AT&T LTE launches 11 new markets

ATT logo
Yesterday AT&T announced the launch of 4G LTE service in eleven new markets, which means the company now reaches over 200 million potential POPs with faster LTE service. Within AT&T’s press release they’ve expanded LTE service to the following areas; Dover, Del.; Leonardtown, Md.; Ocean City, Md.; Asheville, N.C.; Goldsboro, N.C.; Salem, Ore.; Culpeper, Va.; Roanoke, Va.; Longview, Wash.; Port Townsend-North Whidbey Island-Camano Island, Wash.; and Shelton, Wash. The latest deployment brings them up to 239 markets covered with LTE and they plan to have over 300 million people covered by the end of 2014. Although this is more than Sprint or T-Mobile offer, it’s still a far cry from the 497 markets Verizon has covering 95% of the population with 4G LTE service. To play catch up AT&T will be launching another 77 markets throughout the summer months and offers excellent wireless speed.
