AT&T Inc. is adding more 4G towns and cities, easily surpassing its 100-market deployment target for LTE in 2012.
On Sunday, AT&T said that it has launched LTE in Albuquerque, N.M.; Reading, Penn.; and Salt Lake City, Utah. The launches run ahead of a big wireless push in 2013 and beyond, as AT&T has said it will spend US$14 billion on network upgrades through 2015.
AT&T is now up to 109 cities with 4G LTE, according to a company spokesman.
Why this matters
In the wake of the failed T-Mobile acquisition, AT&T is making good on plans to boost wireless spending. It's still only the second-largest LTE provider in the U.S., as Verizon has 441 towns and cities using the new 4G technology.
