AT&T Brings LTE to Florida, Massachusetts
While Expanding LTE Coverage in Baltimore and DC
AT&T today announced that the company has expanded their LTE network into several new markets
, including Miami, West Palm Beach, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida -- as well as Worcester and a number of surrounding communities in Massachusetts. AT&T says they've also expanded coverage in the existing LTE markets of Baltimore and Washington, DC, and that their shiny-new LTE network is now available in portions of 51 markets covering over 74 million Americans. AT&T continues to play catch up to Verizon's more than 300 LTE markets, but now also has Sprint nipping at their heels after the company's fifteen market launch
. AT&T says they'll have all current HSPA-based markets upgraded to LTE by the end of 2013. Like Verizon, AT&T recently unveiled new shared family data plans
, which offer unlimited SMS and voice alongside a communal pool of cross-family and cross-device data.

call me cynical... but sprints was a bit of a press release this week wasn't it? (cites prior article).
Re: call me cynical... Sprints press release was a lot of fluff, from what people were actually receiving.
Edge Service Meanwhile, much of the ATT network, including Northern Michigan....continues with 2G Edge service
Re: Edge Service Eastern MI, and almost all of the UP. Large (rural) parts of Texas are similar.
Mobile Yeah. Hmm mobility. For AT&T and Sprint, only on major highways and metro areas. AT&T isn't as bad as it used to be. Still too many EDGE areas. I'll stay with Verizon.

Not impressed... Hopefully the pressure of Sprint's LTE deployment catching up will pressure AT&T more than Verizon being so far in front of them.
AT&T is still spending resources on HSPA+ and 3G.
Verizon isn't spending money on 3G expansion.
Sprint is spending the majority of its resources on LTE, not 3G.
Phili?! Philadelphia, freaking please.
Or at least switch to HSPA+ 42 and get some backhaul up in here.
Re: still unimpressed and i still have 1 bar of service for ATT, my friend across the street has no signal.
come on ATT...
