AT&T Doubles 4G LTE Coverage In 2012
AT&T is continuing its aggressive rollout of its 4G LTE network. Earlier this week, the company announced new markets that would soon be receiving LTE coverage. Today, the wireless carrier is adding a few more markets to this list.
With the recent announcements, customers in the following areas will also be able to access 4G LTE service through AT&T:
- Columbia , South Carolina
- Charleston, South Carolina
- Saratoga and Saratoga Springs, New York
- Pensacola, Florida
- Fairfield County, Connecticut
- Twin Cities, Minnesota
In all, AT&T now offers 4G LTE coverage to more than 150 million people and covers 103 markets across the United States. This coverage is more than double what AT&T offered at the end of last year, and the wireless carrier isn't done yet—more expansion is planned through the end of the year.
By the end of 2013, AT&T plans to offer 4G LTE service to 250 million people. Looking even further ahead, AT&T plans to provide 300 million people with LTE service by the end of 2014.
