    Default AT&T and Verizon Expand Their 4G LTE Networks Prior to iPhone 5 Launch


    The iPhone community is excited to get the iPhone 5 in their hands, but it is still a large problem that 4G LTE won’t be available everywhere, as it is one of the iPhone 5’s most exciting new features. Good news for some extra cities today is that AT&T and Verizon appear to have expanded their 4G LTE networks just before tomorrow’s official launch of the iPhone 5.

    Expanded Verizon LTE:
    • Asheville, North Carolina
    • Arizona (southern area "includes Interstate 10 north to include Marana and east to Vail; the community of Sonoita; and along Highway 86 west to Three Points.")
    • Bemidji, Minnesota

    • Quad Cities, Iowa
    • Rochester, Minnesota
    • San Diego, California
    • Springfield, Ohio
    • Sterling, Illinois
    The iPhone 5’s 4G LTE support boasts theoretical speeds of 100Mb/s, but more realistically users get anywhere from about 9-18Mb/s (give or take depending on network conditions) for download and upload speeds on AT&T and Verizon. It’s a great improvement over the iPhone 4S’s small speed boost on AT&T's network or the iPhone 4’s 3G network by a long shot.

    With AT&T and Verizon expanding these networks to more locations, it gives iPhone 5 buyers more incentive to use their phones to their full potential in their own areas. AT&T and Verizon are both expected to open even more doors to their 4G LTE network by the end of 2012 and AT&T hopes to complete their expansion by the end of 2013.

    If you’re looking to buy an iPhone 5, Verizon is probably the best carrier to go with because they have so much more 4G LTE coverage across the United States.

    Umm yes the iPhone 4S does.
    What you have there doesn't say anything. HSPA+ = "Faster HSDPA/HSUPA" on 850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz BANs.

    That obviously isn't a full list because AT&T sent me an email yesterday saying LTE 4G coverage has now been added to Bakersfield, CA

    sad that verizons 4g was already like 5x bigger than at&t's. Now their opening it into markets twice as fast as at&t to boot. Makes me sad i have at&t and live in a town that probably wont get 4g untill the end of 2013.

    Look up the chipset used in the iPhone 4s. It's a Qualcomm chipset and it uses 3GPP features. It has HSPA+, speed be damned.

    They been added that one.

    Whoever keeps saying the iPhone doesn't support HSPA+ needs to research more before making such hideous comments. That was a selling point of the 4S when it came out. That's why AT&T users have the freaking 4g symbol already.

    AT&T just added seattle, WTF? well they better added it within 2 weeks cause that's when i plan on getting a 2 year contract with AT&T just cause of LTE. But i bet people don't realize that with that many iPhone 5 users on LTE your speed are gonna go down cause of soooo many people trafficking the LTE data, that's what the iPhone does to carrier's network

    You're dead wrong. That was one of the main new features of the 4S. Do some homework.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    No AT&T LTE in lindenhurst, New York.

    I would get Verizon, but I cant talk & surf the web at the time, something I do a lot on AT&T.
