AT&T extending 4G LTE network to 12 new markets in April

AT&T is still playing a severely slow game of catch-up with Verizon and their vast and quick 4G LTE rollout. They've just announced a couple of new markets that will soon be getting the fast 4G LTE speeds and we have all the details. According to AT&T, Cleveland will be up next to receive the update and that is coming soon. Then 11 other markets are going to get the blue switch flipped from AT&T too.

Like mentioned above, Cleveland is up first to receive the upgrade to AT&T 4G LTE and then another 11 markets will get the same treatment. This list below is where we can expect to start seeing LTE speeds although the announcement detailed this as coming soon. Stating the updates should start rolling out sometime in April, so users probably wont have LTE in these cities next week, but can expect them shortly.

- St. Louis, Missouri
- Naples, Florida
- Bloomington, Lafayette and Muncie, Indiana
- Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Lousiana
- Akron, Canton and Cleveland, Ohio
- Bryan-College Station, Texas
- Staten Island, New York City

AT&T has been slow to launch their 4G LTE network but these new locations will join the existing markets in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, Washington DC, and New York to name a few. With the new HTC One X (or One XL) coming soon to AT&T with 4G LTE we have a feeling these markets will launch before the end of April, just in time for the AT&T launch of the new HTC Flagship phone.

    Wow!  AT&T is adding a few more cities?
    Is that anything like the *ALREADY* 200 million people covered by Verizon’s nationwide 4G LTE?

    ATT is the only US carrier that supports 4G using HSPA+ and LTE technologies. This combination enhances the 4G. There will be more users of the ipad 3 to be waiting to go for ATT for a faster and more stable 4G experience on their compatible devices even if the device is outside of a 4G LTE area.
