Mapping 4G: AT&T to Expand LTE Footprint

AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) says that it intends to launch 12 new 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) markets in the coming months, bringing its total footprint using the new technology to 40 towns and cities in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

Ma Bell says it will introduce the faster wireless data delivery technology in the new markets in April, May and the early summer. The new LTE cities include St. Louis; Naples, Fla.; Bloomington, Lafayette and Muncie, Ind.; New Orleans and Baton Rouge, La.; Akron, Canton and Cleveland, Ohio; and Bryan-College Station, Texas. The carrier is also extending its New York City deployment to Staten Island.
