AT&T’s 4G LTE Network: Coming to a City Near You

Faster mobile broadband speeds are on the way as AT&T continues its next-gen rollout.
AT&T’s 4G LTE Network: Coming to a City Near You

The era of 4G is upon us. The promise of increased mobile broadband speeds (up to 10 times faster than 3G, according to some claims) has the potential to wildly improve the way users work on mobile devices. When we look back on the impact 3G connectivity has had on the mobile workforce — as it brought users the power of the web anywhere and everywhere — it’s safe to say there will be an infinite number of new innovations made possible with 4G.

AT&T, one of the nation’s leading wireless carriers, started the rollout of its 4G LTE network in 2011 in 15 cities: Athens, Ga.; Atlanta; Baltimore; Boston; Charlotte, N.C.; Chicago; Dallas-Fort Worth; Houston; Indianapolis; Kansas City, Mo.; Las Vegas; Oklahoma City; San Antonio; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Washington, D.C.

But 2012 will see the company’s 4G network reach even more users across the country. AT&T recently announced 4G LTE availability in 11 more cities, reports GottaBeMobile.

The new cities on the list include some pretty densely populated locales: New York City; Austin, Texas; Chapel Hill, N.C.; Los Angeles; Oakland, Calif.; Orlando, Fla.; Phoenix; Raleigh, N.C.; San Diego; San Francisco and San Jose, Texas.

As 4G coverage goes, AT&T’s LTE rollout actually gives the company two layers of 4G connectivity. The company already has an active HSPA+ network, which it claims offers its users 4G speeds.

AT&T is working hard to expand 4G coverage across the nation, so expect to hear more announcements like this in 2012.
