AT&T continues 4G LTE network expansion effort
In a continuing effort to extend the gift of LTE to more markets, AT&T has just added seven more areas to be graced by the next-generation network. This follows what is a tradition now – AT&T tirelessly expands their 4G network, and we report it so that you know precisely when to start shaking with uncontrollable joy.

A quick recap – while still officially behind Verizon in terms of total LTE coverage, No. 2 in the US reportedly covers over 292 million people throughout 300 markets. Pretty impressive considering that the total population of the US of A is estimated at about 314 million. Moreover, in a recent countrywide drive-through, PCMag released the results of its annual network testing – on average AT&T won over Verizon and any other in terms of actual LTE speeds in urban areas (Verizon fared better in rural regions).

The newest markets to get the green light on lightning fast connectivity are:

  • Minot, North Dakota
  • Warren County, New Jersey
  • Visalia-Porterville, California
  • Brainerd Lakes, Minnesota
  • Jackson County, Georgia
  • Batesburg-Leesville, South Carolina
  • Mount Vernon, Ohio

Here in central MA a Verizon LTE device got me a whopping 1.5 mps download speed while AT&T's non LTE 4G on a similar device ran 10 mps download speed. (HSPA+) Closer to Worcester AT&T's LTE ran higher - 25 mps and up. So the article is correct; at least for my area.

Keep doing it AT&T make us consumer's more happy, now just bring back that option to upgrade early and everything is perfect........its like I told before in a post before, AT&T is the best because their signals work better because it go thru the walls.....I told yall already tmobile, metro pcs and sprint do not work in my house in brooklyn......Verizon get 1 to 2 bars but in the basement it get nothing, but once you get outside the Verizon phone get back all its bars, it just sucks inside, so everyone in my building have AT&T
