  • AT&T Fires Up 4G LTE in Five More Cities, Expands Others


    Within the last couple of weeks, AT&T brought more 4G LTE cellular coverage to its customers. Tuesday, AT&T continues rolling out their 4G LTE cellular network in five more cities. They have also expanded existing 4G LTE cellular coverage in some locations where AT&Tís 4G LTE was already available.

    AT&Tís 4G LTE is now available in the following five cities:

    • Oxford, Mississippi
    • Tucson, Arizona
    • Melbourne, Florida
    • Springfield, Massachusetts
    • Green Bay, Wisconsin

    AT&T has also expanded their 4G LTE cellular coverage in the following locations:

    • Phoenix, Arizona
    • New Brunswick, New Jersey
    • Salt Lake City, Utah
    • Los Angeles, California

    As AT&Tís 4G LTE coverage map grows, AT&T gains more potential subscribers, so itís great to see the network continue to grow. In locations where 4G LTE coverage is not available, iPhone 5 users can drop down to a 4G HSPA+ network, which offers up to 14.4mb/s downlink rather than 4G LTEís potential 100mb/s downlink. The iPhone 4S can use this network as well, but does not have the hardware for 4G LTE. These figures, of course, assume perfect network conditions and arenít realistic in real-world usage.

    In other related news, AT&T has also today rolled out a new free Wi-Fi hotzone in Chicago, Illinois for the people along the cityís popular North Michigan Avenue.

    Has AT&T's 4G LTE hit your area yet?

      I did go to Verizon on my iPad mini and AT&T released LTE in my area that day. The AT&T LTE speed test on my iPhone 5 smokes my Verizon LTE on my mini. I would say hang in their. Also another interesting note, both networks drop off of LTE for no apparent reason. AT&T falling back to HSPA+ 4G and Verizon falling back to CDMA 3G. AT&T wins that speed test hands down. Also I like AT&T on my phone because when I use it as a hot spot it does not stop down loading when I get a voice call where Verizon does. On the mini however that does not matter.

      Yep. In San Diego the speed varies between 25-28mbps and 45-55mbs d/l with a mere 6-8mbps and 15-25mbps u/l. Using speed test.net. I've pretty much always got about exactly half of at&fail's claimed speeds on any given network. That being said. Downloading at 55mbps is pretty unreal for ota speeds. (All LTE IP5)

      Why would they do some place of 50k people and skip covering WAY more people by expanding LA's coverage or any of the other places they went to?

      The US has a population of 311 million people and some change. 1 million people is only .3% of the population.
