    Nice to see some Mass love in there...too bad I will never go back to AT&T again in my life haha

  • rob356

    Providence, RI already has 4G LTE. Check the coverage map. I hope they meant they are expanding the coverage.

    Hopefully they keep expanding here in Maryland. They're already doing a pretty good job IMO, just need some LTE in Annapolis.

    The postal abbreviation for Arkansas is AR, not AK (Alaska).

      Whoops, thanks for that. Fixed :)

    Hopefully, the next Nexus phone is LTE. After having the Google Nexus, I can't go back. No LTE, but it works like a dream on HSPA+

    I wish they would follow a similar roadmap to Verizon. My fairly large California city had Verizon LTE in 6 months of launch. No word on AT&T LTE yet.

    AT&T's LTE network is ridiculously fast where you can get it but even in Los Anegeles (one of the earliest markets to "go live") it's pretty uncommon to actually get an LTE signal.

    • Superguy

      Agreed. I live in Baltimore ... one of the earliest markets, and LTE is flaky around here too. It's great when it works, but its frustrating NOT to see the LTE icon when I'm in a known LTE area.

      I must say, that I'm disappointed with building penetration. Verizon does a lot better in that area too. My life would be a lot easier if Verizon were a GSM based carrier.

    AT&T LTE is pretty brilliant in the SF Bay Area. Congrats to all those who live in the new cities. Go Sacramento, Bakersfield, Modesto, Salinas, and Monterey!

    • Matthew Fry

      Salinas is a pretty small town to be a up and coming LTE market. Kind of weird in my opinion. Granted I haven't been to Salinas in about a decade, but it was a pretty tiny town with a big rodeo last time I was there.

  • Superguy

    Salt Lake has been on the map as "coming soon" for quite awhile, but isn't listed on the map at all. What's up with that?

  • fijisiv

    Once again, Oregon gets the finger. I guess the 590k in Portland can take solace in the fact that the 40k in Wilkes-Barre, PA will have LTE before the end of the year or that the 10k in Lawrenceburg, TN have been sporting LTE since June.
    It wouldn't be so frustrating if there was some pattern to it all. At this point is looks like AT&T execs are throwing darts, maybe picking places they have estates, "hey I have a college buddy in Wilkes-Barre", "my parents live in Lawrenceburg".

  • VonLaserface

    happy to see the twin cities finally on the list. I was getting picking up LTE at the MSP Int'l airport back in July but i wasnt sure how far along they were.
