AT&T Adds 7 New U.S. Cities to Their Expanding 4G LTE Coverage
AT&T, as a part of a summertime goal, has been expanding their 4G LTE cellular coverage in the United States rapidly to get as many subscribers in range of the ultra-fast wireless speeds as possible.
The carrier has Wednesday afternoon announced that seven additional locations in the United States can now tap into the power of AT&T's 4G LTE cellular network. Those lucky seven places include:
- Brainerd Lakes, Minnesota
- Grand Rapids, Minnesota
- Hot Springs, Arkansas
- Jackson County, Georgia
- Minot, North Dakota
- Mount Vernon, Ohio
- Visalia, California
4G LTE offers a theoretical download speed of around 100Mb/s; however, due to the unfortunate realities of network congestion, the download speeds on 4G LTE are more or less closer to 20-60Mb/s.
Many of Apple's latest devices, including the iPhone 5, iPad Mini, and iPad with retina display can take advantage of 4G LTE data speeds.

Does anyone else on AT&T w/ 4G LTE feel like its slower these last few days??? I think 3G is running better than 4G right now....

I think it's because they are still trying to work out the kinks in it. my speeds stay around the 20-30MB range and when they repair or test anything at night that's when it drops to around 4-10MB but that's only happened 3 times in the last 2 months.

I don't know about you but my speeds dropped from 55/15mbs to 25/5mbs around 3 days ago, which is back to launch speeds from October 2012.
Could be repairs, could be other carriers prepping their LTE launch. (Hopefully T-Mobile)

I only get LTE when im at work it seems. Hopefully AT&T expands just a bit more :]

Mine's been a bit slower, around 15/5mbps, normally it's 30/15mbps.

though the news is quite predictable to me and i know soon it will cover all to its rapidly growing range .. the same expansion of the technology will also be helpful in providing a full fledged performance out of it .. which is seeming slower now a day..
