AT&T launching LTE network in NYC this month
AT&T is on track to fulfil its 15-market LTE goal by the end of the year, and luckily New York City is on that list as the carrier confirmed it’s on track to launching its speedy network in the Big Apple. With speeds of 5Mbps to 12Mbps on the downlink, the network matches the one on Verizon Wireless in speeds. 

AT&T uses the 700MHz bands and is currently undergoing testing. Currently, you have a couple of options for handsets: the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, the HTC Vivid, and the upcoming LG Nitro HD all support LTE. 

The second-largest US carriers expects to cover 70 million Americans by the end of the year, which is not a bad achievement, but pales in comparison to Verizon’s 200 million covered.
