Perhaps you've noticed tantalizing flickers of AT&T 4G LTE on your handset in recent weeks. That's a sure sign something about to break loose, and now it has. AT&T is firing up LTE in 22 new markets and expanding coverage in 10 others. Most of the new markets are mid-size cities, which really tells you how far along AT&T is in its rollout.


Ma Bell is claiming that its LTE service now covers more than 200 million people, but Verizon is still way out ahead. Big Red has LTE in over 400 markets. AT&T LTE coverage is now available in these new markets:

  • Batesville, AR
  • Blytheville, AR
  • Forrest City, AR
  • Colorado Springs, CO
  • Clewiston, FL
  • Blackfoot, ID
  • Idaho Falls, ID
  • Pocatello, ID
  • Rexburg, ID
  • Columbus, IN
  • Fort Wayne, IN
  • Seymour, IN
  • Muskegon, MI
  • Vineland, NJ
  • Farmington, NM
  • Wooster, OH
  • Miami, OK
  • Williamsport, PA
  • Texarkana, TX
  • Heber, UT
  • Olympia, WA
  • Spokane, WA

The expanded markets are :

  • Huntsville, AL (Madison & Limestone Counties)
  • Montgomery, AL (Elmore & Lowndes Counties)
  • Jonesboro, AR (Paragould)
  • Gainesville, FL (Levy County)
  • Atlanta, GA (several counties to the south and west)
  • Harrisburg & York, PA (along I-83)
  • Florence, SC (Darlington)
  • DFW, TX (Hillsboro)
  • Richmond, VA (Northern Neck)

So go forth and enjoy the speedy cellular data, but mind the data cap. Update: AT&T pinged us to let us know about some more markets not originally in the PR.

    Why did everyone stop reporting on Verizon's new markets? Are they advancing too quickly? lol

      I don't think they've expanded in a while. If anything it's a small number of new/expanded markets.

    AT&T also turned on their LTE in Kennewick-Richland-Pasco, WA (Tri-Cities). I don't know why it's not on their website
