AT&T has announced that the company's LTE network has been extended into another seven markets: Jackson, TN; Kalamazoo, MI; Napa, CA; Orangeburg, SC; Rocky Mount, NC; Santa Rosa-Petaluma, CA; and Wilson, NC. The company this week also announced that they'll be bringing LTE to another major slew of markets by the end of the summer (you can find a full list here). AT&T says that the company's LTE network is currently live in some 182 markets. AT&T hopes to reach 250 million potential customers with LTE by the end of 2013, and 300 million total potential customers by the end of 2014.
AT&T still has EDGE ? Must be in some pretty rural areas.
When it comes to cable/dsl/uverse, i'm labeled as rural, but ATT has me listed in their 3g/4g/fake LTE coverage.. The speeds kill standard 3g, but are not what people think of 4g.. yet i'm rural Now if they would only roll out a fixed location service with a reasonable cap to price ratio and i'd be grinning like a wabbit
It's because if T-mobile does meet it's deadline you will have Verizon and T-mobile with wide LTE coverage and AT&T with pools of money just looking dead obvious.
T-mobile wide coverage? hardly. Even when their rollout is complete they state they will cover 200 million Americans. There are 315 million Americans. So that's 35% that can't get t-mobile service. What does Verizon covers? 98%. This is why Verizon will ALWAYS be better and have more customers than t-mobile..

Re: Leave it to the Death Star
-_- yeah. Verizon also has the best service plans and phones. oh wait.
Cool. I wasn't saying anything about Verizon negatively and it's general knowledge that Verizon has a superior network. I was poking fun at AT&T who can't seem to deploy LTE fast enough and to add insult to injury have a budget carrier have 200 million Americans by 2013 only shows how slow and inefficient they are.
Right, both carriers will have the majority of their LTE networks covering already serviced 3G areas by the end of this year. Verizon by mid 2013 if I am not mistaken. This is what I mean't by "wide LTE coverage".
Don't say "won't". You will have AT&T 3G throughout all of the GSM/EDGE-only areas in Michigan very soon. Think in terms of weeks and months, not years. Trust me, I know of which I speak. In fact, you can see work being done on many towers right now.
