AT&T has announced another round of expansions in terms of their 4G LTE coverage. We saw a few announcements during the month of March and given the time of month we are currently sitting at, we suspect April will bring more of the same for the carrier. That being said, for today we have word of expansion in 14 markets which touch on parts of Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, Texas and Washington.

T-Mobile has had their UNcarrier announcement this morning and as we have seen -- it included details on LTE devices and LTE coverage as well as plans and even a brief mention of the upcoming advertising campaign. The intent here is to focus on the Android devices with LTE support, but we will mention that the advertising campaign will be western themed.
T-Mobile just unleashed tons of details on their future. With new "UNcarrier" unlimited plans, no contracts, the iPhone 5, HTC One and of course their 4G LTE network. In case you haven't been following along the "No More Mr. Nice Guy (or girl)" campaign is long over and the black leather-clad Bad Girl Carly commercials are only going to continue. Today T-Mobile confirmed their first 7 cities with 4G LTE, and more than 200 million users can expect to have LTE in the next 6 months.
T-Mobile seems to have quite a bit going on at the moment, not the least of which is an event scheduled for a little later today. That event is said to be full of some big announcements, however it looks like we have already begun seeing some of them. For example, the LTE coverage has quietly been going live and we have seen those "UNcarrier" plans come available for individuals and family plans.
T-Mobile was planning to launch their 4G LTE network this month, however it looks like they have quietly flipped the switch in select cities. What we have seen is all unofficial at the moment and is said to have come by way of OpenSignal. For those not familiar with the name, OpenSignal is a Wi-Fi and signal-finder app for Android that uses crowdsourced data.
AT&T has flipped the 4G LTE switch for several additional markets. This latest includes select cities in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio and Tennessee. Some of this latest LTE announcement is for new coverage and some is simply expanding upon existing coverage. Beginning first with Alabama, this includes an expansion in and around Mobile.
T-Mobile will be making a lot of huge announcements at the events, many of which we have already heard about. We know that T-Mobile is planning on getting rid of phone subsidies, contracts, overages, and more. You can pay for your new smartphone in installments over the course of 25 months, and there will be more simplified plans for everyone.
