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.
