  • AT&T Announces 4G LTE Data Roaming in 13 New Countries


    AT&T was the first and only U.S. cellular carrier to this day to offer 4G LTE data roaming in other countries. It all started last December with an agreement with the Canadian-based Rogers, and shortly after, AT&T signed an agreement with EE in the United Kingdom.

    On Monday, AT&T happily announced to its customers that the carrier has signed even more agreements and is now offering 4G LTE data roaming in 13 new countries. Those locations include:

    • Spain
    • France
    • Japan
    • South Korea
    • Australia
    • Hong Kong
    • Switzerland
    • Malaysia
    • Russia
    • Singapore
    • Guam
    • Hong Kong and Antigua & Barbuda

    AT&T notes that one more country is on the way in the near future, but doesn't give us any hints as to where it might be. The carrier also notes that there are plans in place for AT&T to offer data roaming in more than 200 countries around the world in the future.

    Data roaming allows AT&T customers in the United States to go to other locations around the world and continue to have access to their blazing-fast 4G LTE data speeds while connected to a partnered cellular carrier's network. While the service is available to AT&T customers, that's not to say that it won't be costly. AT&T's data roaming prices are not cheap. It will ultimately be up to the user if the prices are worth the service.

      Same where I live :-) We technically have LTE coverage, but only 1 bar (but hey - it makes AT&T's LTE coverage map look good!). HSPA+ (at 4-5 bars) is consistently faster here.

      I usually turn off 4G LTE data for faster speed and just use 4G. Everyone wants LTE as it has been the buzzword for the past few years. As everyone is jumping onto the LTE bandwagon, it is getting over saturated, leaving 4G faster.

      Because those of us commenting on this post are probably with AT&T, not t-mobile

      Ha, me too. LTE speeds have been pathetic recently.

      But 4G HSPA+ seems to drain the battery a lot faster, so I stick with 4G LTE.
