AT&T Names First Five LTE Launch Cities
AT&T today announced that Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio will be the first markets to have access to its forthcoming Long Term Evolution network later this summer. AT&T said it will add 10 more markets to its LTE footprint by the end of the year, but it didn't name those markets. AT&T hopes to cover 70 million Americans in those 15 markets with LTE by the end of the year. The company also said it will have 20 "4G" capable devices available by the end of the year, with some of them being LTE-enabled. AT&T didn't say exactly when the LTE network would launch, but it did note that it continues to invest in its HSPA+ network as mobile broadband alternative until LTE is available in more markets. AT&T also indicated that it continues to update its base stations with enhanced backhaul for improved speeds, and will have two-thirds of its sites updated by the end of the year.
