AT&T expanded its 4G LTE network to 11 new regions today, expanding its high-speed cellular network to a total of 347 markets across the country. The news came as a surprise, as none of the new markets come from the list of pre-announced regions AT&T promised to blanket in LTE service earlier this year.
New additions to AT&T’s 4G LTE network include popular east coast vacation spot Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, as well as Charleston, WV; Rome and Cedartown, GA; Enid, Ponca City, Ardmore, Ada and Durant, OK; and Ressellville and Arkadelphia, AR.
AT&T previously announced its intentions to bring its 4G LTE service to 300 million people in the U.S. by the end of 2014 and, considering the rapid rate the carrier has been expanding, it looks right on track.. Despite trailing behind Verizon when it comes to the scope of its 4G network, AT&T boasts the fastest cellular speeds in the country, according to a studies conducted by both PCMag and TechHive.
