AT&T has announced the latest in terms of their 4G LTE network expansion. This of course, comes as a follow up to the report we recently mentioned which pegged the carrier as having the fastest LTE network speeds. Anyway, the expansion today deals with three states — Georgia, Tennessee and Virginia.
The coverage for Georgia is dealing with the Augusta area and the Macon area. AT&T has flipped the switch for those in Augusta and expanded in the Macon area. Specifically, those in Gray, Fort Valley and Warner Robins should now be seeing some additional LTE coverage. Next up is new coverage for those in Cleveland, Tennessee.
The third state with new coverage is Virginia. This comes as an expansion to existing coverage and will affect those in Norfolk as well as parts of Portsmouth and Virginia Beach. Also included in the Virginia expansion is the Hampton Roads area which is noted as including Newport News, Ft. Eustis, Poquoson and Hampton.
Basically, what this means is that if you live in any of those areas — now is a pretty good time to start considering an LTE capable device, whether it be smartphone or tablet. Or for that matter, if you already have an LTE capable device, now seems like a good time to start enjoying those faster speeds. AT&T has quite a few LTE devices already available and we are also waiting for the release of the HTC One.[via AT&T]
