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.

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.

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.

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

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.
