Now that Verizon has finished their initial LTE rollout, it’s time for AT&T to kick into hyperdrive and play a little catch-up. Today, the company is working to do just that;  AT&T has lit up 35 new LTE markets and is expanding in 17 others. Without further ado, here’s the immense list of new LTE markets:

  • Pine Bluff, AR
  • Searcy, AR
  • Chico-Oroville, CA
  • Grand Junction, CO
  • Silverthorne, CO
  • Homosassa Springs, FL
  • Palatka, FL
  • Milledgeville, GA
  • Valdosta, GA
  • Lafayette, LA
  • Morgan City, LA
  • New Iberia, LA
  • Cape Cod, MA
  • New Ulm, MN
  • Corinth-New Albany, MS
  • Greenwood-Cleveland, MS
  • Grenada, MS
  • Meridian, MS
  • Cape Girardeau, MO
  • Atlantic City-Toms River, NJ
  • Batavia, NY
  • Dunn, NC
  • Lawton, OK
  • Dillon, SC
  • Midland, TX
  • Odessa, TX
  • Sherman-Denison, TX
  • Victoria, TX
  • St. Croix, US Virgin Islands
  • St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands
  • Bremerton, WA
  • Moses Lake, WA
  • Yakima, WA
  • Beckley, WV
  • Oak Hill, WV

As you can see, these new LTE markets are going to affect a lot of people. But wait, there’s more! AT&T also decided to expand in 17 existing LTE markets. Here’s that list:

  • Mobile, AL expansion (Bay Minette)
  • Los Angeles, CA expansion (North Sunset)
  • Boulder, CO expansion (Longmont)
  • Jacksonville, FL expansion (western Nassau County)
  • Tallahassee, FL expansion (Leon County)
  • Atlanta, GA expansion (Spalding County, Griffin)
  • Bowling Green, KY (Muhlenberg County, Ohio County, Butler County)
  • Duluth-Superior, MN expansion (Cloquet, I-35)
  • Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN expansion
  • Starkville, MS expansion (West Point)
  • Southern NJ Shore Points, NJ expansion
  • Fayetteville, NC expansion (Fort Bragg)
  • Philadelphia, PA expansion (Bordentown)
  • Philadelphia, PA expansion (Gloucester)
  • Philadelphia, PA expansion (Pottstown)
  • Columbia, SC (Newberry)
  • San Antonio & Corpus Christi, TX expansion (I-37 corridor)

The competition between the carriers and their LTE networks is really beginning to heat up with Verizon still in the lead in terms of coverage. AT&T is quickly gaining, though, and Sprint is trying to push new LTE markets out as fast as it can. T-Mobile is way behind in the coverage department, but if the company can roll out LTE-Advanced before anybody else then it may have a shot at gaining a leg up on the competition. Right now, we’re just going to have to wait and see how things pan out with the carriers and their LTE networks.

How many of you are affected by these new and expanded markets?
