AT&T Expands its 4G LTE Footprint to Over 20 New Markets

AT&T made a huge push to expand its 4G LTE service last year, and it’s not showing any signs of slowing down in 2014. The carrier lit up over 20 new high-speed markets across the country today.

The network’s new 4G markets include El Centro and Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario, CA; Jasper, IN; Cedar Rapids, IA; Danville, Richmond and Somerset, KY; Cadillac and Niles-Benton Harbor, MI; Tunica, MS; East Liverpool, OH; Erie and New Castle, PA; Barre and Burlington, VT; Wheeling, WV; La Crosse, WI; and parts of Puerto Rico.

While Verizon still boasts the most LTE coverage—blanketing almost its entire network in 4G LTE service—AT&T has come out on top in number of speed tests over the past few years including our own., though T-Mobile argues its network is now the fastest. Of course, carrier speeds often vary from region to region, but at least this way more people will have a choice when it comes to 4G LTE.
