Continuing with the efforts to expand their 4G LTE coverage across the United States, AT&T has today opened their 4G LTE network to four more markets. 4G LTE gives users a hypothetical download speed of up to 100 megabits per second, although realistically, you may only see about 20-50, which still outperforms many home Wi-fi networks.
People in the following locations will now be able to connect to AT&Tís 4G LTE network using their iPhone 5, cellular iPad with retina display, or other 4G LTE-capable smartphone or tablet to take advantage of the faster cellular data speeds:
- Wilkes-Barre, Penn.
- Nashua, N.H.
- Grand Rapids, Mich.
- Auburn-Opelika, Ala.
AT&Tís 4G LTE network is not as large as Verizonís yet, however itís still way ahead of Sprint. AT&T also allows customers to drop back to 4G HSPA+, rather than 3G, when 4G LTE is no longer in range. Verizon and Sprint both only allow customers to drop back to 3G when 4G LTE is not in range.
Has AT&T brought 4G LTE near you yet?
