AT&T 4G LTE goes live in a whole slew of new markets


As we’ve seen on many occasions before, AT&T is hard at work rolling out its 4G LTE network service across the US. Today, the carrier has announced a further 16 new markets plus an updated one. What that means for you iPhone-toting types is that there are now more locations you can make use of the iPhone 5’s 4th generation radio chip.

As reported by our mothership, Phonedog:

  • Binghamton, N.Y.
  • Carbondale-Marion, Ill. (also includes Benton, Carterville, Energy, Herrin, Johnston City, Murphysboro and West Frankfort)
  • Fort Pierce and Stuart, Fla.
  • Fort Smith, Ark. (also includes Alma, Barling, Clarksville, Greenwood, Knoxville, Lamar, Ozark and Van Buren as well as the surrounding areas of Arkoma, Muldrow, Pocola, Rock Island, Roland, Sallisaw and Spiro in Eastern Oklahoma)

All in all, it’s one of the most expansive single updates yet, and shows the carrier is determined to meet its plans of reaching over 300 million US consumers with its LTE coverage by the end of next year. It currently lies at around 250 million, with most major cities already seeing some flavorsome 4G action.
