AT&T launches LTE in 5 more markets
posted by Michael H. / Jun 19, 2013, 11:44 AM
AT&T still doesn't cover as much ground as Verizon (which is why it lost in the rural areas), but it does cover over 300 markets around the country at this point, and more than 292 million people, which is pretty solid considering estimates say that there are only 314 million people in the U.S.
The newest markets lit up by AT&T's LTE network are: Tri-Cities, Washington; Brownsville, Texas; Gallup, New Mexico; Tuscaloosa, Alabama; and Florence, Alabama.

Just because AT&T and its partners claims it being the most reliable doesn't make it the truth. Verizon is definitely more reliable and I can prove it unlike some fake claims

Agreed, however I can't stand AT&T or Verizon... they are both over-rated corporate conglomerate's that freely abuse our privacy and are basically against our rights. With that said, I have tested numerous AT&T iPhone 5's and the LTE mode has to be reset at least 5 times a day on each phone to get LTE back after is mysteriously dissappears, either that or you have to toggle Airplane mode as LTE will just go away and never come back unless you toggle it.

Reliability is dependent on location. I can prove that, in my area, AT&T is more reliable than VZ. I have had both services, and AT&T is far better here.

Yea I get great service with both Verizon and AT&T, Verizon does have LTE but it seems to go on and off randomly. So one minute you'll be getting speeds as fast as 20 down and the next .30 down with 3G. Now of course, I don't mean it literally turns on and off every minute but you get my point. AT&T doesn't have LTE here yet but they do have the entire area flooded with HSPA+ and while it is no LTE, it sure hell is better than 3G. Sprint's network also works fine in my area, as long as I'm not in big buildings, you can make calls and text but internet, you can pretty much forget about. Though outside and by windows it works fine. Also, they are in the process of getting LTE here and my friend has the Galaxy Victory on Virgin Mobile and again, got 25 down on the speed test, I was very impressed.

how can you say the claims are fake, when AT&T have customers to prove.........I been with AT&T for a lot of years now and in my house AT&T is the only carrier that get all bars in NY.....my cousin who had tmobile and my boy who have tmobile gets no service, do not even ask about sprint......my uncle who have Verizon get 2 bars on the second floor where I stay but if he went to the basement he gets no service while I have 2 to 3 bars......all I am saying AT&T works good in places Verizon do not and Verizon works better in places where AT&T do not so I am guessing the places you visit do not have AT&T towers nearby or some else......or you stating old facts you had of AT&T years ago because I will admit when I moved to Virginia for 3 years, I had no AT&T service but before I left when they bring LTE I started to get service everywhere, the only reason I did not switch because I would go back to NY every now and then and the other companies service sucks in my house........I recently went to VA in April and I must admit AT&T did a great job I had full bars everywhere I went where I use to have 1 or 2 bars so if the places you have suck, they will get better in time........I still believe AT&T towers are better they penetrate walls better
