150 million people can now access AT&T 4G LTE and that is twice the number that could access the carrier's speediest service last year. By the end of next year, that figure is expected to rise to 250 million people and hit 300 million people by 2015. As of today, the mobile operator covers 103 markets with LTE.
AT&T continues to trail Verizon in the number of markets it covers with LTE. Big Red's 4G LTE signal reaches into 440 markets, covering more than 250 million people although the carrier did have a huge head start. AT&T does have a comfortable lead over Sprint. That carrier just started building out its LTE pipeline in June.
