You can’t knock the expansion of a 4G LTE network.
Per 9to5Mac, wireless carrier AT&T announced on Thursday that it has further expanded its 4G LTE network coverage in the United States.
The latest market additions notably include Phoenix, Ariz., as well as parts of Avondale, Goodyear, and Litchfield Park. The carrier said it invested nearly US$700 million in Arizona wireless and wireline networks from 2009 through 2012.
Coverage also thickened in the east, where AT&T’s 4G LTE now blankets Hartford County, Conn., as well as parts of Avon, Bloomfield, Enfield, Farmington, Granby, New Britain, Simsbury, Suffield, West Hartford, Windsor, and Windsor Locks.
AT&T also switched on 4G LTE in Lincoln, Neb. and Lubbock, Texas and brought its total number of live markets to 147. The carrier revealed it now offers LTE to 174 million people across the United States, with plans to reach 300 million people by year-end 2014.
Earlier this week, AT&T also announced three new markets and a few more expansions in the following areas:
- Salinas-Seaside-Monterey, Calif.
- Tallahassee, Fla.
- Lawrence, Kan.
- Knoxville expansion (La Follette)
- Knoxville expansion (Athens)
- Memphis expansion (Tunica):
