AT&T has announced that it will be expanding its 4G LTE network to twelve new markets in the near future. The first of these markets will go live in April, followed by more in May and the rest over the course of the summer.
The company’s Monday press release focused on the addition of Cleveland, Ohio to its 4G LTE network, but other markets include Naples, Florida; Bloomington, Lafayette, and Muncie, Indiana; Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana; St. Louis, Missouri; Staten Island, New York; Akron and Canton, Ohio; and Bryan-College Station, Texas.
“AT&T customers in Cleveland can look forward to even faster mobile Internet speeds very soon, on our leading lineup of smartphones and devices,” said Larry Evans, vice president and general manager, AT&T Ohio and western Pennsylvania. “We’re excited to bring Cleveland all that 4G LTE has to offer. Our teams will be working hard across the city toward our upcoming launch.”
AT&T, of course, touted its dual-4G LTE and HSPA+ networks, as well as low latency and a fantastic lineup of 4G devices. With the company supposedly phasing out its old 2G network, more 4G markets can only be a good thing.
