AT&T brings LTE to St. Louis, expands in Staten Island
AT&T’s ultra-fast 4G LTE network might not have the coverage Verizon has, but it’s catching up. The newest additions to AT&T’s list of LTE markets are St. Louis and New York’s Staten Island. AT&T flips the switch on in St. Louis, while for Staten Island coverage is expanded. Currently, the second-biggest US carrier offers LTE in all five boroughs.

AT&T and Verizon both promise speeds of between 5Mbps and 12Mbps on the downlink and between 2Mbps and 5Mbps on the upstream. In reality, AT&T’s yet uncongested network has shown that it can reach much more than that currently.

Both carriers, though, cap data allowances at 10GB maximum. The latest 4G LTE addition to AT&T’s LTE network is the Nokia Lumia 900, but there is also a wide selection of LTE Android devices like the Galaxy S II Skyrocket.

"the right side"
That's the East.

It has a greater amout of population dense areas --> more people covered per tower --> rollout faster to people --> better.

Get it?

Here's another thing:
Key West is a small little place. Not many people really live here, but there's tons of tourists. This means, there's lots of users. So, this spot is better for the companies than high-residental cities.
Interesting, right?

What's their definition of expanding on Staten Island:
moving a Micro-Cell Tower 10 feet to the right or service on that tugboat called the Staten Island Ferry?

This is good news for me because I live in St Louis and ive been waiting for the LTE switch to be turned on. Now all I have to do is to upgrade to the Note and call it a day.

This isnt as great of news like the Cardinals winning the world series last year, but its worth smiling about lol
