AT&T expands its LTE footprint, adding 7 new markets
AT&T has announced that it is expanding its 4G LTE service to 7 new markets. The cities getting AT&T's fastest wireless service include Greensboro-Winston Salem, North Carolina; Corpus Christi, Texas; Gainesville, Georgia; Buffalo, New York; Burlington, Vermont; Wichita, Kansas and Cleveland, Ohio. That brings the number of markets covered by AT&T's LTE pipeline to 47, equaling 80 million people. AT&T hopes to complete its LTE rollout by the end of next year.

More specifically, the Cleveland update includes Brecksville, Brunswick, Elyria, Hinckley, Hudson, Mentor, Solon, Strongsville, Twinsburg, and Wadsworth. The North Carolina markets include Gastonia, Lake Norman, N.C. Hwy. 3 from Kannapolis to Mooresville, U.S. 52 from China Grove to Mooresville, south of Salisbury to the Granite Quarry area, and U.S. 601 between Concord and Monroe, N.C. AT&T models that support LTE include the Nokia Lumia 900, the Samsung GALAXY Note (which was updated to Android 4.0 on Tuesday) and the HTC One X.

Verizon has recently expanded its LTE coverage to include Rome and Columbus, Ga. which brings the number of markets served by Big Red's LTE network to 304. The mobile operator wants to hit 400 markets served by the end of this year.

Nice to see other parts of North Carolina getting 4G LTE from AT&T. I'm kind of jealous as a Sprint customer that we don't any access to 4G LTE yet and the fact that even when Sprint turns it on next week, I believe, Charlotte, NC isn't even one of the first cities to have 4G LTE. -_-
