AT&T continues to pursue an aggressive 4G LTE rollout strategy, activating towers in Missouri, Texas, and North Carolina over the past couple of days for a total of 16 new markets. It's all part of the carrier's larger plan to reach 250 million Americans with LTE coverage by the end of this year. AT&T's LTE network currently covers almost 200 million.

Here's a list of cities graced with AT&T's fastest this week:

  • Jacksonville, Texas
  • Manhattan, Kan.
  • Palestine, Texas
  • Sedalia, Mo.
  • Warrensburg, Mo.
  • Monroeville/Evergreen, Ala.
  • Vieques, Puerto Rico
  • Saginaw and Bay City, Mich.
  • Huntington, W.Va.
  • Ashland, Ky.
  • Beeville, Texas
  • Cookeville, Tenn.
  • Aberdeen, WA.
  • McMinnville, Tenn.
  • Durham, N.C.
  • Frankfort, Ky.

That's quite a geographically diverse collection of places. It's heartening to see AT&T paying attention to all parts of the country, rather than large metropolitan areas exclusively. The carrier was mum on future rollout plans, but you can bet we'll be covering them right here.
