    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.

    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.
