AT&T Inc. has added three new 4G LTE markets Wednesday and expanded the faster data service in three more areas.
The new markets are:
And these are the districts that get expanded service:
Hartford, Conn. expansion (Waterbury/Meriden)
Mobile, Ala. expansion (Baldwin County)
Toledo, Ohio expansion (Bowling Green)
"This brings our total LTE market count to 158," an AT&T spokesman says.
Why this matters
AT&T was recently found to offer the fastest LTE service in the U.S.
However, it still lags Verizon Wireless's 470-plus 4G LTE footprint, so its steady drumbeat of new launches helps its market perception and marketing clout.

re: AT&T Adds More 4G LTE FYI,I never did get much of an answer about why AT&T's network is faster than Verizons.They're working with the same 2x10MHz channels as VRZN. Seems to me that it might have a later generation of technology onboard and a slight edge in antenna technology.
Light Reading is spending much of this year digging into the details of how automation technology will impact the comms market, but let's take a moment to also look at how automation is set to overturn the current world order by the middle of the century.
Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
