AT&T adds new markets to its 4G LTE network, still far behind Verizon
AT&T has just announced that some new cities can now feel the power of its blazing-fast 4G LTE network. In addition, the carrier has expanded its LTE coverage in a number of other markets.

That's certainly good news both for the carrier and its customers, as AT&T has been far behind Verizon in the LTE game, mostly due to Big Red's early start. Now, AT&T is working hard to close that gap with its rival, although Verizon isn't really resting on its laurels, with the recent addition of 33 new markets, making for a total of 337 LTE locations. So, yeah, AT&T has a lot of catching-up to do.

For AT&T, joining the 47 currently covered locations are 4 new ones, namely:

  • West Palm Beach, Fla.;
  • Miami, Fla.;
  • Ft. Louderdale, Fla.;
  • Worcester area, Mass.

As we said, not only is AT&T adding these markets, but it's also expanding its coverage in the following locations:

  • Washington, D.C.;
  • Baltimore, Bd.;
  • Boston area, Mass.

Congratulations to those who live in these areas, you can now use your mobile device to surf the web with awesome speeds! Or, if you still don't have an LTE-powered device, maybe that's the perfect occasion to make the move and transform this into a double-win.

Att still is ommitting many Major markets, I"m very surprised at their staggered LTE launch. At this rate they're taking, they might as well gone with LTE release 10 instead of release 8 since its already taking forever to roll out. well, just glad I'm not on them.

Ray, of course AT&T is going to be far behind Verizon. At least they're adding and expanding their 4G LTE, so why do you have to mention the obvious.? Well, if you're the same reporter that posts a story on Sprint adding new markets to its 4G LTE network, I expect the title to say, "Sprint addes new 4G LTE markers, WAY behind Verizon and AT&T." :-S

But they have "4G" HSPA+ just about everywhere they have 3G.

U dnt need to be in an att LTE AREA to use your phone at fast speeds everywhere else at&t has hspa+ and its still plenty fast I have gotten up to 12 mbps on my xperia ion on hspa .

Everyone knows Verizon is King (or, Queen - don't want to offend the 4 G LTE ladies); AT&T is just a Dowager Duchess compared to Verizon.

Eh, I would like to see AT&T's LTE in Columbus,Ohio but no worries, my HSPA+ is pulling around 4-7 Mbps download speeds and thats fast enough for me. Verizon can't say that on their old CDMA EV-DO Rev. A 3g for those people without their LTE or when their LTE is out.
