T has been on a roll lately. On an LTE roll out to be more precise. After opening up to 6 new markets earlier this week, AT&T is now expanding its LTE coverage to four new areas. If you live in Phoenix, AR, or Hartford County, CT, then you might notice speed increases or simply better LTE coverage overall. If you are located in Lubbock, TX, or Lincoln, NE , you’ll be glad to learn that your iPhone 5 will now be able to connect to the brand new LTE service AT&T just activated in your area…

The Phoenix LTE expansion now includes parts of Avondale, Goodyear and Litchfield Park. The Hartford County expansion now includes parts of Avon, Bloomfield, Enfield, Farmington, Granby, New Britain, Simsbury, Suffield, West Hartford, Windsor and Windsor Locks.

While it appears that Verizon still holds a larger LTE coverage of the country, AT&T reportedly has better speed overall. As an AT&T user myself, it’s not unusual for me to get download speeds of 50+ Mbps and upload speeds of 20+ Mbps. Yes, my LTE speeds are better than my home Wi-Fi speed.

Update: AT&T just sent out press releases noting that LTE has been turned on in the Austin, TX area, more specifically in Marble Falls, Burnet, Bertram and Round Mountain. Additionally, it has also expanded its coverage around Corpus Christi, TX, including parts of Port Aransas, Mustang Island, Portland, Gregory, Odem, Five Points, and Bluntzer.

    AT&T lit up LTE here in Lubbock a few days ago. It’s been awesome. Average speed is 12-20 Mbps download. Upload averages between 8-15 Mbps. Some parts of city, I get about 35-60 Mbps upload and 20-30 Mbps upload. About time too. LTE coverage is a lot stronger and better on my Uni campus here than AT&T 3G/4G.

      Myself and my co-workers (Versacom LLC) are the ones who brought up LTE in Lubbock for AT&T. Good to see our hard work being enjoyed by others!

        Thanks a bunch guys. Really appreciate the hard work.

        Although maybe the West side of the city could use more speed boost because there, I’m getting about 5-8 mbps download and almost the same in upload speed.

        I would say you are right about that. Where I live off 82nd & Milwaukee I’m getting like around 3 to 4 Mbps DL, which is marginally better than what I get on “4G” HSPA+, and my upload speeds are actually worse with LTE in this area

        I Iive near 98th and Frankfort and I’m getting about 15 download and 7-8 upload. At TTU, I’m getting about 30-40 Mbps download and 10-12 upload. Not bad at all.

      20 -30 upload here in Lubbock??? I’m here on 4th & Q and I’m getting 0.4 Mbps upload and like 8 Mbps DL on At&t LTE….where in the city are you getting that kind of speed?! The HSPA+ uploads are like 2 Mbps in this same area.

        Most impressive speeds I’ve seen is on the TTU campus. Max I’ve seen on the campus is 68 Mbps download and 22 Mbps upload. That was when it first launched, before the official announcement.
