AT&T graces new cities with 4G LTE service, while others see an expansion
For the good citizens living in Wichita, Kansas; Gainesville, Georgia; Corpus Christi, Texas; Burlington, North Carolina; and Buffalo, New York, they’re waking up to the invigorating news that they’ve now covered under the awe-inspiring presence of 4G LTE data in the air. Conversely, Cleveland, Ohio and Charlotte, North Carolina are being graced with an expansion that will further branch the existing LTE network.
Therefore, if you’re living in the markets mentioned above, you can now take advantage of all the wonderful LTE enabled devices that AT&T has to offer. Meaning, if you’ve been eying devices like the Sony Xperia ion, HTC One X, or the Samsung Galaxy S III, you can go on ahead and experience them to their fullest capacities. And you know what they say about LTE, once you experience it, there’s no going back to settling with anything less!

Building its LTE network and expanding already built towers is a good idea saves time so they wont have to do it later when time is of the essence.

Im starting to see a changing of the guard with cellphones. As great as Verizon has been in adding and/or expanding their LTE network, i think that AT&T's LTE network is more stable.
I can be wrong and people have their own preferences as well as disagreements, but I look at the technology behind their networks and AT&T's network is faster than Verizon when it comes to the network backups to LTE when not available
what can i say, im a geek lol

no you not wrong, I got better service with AT&T then I ever had, I remember almost switching to Verizon or Sprint, since tmobile didnt work in my house in NY....Verizon do not work well in my house either, but it work more places in NY then tmobile

I live in Wichita, KS and have an HTC One X and omg i'm constantly getting around 13mbps!! Our LTE has been kicked on though for about a month so this is kind of late. Love AT&T LTE just better watch your data if your only on the 3GB plan.

Can someone explain to me how at&t will only pull down 13 Mbps when they are supposed to be faster than VZW LTE. I get no slower than 20 Mbps and usually about 30 Mbps with peak speeds of 40 Mbps on my DROID Razr in an area that is more dense with VZW LTE devices (Tacoma, Wa.) Than Wichita is with at&t LTE devices. Matter of fact I've never seen these T-Mobile or at&t 15 Mbps speeds on 3G. I have many friends with both networks. Fastest speed I have seen for either is 5 Mbps with there HSPA+. Granted that is much faster than VZW 1 Mbps 3G. Is the state of Washington just an anomaly For cellular networks? Not trying to pick a fight, just looking for an honest and logical response.

I'm pulling 25-30 mbps in Dallas on my Galaxy s3 on Att as we speak. Dunno.

dont worry bout him or her, they are just trolling
9. Gemmol (Posts: 441; Member since: 09 Nov 2011)
they are faster I live in NY and get 30 mbps lowest i ever seen was 17mbps the highest i seen was 40........I do not know how speed thing works, but people get all different types of speed, theres a lot of different factors why people get certain speed, just cause you got 20 does not mean your phone faster then his ONE X, he could of checked his speed at a time when everyone use their phone or maybe he had one or two bars, im not trying to give excuses but there is no competition with AT&T speed beside T-mobile......and only reason I say that because their 3g is fast (HSPA+) and before you say im rare to get those speed in NY well my cousin have a galaxy 2 phone and she got the same speed as me but I will admit her numbers was higher then my Galaxy Note, so I am wondering if she have a better antenna

you see how I did not thumbs down slickric620, this how the website should be, I appreciate his comment even tho I disagree with his opinion....but instead all everyone do is press thumbs down button for everything, sometimes it just be funny, I think yall do it to be clowns

Gemmol. Thanks for the reply. Sorry to the other poster above. I'm not trolling. I have better things to do with my time than to troll. Wife, son, job, etc... I figured there had to be faster speeds out there. Why do all these tests they keep posting on phone arena show LTE with such slow speeds regardless of carrier? I have never been anywhere with LTE and had slower speeds than about 18 Mbps and that was a one time thing. I just don't get some of the hype they build up on HSPA+ though its a solid network with decent speeds it is inferior to LTE (regardless of carrier). Phone arena sure seems to love it though.

I think it be depending on the phone and the antenna, but this is just my opinion, and I think they be using older models too because not everyone have newer phones and this is why I think the speeds be low because only old phones be in those range

I am in Kansas City on Business and my LTE is many places is 30-50Mbps down and 10-20 Mbps up any where from North Kansas City to Overland Park, KS.
Also have a VZW LTE MIFI spot and 5 down and 8 up in these areas.

I see Charlotte, NC, my location, is getting expanded 4G LTE.!!! Go AT&T go.! Too bad I'm with Sprint. -_-

come to the fast speeds (AT&T) pick up a Galaxy Note, it is great in my opinion and the internet speed too

Come on AT&T, get with it. At this point in the game, they should be rolling out at least 10-15 new markets every quarter to have everything completed by the end of 2013, like they say they will have completed.
