AT&T Converts 50 More Markets to LTE between Now and the End of the Year

AT&T today announced it's roll-out plans for the remainder of the year.

Five New markets have access to LTE. Those markets are Ruston, La.; New Bern, N.C.; State College, Pa.; Georgetown, S.C.; and Jayuya, P.R.

AT&T also expanded the availability of LTE in the existing markets of Atlanta, Ga.; Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and Shreveport, La.; Oxford, Miss.; Albany, N.Y.; and San Juan and Guayama, P.R.

AT&T named 50 additional markets where it will provide LTE before the close of 2013.

Some of those markets include Fairbanks, Ak.; Hawaii (Big Island); Jackson, Mich; Fargo, N.D.; and Elmira, N.Y. The company is still on track to cover 270 million POPs in more than 400 markets by the end of the year.

AT&T says its LTE 4G build-out will be functionally complete by the summer of 2014. AT&T's footprint will cover 300 million POPs by the end of 2014.
