AT&T today announced a modest expansion of its LTE 4G footprint to smaller markets around the country. The network is available in more than a dozen new markets for the first time, and has also expanded its reach in several existing markets. Between last week and this week, new markets include Cullman, Decatur, and Huntsville, Ala.; Mountain Home, Ark.; Lake City and Ocala, Fla.; Kokomo, Ind.; Shreveport-Bossier City, La.; Flint and Lansing, Mich.; Biloxi-Gulfport, Miss.; Springfield, Mo.; Henderson, N.C.; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Athens, Corsicana, Huntsville, Lufkin-Nacogdoches, and Paris, Texas; Petersburg, Va.; Centralia, Wash.; and Morgantown, W.Va. Existing markets that now have greater LTE coverage include Phoenix and Tuscon, Ariz.; Little Rock, Ark.; Denver, Colo., Louisville, Ky.; Knoxville, Tenn.; Mount Vernon, Wash.; and a handful of others. According to AT&T, its LTE 4G network covers nearly 200 million POPs, and the company said it is on target to cover about 270 million POPs by the end of the year. By way of comparison, Verizon Wireless's LTE 4G network build-out is largely complete, Sprint's LTE 4G network is on target to reach 150 million POPs by summer, and T-Mobile's LTE 4G network will cover 100 million Americans by the middle of the year, and 200 million by the end of the year.
