AT&T Adds More 4G LTE Cities

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.
