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.

    so far prices have been the same.. no reason to increase prices if they gather more customer as they increase coverage..

    It's Aberdeen, WA, not Mississippi. Unless there's both. But yeah fix that. Also, Santa Barbara, Ventura county, CA

    • James Bueller

      Jeez! A lot of errors in this story. Our apologies.
      EDIT: Fixed.

      Santa Barbara and Ventura are not currently official markets. It's probably pre-launch testing. An announcement will likely come in a month or two. I just wish they'd cover the LA / Ventura county line area (Conejo Valley).

    Even Vieques has LTE.

    usually if sprint beats someone its because the market kind of sucks.. lol

    I just saw an advertisement from AT&T saying they now offer 4GLTE to all of Ventura County. I'm in Oxnard and did a speed test 168ms ping, 1.5Mbps download, .74Mbps upload.
    I think Metro PCS and Sprint are much faster.
