AT&T closing in on 400 LTE markets

AT&T closing in on 400 LTE markets
AT&T flipped the LTE switch on 14 new markets today, bringing its LTE service footprint to 397 markets total. Well short of Verizon’s LTE network, but well on track for AT&T’s stated goal to cover 420 markets by the end of 2013.

With the addition of these new cities, AT&T claims that its LTE coverage now reaches over 225 million people. As coverage increases, the number of people covered will have more meaning more than anything.

AT&T subscribers should be seeing LTE coverage now in these new markets.  Just like when Verizon was on a mad roll to build its LTE, as AT&T's coverage progresses, the list of towns grows more and more obscure:

  • Vidalia and Waycross, Georgia
  • Murray, Kentucky
  • Alexandria, Louisiana
  • Rolla, Missouri
  • Columbus and Yazoo City, Mississippi
  • Albemarle, Greenville and Morehead City, North Carolina
  • Sandusky, Ohio
  • Morristown, Tennessee
  • Abilene, Texas
  • Logan, Utah

Below is a table of how all the major carriers in the US are shaping up with LTE service.
