  • Florence-Muscle Shoals, AL

  • Gallup, NM
  • Brownsville-Harlingen, TX
  • McAllen, TX
  • Tri-Cities, WA
  • Salinas-Seaside-Monterey, CA expansion (King City)
  • Atlanta, GA expansion (Fayette County)
  • Atlanta, GA expansion (Alpharetta, north Fulton County)
  • Boston, MA expansion (New Bedford)

  • Allentown-Bethlehem, PA expansion (Easton) - Note: Market name now Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton.
  • Providence, RI expansion (Providence & Kent Counties)
  • Cheyenne/Laramie, WY expansion (several cities)

AT&T also provided a nice little infographic (we'll spare you the scrolling) with some interesting stats about the US's 2nd-largest LTE network. Seems that AT&T's LTE will cover the vast majority of Americans by year-end 2014, which is something to look forward to.

AT&T was also recently rated the nation's fastest LTE network (again), though I find its overall coverage still lags significantly behind Verizon's.
