AT&T has spread their LTE market seeds and added six of them. This came after the big deployment from Verizon. This is a normal thing to do if they want to keep the step with their opponents. AT&T revealed a plan for adding 77 more LTE markets in their future plans.
From now on, six more AT&T based markets gained access to its LTE 4G network, this makes it total of 182. In the meantime, seven of the existing markets have gained expanded LTE coverage. This company has said that they don’t have any intention to stop here and unveiled plans for 77 additional market fields which will receive this mega fast Wi-Fi connection. The plan indicates the end of the summer as a goal to reach this number.
They gained some speed to catch up with their competitor Verizon Wireless which now offers their LTE in around 500 markets and they are planning to wrap up that number of deployments somewhere in the middle of this year. This fast wireless connection has become a very critical selling point which was indicated from the increased user awareness over this 4G LTE network.
AT&T has announced that they have the highest speed of 4G LTE and represents the HSPA+ network also called 4G, as a part of their high speed coverage. AT&T is still further ahead of Sprint and T-Mobile which recently has began to deploy this network.
The new included markets are:
- Santa Rosa-Petaluma, Calif.
- Rocky Mount-Wilson, N.C.
- Orangeburg, S.C
- Napa, Calif.
- Kalamazoo, Mo.
- Jackson, Tenn.
