Some people live in places that have had 4G LTE coverage for a long time now. Others don't. AT&T is steadily working to fill in the gaps in its network, and today it has announced the launch of 12 additional markets. This brings the total up to 488 nationwide.


Check the list below to see if your town has made the list.

This time the LTE fairy started in New York and Pennsylvania, then skipped about as she headed westward, eventually making the long jump all the way to Hawaii. If she missed your area this time around, just keep wishing, and hopefully she will stop by soon enough.

Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

    What's the point of having so much lte when you can't afford to go over 2gigs of data. On my tmobile plan I have the 2.5gig plan and I'm already at 2 gigs. I'm so glad I have tmobile and not att or verizon. Unless I couldn't get signal with tmobile I cannot see anyone paying the att prices.

      Seriously. I get that ATT/Verizon have better coverage, and I'm lucky I don't need it. But I know other people that need the same coverage as me, and they stick with ATT or Verizon. It makes no sense. I hit 2GB 6 days into my month

        Straight talk T-Mobile forever, sometimes I use more than 30GB a month. And I have speeds of 2MB Down 1MB up, I couldn't be happier with Straight Talk.

      Shared data plans get significantly more affordable the more people you add to them, especially if you bring your own device. But yes, being a single person on a plan with a subsidized phone is pricey.

      I have a 15GB share plan with 7 lines. Currently my monthly bill with AT&T is around $320. I have to say, I love the AT&T speeds. As for the data, I usually come right up to 14GB (once in awhile 14.5MB). It's not all that bad really. Plus, over the past year or so, the customer service has really improved.

        This is a great example of how shared plans benefit families. For those that have 1 line or 2 your screwed. I have 2 lines with T-Mobile with unlimited everything and data at 2.5gb then throttled after that. It comes out to about $80 before tax. So I'm happy. I get LTE and get about 28mbps every time

        Or you can get T-Mobile's family plan for almost half that with more data:

        50+30+10+10+10+10+10 = 130
        10+10+10+10+10+10+10 = 70
        2.5*7 = 17.5GB
        = $200 a month for 7 users with 2.5GB 4gLTE each (a total of 17.5GB Data) with Throttled Unlimited.

    Remember when AT&T was trying to buy T-Mobile, and one of the reasons they gave for trying to buy it was because without the merger they would have difficulty creating an LTE network?
