AT&T launches new 4G LTE markets

Today AT&T announced they’ve expanded their 4G LTE network coverage into several new markets. Customers can now take advantage of the latest network in Puerto Rico, Salt Lake City, Reading Pennsylvania and Albuquerque New Mexico. This brings AT&T’s total 4G LTE cover to 105 markets, which exceeds their goal of 100 LTE markets by the end of 2012. They plan to have their entire HSPA+ footprint upgraded to LTE by the end of next year. The latest rollout helps add to their total, but they’re still far behind Verizon that currently offers 4G LTE in 441 markets. Users in a 4G LTE area should expect a minimum of 5-12Mbps down and 2-5Mbps up.
