    Default AT&T Turns on 4G LTE in Another Handful of U.S. Cities


    Over the last couple of days, AT&T has turned on 4G LTE coverage in another handful of cities in the United States, allowing even more subscribers with ultra-fast 4G LTE-enabled smartphones to take advantage of the network.

    Those lucky cities include:

    • Abilene, Texas
    • Albemarle, North Carolina
    • Alexandria, Louisiana
    • Columbus, Mississippi
    • Greenville, North Carolina
    • Logan, Utah
    • Morehead City, North Carolina
    • Morristown, Tennessee
    • Murray, Kentucky
    • Rolla, Missouri
    • Sandusky, Ohio
    • Vidalia, Georgia
    • Waycross, Georgia
    • Yazoo City, Mississippi

    Many of these cities are included in the long list of 50 U.S. cities that AT&T promised would have 4G LTE by the end of 2013 back in August.

    While AT&T's 4G LTE network isn't as massive as Verizon's, AT&T does boast a large 4G HSPA+ network, which subscribers will drop down to if 4G LTE isn't in range.

    Although, 4G LTE offers a theoretical download speed of around 100Mb/s, the unfortunate realities of network congestion make those numbers closer to around 20-60Mb/s.

    Many of Apple's latest devices, including the iPhone 5, iPad Mini, and iPad with retina display can take advantage of AT&T's ultra-fast 4G LTE network.

    I keep seeing this, but it's still not true. 100Mbps is simply not possible with what AT&T has deployed right now regardless of congestion. 30/60 Mbps is close to your maximum in 5/10MHz areas. Until we see 15MHz channels or 3x3 MIMO, the theoretical max is about 40/80 Mbps with zero congestion.

    I understand what you're saying, technically.

    But the theoretical speeds are just that. Theoretical speeds. Not necessarily realistic. This is where the numbers come from; Apple themselves:
