AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) 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.

Good to see the growth in the adoption of LTE by all major US operator.



Any idea on how many macro eNB's are present in a market on an average.


I have heard # from 200-2000 eNB depending upon the market.

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.
