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.

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.
