It's that time again. AT&T has been busy adding and upgrading several markets with high-speed LTE. This round of upgrades seems to focus a bit more attention to the Northeast, particularly in the New York and New Jersey areas. Still, quite a few other locations are popping up around the country. With most new spots checking in with populations below 100,000 people, and some below the 10k mark, AT&T is closing in on its target to finish covering the United States with LTE by the end of this year.

    NJ isn't even close to having lte in suburbs.

    Sensorly maps show an entirely different story (South Jersey shore shows poor coverage, same with Dayton and Flagstaff). Who is lying?

    The first 2 cities in SD are 2 towns with populations below 20K? What about our largest cities Sioux Falls and Rapid City?

    • chad

      I can understand Brookings being it is a college town but Watertown wtf? Yeah Sioux Falls should be first on that list due to population size.

        My daughter has informed me she is now getting LTE in Sioux Falls.

        • Justin W

          I am not, nor are my family members with LTE devices (iPhone 5S's, actually). She's most likely getting HSPA+, which is shown as 4G on their devices. It's pretty quick, but I'd much rather have LTE. I'm surprised we still don't have LTE in Sioux Falls yet - it's gotta be close though.

            between 41st and 57th on marion rd in Sioux falls I get LTE on my GS5

  • Dominick White

    Wow they finally come to auburn NY... I guess my friends with 4g phones on att will be very happy

  • Rob Cook

    The more that I read these expansion lists the more that it reinforces that the networks add LTE to smaller towns not out of some altruistic means but because there is no real infrastructure in place to have to upgrade. Duluth, Mn gets LTE before Des Moines, Iowa, sad... Someday living in the capital city of a state will be worthwhile when it comes to getting the 4Gees, until then I get to experience LTE when I go on vacation at my parents cabin...

      Part of what you're saying is definitely true. I'm not on Verizon, but I know VZW LTE coverage recently came to a barely populated area near me, most likely because it was about to get 3G anyway, and it was just cheaper to skip ahead.

      Just playing devils advocate here, but I think the installation crews are sent out to hit several markets at once, and sometimes the small locations just finish before larger spots.
