Well, it looks like the folks at AT&T are starting to realize they need to begin cranking out the updates for their 4G LTE network. Being way behind Verizon's rollout is one thing, but taking forever to add more is another. Today they've announced an additional 12 markets will see 4G LTE speeds starting Sunday, April 8th.

They've started to increase the speed at which they are updating markets and networks, so that is a good thing. Verizon already covers over 200 million people and growing every week or so, and AT&T appears to be starting to update at the same rate. Today we've learned multiple markets in Texas, Missouri, and Florida will all be getting the green light from AT&T.

AT&T's coverage might still be slightly limited, but it is growing everyday. New markets include: Bloomington and Muncie, Indiana as well as Bryan-College Station, Texas. Other markets to follow are St. Louis, Missouri; Naples, Florida; Lafayette, Indiana; Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana; Akron, Canton, and Cleveland, Ohio; and Staten Island, and New York City. They have some great LTE capable phones. The HTC One X coming soon will be one awesome AT&T 4G LTE device and if you haven't seen our review of the Tegra 3 version check it out below.

    Wow!  12 new markets.  That’s almost has many as Verizon’s already 200+ markets… soon to be 400+ markets.

    I use my phone to take a photo of my clients at my hair salon before and after their appointment, and then I send it to them at home (or on their own smartphone). It’s no different than the entertainment venues do and it costs relatively little (no printing). I’m on AT&T’s 4G LTE network with huge data cap so I’m good all month.
