AT&T has once again returned with some news on the 4G LTE expansions. This time around the new LTE coverage is coming for those in a handful of markets across six states. Those six states include Arkansas, California, Georgia, Minnesota, North Dakota and Ohio. Basically, if you happen to have coverage available -- now seems like a good time to make sure you have an LTE handset at the ready.
Diving right in, how about we begin with the newly added Arkansas coverage. This coverage includes the Hot Springs area and extends into parts of Hot Springs Village, Jessieville, Lake Hamilton, Paron, Piney, Pleasant Hill and Rockwell.
The California coverage includes Visalia-Porterville and the coverage for Georgia deals with Jackson County. Specifically, the Georgia coverage includes parts of Jefferson and Commerce as well as expanded coverage for those in Athens. The Georgia LTE coverage has also been expanded into Oconee and Barrow counties.
Those in Minnesota will now have AT&T LTE coverage available in Brainerd Lakes and Grand Rapids. Shifting to the North Dakota coverage and we see LTE being added for those in Minot. And last but certainly not least, the newly added LTE coverage for Ohio includes Mount Vernon.
With the coverage now being available, some may start looking towards an upgraded handset. That being the case, AT&T has recently kicked off a half-off smartphone sale. Not to mention, the Galaxy Note 8.0 recently launched with a $199 package deal price for those grabbing the tablet along with a smartphone.
