AT&T expanding its LTE footprint next Sunday; carrier set to release the Nokia Lumia 900
Next Sunday, AT&T is all set to launch the first Windows Phone model to support LTE, the Nokia Lumia 900. This explains why Sunday will also see the carrier increase its LTE footprint to 12 markets. Among the cities that will offer LTE from the nation's second largest carrier after next Sunday are Bloomington and Muncie, Indiana, along with Bryan-College Station, Texas. The other markets offering LTE for AT&T are St. Louis, Missouri, Naples, Florida, Lafayette, Indiana, Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana, Akron, Canton, and Cleveland, Ohio, and Staten Island, New York City.

Brian Ducharme, vice president and general manager of AT&T Indiana and Michigan said, "We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Muncie responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, on the best devices." Besides offering the first LTE enabled 4G Windows Phone with the Nokia Lumia 900, other LTE enabled models on AT&T's lineup include the Samsung GALAXY Note LTE, the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and the Pantech Element tablet.

The just released 2012 AT&T Small Business Technology Poll shows that 96% of small businesses use wireless technology while 63% said that their business could not survive without the use of wireless technology. One-third of smartphones used by small business for business purposes has 4G support while 86% of the businesses using 4G devices are satisfied with the speed. Of those without a 4G smartphone, 35% plan on picking one up sometime in the next year with that figure rising to 54% over the next two years.
