AT&T Inc. revealed Tuesday that it now launched 4G LTE in more than 200 markets. AT&T launched 17 new markets in Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, Texas and other states Tuesday. This takes the operator up to 207 towns and cities gone live with 4G LTE. The operator also expanded the network in nine areas around the country. You can see the full range of Tuesday's launches and updates here. AT&T said on its first-quarter earnings call last week that it now expects to complete "nearly 90 percent" of its planned deployment to cover 300 million people with LTE by the end of this year. This is up from an original goal of 250 million people covered. (See AT&T Says LTE Deployment Is Ahead of Schedule.) The operator appears to be launching new markets every week to meet that goal.

re: AT&T Breaks 200-Market 4G LTE Barrier
I wonder what size footprint AT&T wants before it considers a home broadband offering on LTE like Verizon. Digital Life uses its 3G network.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
