AT&T brings 4G LTE service to a handful of cities across the U.S.

America’s second largest carrier, AT&T, has just announced new markets which will be getting its 4G LTE signals. The carrier has also expanded coverage in two cities. This new batch of expansion comes as the carrier is looking to gain a substantial boost in marketshare with its blazing fast LTE networks. The carrier enjoys the privilege of being one of the second largest LTE networks in the U.S. only behind Verizon.

The likes of Sprint and T-Mobile are far behind, so they’re not threats in this segment at the moment. Have a close look at the list below to see if your cities are included in the list.

  • Yuma, Ariz.
  • Eureka, Calif.
  • Elkhart-Goshen, Ind.
  • Traverse City, Mich.
  • Ogdensburg-Massena, N.Y., (includes Lisbon, Massena, Norfolk, Ogdensburg, Rensselaer Falls, Waddington and Routes 37, 56 and 812)
  • Plattsburgh, N.Y.
  • Wenatchee, Wash.

The regions where the carrier expanded its LTE coverage are the following:

  • Reno, Nev. (now includes Truckee and Grass Valley, Calif.)
  • Sweetwater, Texas (now includes portions of Merkel, Tye and Abilene)

We expect the carrier to bring more regions under its 4G LTE umbrella in the coming weeks. AT&T recently launched carrier segregation in Chicago with support for LTE-A networks, although adoption is pretty low at the moment due to lack of compatible hardware. We can expect the carrier to expand these networks further beyond Chicago in the coming months.

  1. Yeah. And with all the “don’t trust Chinese infrastructure providers” going on, I wonder who is providing all the 4G and LTE infrastructure now.

  2. I have given hopes actually. You guys will probably get the next thing after LTE and we will get 4G! 😀

  3. Sheesh. So it’s probably going to be a LONG time before you guys ever advance to LTE, since 4G comes first, yeah?

  4. Yep. currently only 4 cities in India has 4G that is being provided by Airtel. But the service is only limited to using internet via a USB modem. Can’t get a mobile connection with 4G internet. 🙁

  5. Dude, let me tell you, AT&T’s customer service is terrible. If there’s a problem or you ask for a credit because your service was out for x amount of days, don’t expect to talk to someone with a brain.

  6. We have 3G services, so the best data speed we get is of that speed. But the coverage is limited. And not all carrier provide service everywhere in India.

  7. Indeed. They’ll lose out on even more profits if they don’t do it soon. T-Mobile has a massive expansion coming by the end of this year, as they bought a decent chunk of spectrum from Verizon.

  8. Even though spectrum was allocated, there is still a bunch of red tape to get through in India. And I thought we had a lot of red tape in America, sheesh!

  9. I envy you people. There is still no signs of LTE being introduced in my country (India). Although the spectrum has been allocated.

  10. Finally. The company is just losing out on profits by not providing coverage. It still needs to expand a lot.

  11. I read somewhere that you can get better customer service by pressing the Spanish option on the phone, and most of the time, you’ll get someone that is bilingual who can speak English quite well.

  12. I wouldn’t hold your breath with their customer service. My SIL has att and she says their customer service is the worse. Around here no 4G LTE with ATT, but Verizons is GREAT.

  13. Well, AT&T hasn’t brought 4G LTE anywhere near where I live, so I guess I will just keep on trucking with Verizon for now. It’s a shame, too, because I hear the AT&T around here has better customer service than the local Verizon.
