AT&T covers 8 more markets with LTE service, including Honolulu
With the Apple iPhone 5 the first of Apple's iconic smartphones to support LTE, the carriers have been on a mission to expand their LTE coverage to as many heavily populated, or oft-traveled locations, before the phone's launch on Friday. By doing this, Verizon, AT&T and Sprint are adding to the number of possible buyers for the latest iteration of the iPhone. Just the other day, the nation's second largest carrier added Wilmington, Delaware and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to its LTE footprint. Today, AT&T has turned the switch to on in 8 more locations while expanding coverage in another.

AT&T's 4G LTE service is now available in the Detroit metro area, Portland, Seattle, Honolulu, Pittsburgh, Sacramento, Birmingham and Memphis. In addition, LTE coverage has been expanded tin Miami-Dade County. LTE service offers 4G data speeds as much as ten times faster than 3G. That, of course, is just a guideline and actual speeds can be higher or lower. For example, on Tuesday some LTE users in Detroit were able to download data at speeds of around 54Mbps.

I'm confused, is this article about AT&T adding LTE coverage in various markets or the Apple IPhone 5?

Seattle got it, but not surrounding areas. :( Guess I might make a trip out there just to test it out... And, yes jumped ship from Spritn to AT&T less than a week ago. No regrets so far!

just a heads up, as far as "surrounding areas" I drive a truck daily up and down the Puget Sound and I am definately getting it in Marysville, and when I was in Pierce County earlier, LTE was showing up where 4G used to be! thanks At&t!
