Marching towards full nationwide LTE coverage, AT&T hits a few more notable markets
LTE brings the benefit of not only faster overall speeds, but of course faster ping (response) times and just general network robustness.

As AT&T tends to do when it launches new markets with LTE, it notes how much money is being put into the building out of the network. This time around, at least $30 million was spent on network infrastructure in just Wyoming from 2010 to 2012. Networks ain't cheap, folks.
