AT&T Flaship Chicago Store

The United States wireless carrier AT&T has lit up its fourth-generation Long-Term Evolution (LTE) network in twelve new municipalities around the country. The expansion brings AT&T’s LTE to an additional 300,000 people, including the 65,000 residents of Bismark, North Dakota.

With this expansion, nearly 280 million people are covered by AT&T’s LTE network in more than 500 U.S. markets. More than half of the carrier’s postpaid smartphone customers now use a 4G LTE device. The carrier expects its LTE build out to be “essentially complete” by this summer. The full list of AT&T’s new LTE coverage follows right after the break…

The following markets are getting AT&T’s LTE signal:

  • Anderson, Indiana
  • Deridder, Louisiana
  • Midland, Michigan
  • Lebanon, Missouri
  • Claremont, New Hampshire
  • Lumberton and Bismark, North Carolina
  • Bellefontaine and Defiance, Ohio
  • Greenwood and Seneca, South Carolina
  • Gainesville, Texas

As of February 8, 2014, AT&T blanketed 60 million more Americans with LTE signal than T-Mobile. The carrier’s LTE coverage map can be found here.

The key benefits of 4G LTE over 3G HSPA include reduced network latency allowing LTE devices to establish a connection with the cellular network much faster and about ten time faster download speeds compared to industry average 3G download speeds.

Earlier this month, AT&T launched international LTE roaming in an additional 13 countries, added free international messaging to Mobile Share plans and introduced new family plans with “best-ever” prices.

Are you seeing AT&T’s 4G LTE signal in your area yet?

    Meanwhile in NYC speeds have dropped to below 4MB and in some places does not even reach 56K modem speeds (Midtown).
