The carrier is also expanding the existing footprints in Phoenix, Arizona; New Brunswick/Middlesex County, New Jersey; Salt Lake City, Utah and Los Angeles, California. AT&T’s “4G” wireless network, which includes HSPA+ areas in addition to 4G LTE cities, now covers more than 285 million people across the United States.
