AT&T Adds Four More 4G Cities

AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) is continuing to deploy 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) markets at a fast clip, adding another four towns and cities to hit 113 now with the wireless broadband technology.

The operator has added four new markets since last week: Auburn, Ala.; Grand Rapids, Mich.; Nashua, N.H.; and Wilkes Barre, Pa.

With these latest updates, AT&T has easily surpassed its stated target of 100 markets covered with LTE in 2012. AT&T said last month that it is ramping up spending on wireless as part of its Project VIP scheme.

Why this matters
Verizon Wireless is still way ahead in LTE markets (441 now deployed) as more LTE smartphones and tablets arrive. AT&T's strategy to compete for the new year appears to be in both talking up the speed of its new LTE network blended with promoting the relative speed and availability of its HSPA+ network.

From The Founder
Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

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.
