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.

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.
