14 new markets receive AT&T’s LTE

By , Apr 3, 2013

Last time we checked, AT&T’s fourth-generation Long-Term Evolution (LTE) radio technology covered 288 million people in the United States. Today, the telco is flipping the switch on LTE in fourteen new markets as part of its ongoing network expansion, so that number is bound to go up in the following days.

Unfortunately, AT&T (for now) shows no sign of updating its sales policies to match T-Mobile’s new installment payment offering which entices people to buy the iPhone 5 separate of their wireless service for $99 down plus $20 per month over 24 months…

If it’s any consolation, AT&T did respond to T-Mobile becoming the first major U.S. telco to offer HD Voice, or Wideband Audio, beginning with the iPhone 5 launch on April 12: AT&T on its part promised to roll out HD Voice support later this year.

Both Consumer Reports and Rootmetrics agree that AT&T’s LTE is the fastest among major U.S. telcos, though Verizon’s LTE is available in more places.

Financial Times reported yesterday that AT&T and Verizon are reportedly joining forces to make a massive bid for Vodafone, the world’s second-largest carrier.

Under the terms of the rumored deal, which hasn’t been finalized yet, Verizon would buy Vodafone’s 45 per cent stake in their Verizon Wireless joint venture and AT&T would take Vodafone’s non-US assets, essentially giving AT&T a much-needed entree into the European market.

      I was just in Carthage, MO and there is LTE up there
      Also Springdale, Fort Smith and Fayetteville have had LTE since before the iPhone 5 launched.

    Why always AT&T. maybe AT&T will pay for the ad????

    You continue to erroneously report that AT&T’s LTE covers 288 million people. Not true.

    They eclisped 150 million in November 2012 and plan to cover 250 million by the end of 2013.

    They arrive at the 288 million number by combining HSPA+ and LTE.

    Thanks for the news, Christian. It’s awesome that AT&T is expanding their LTE network into new areas so quickly. I travel all over the country for my job at DISH, and I rely on my phone for both business and entertainment. The faster my data speed the faster I can get work done and the faster speeds make my entertainment better too. I use my DISH Anywhere app to keep up with my favorite teams while on the road; it streams live TV and DVR recordings to my phone, and the faster speeds mean higher quality streams for my games!
