AT&T Adds More 4G LTE

AT&T Inc. has added three new 4G LTE markets Wednesday and expanded the faster data service in three more areas. The new markets are:
  • Athens, Ohio
  • Sebring, Fla.
  • Dyersburg-Ripley, Tenn.
And these are the districts that get expanded service:
  • Hartford, Conn. expansion (Waterbury/Meriden)
  • Mobile, Ala. expansion (Baldwin County)
  • Toledo, Ohio expansion (Bowling Green)
"This brings our total LTE market count to 158," an AT&T spokesman says. Why this matters
AT&T was recently found to offer the fastest LTE service in the U.S. However, it still lags Verizon Wireless's 470-plus 4G LTE footprint, so its steady drumbeat of new launches helps its market perception and marketing clout. For more

re: AT&T Adds More 4G LTE FYI,I never did get much of an answer about why AT&T's network is faster than Verizons.They're working with the same 2x10MHz channels as VRZN. Seems to me that it might have a later generation of technology onboard and a slight edge in antenna technology.
