Posted by at 11:11 am on August 21, 2013

AT&T has announced a moderate expansion of its LTE 4G network, as well as its build-out plans for the remainder of the year.

Beginning today, five new markets have access to LTE. Those markets are Ruston, La.; New Bern, N.C.; State College, Pa.; Georgetown, S.C.; and Jayuya, P.R. AT&T also expanded the availability of LTE in the existing markets of Atlanta, Ga.; Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and Shreveport, La.; Oxford, Miss.; Albany, N.Y.; and San Juan and Guayama, P.R. According to AT&T, its LTE 4G network is now available in 370 markets across the U.S., though it didn’t say how many POPs are currently covered.

Further, AT&T named 50 additional markets where it will provide LTE before the close of 2013. Some of those markets include Fairbanks, Ak.; Hawaii (Big Island); Jackson, Mich; Fargo, N.D.; and Elmira, N.Y. The company is still on track to cover 270 million POPs in more than 400 markets by the end of the year. AT&T says its LTE 4G build-out will be functionally complete by the summer of 2014, which is about a year behind a similar benchmark reached by Verizon Wireless.

AT&T’s footprint will cover 300 million POPs by the end of 2014.
