Over a dozen new markets, primarily in the South, are seeing AT&T's latest network infrastructure

AT&T isn't slowing down on its LTE network deployments, as evidenced by several large markets going live with the service starting today. Users with LTE-capable handsets and the proper provisioning should see the network, if they haven't already, in the following areas:

The carrier is surely hoping to keep up a pace like this through much of 2013 in order to meet the expansive rollout Verizon is doing right now. Live in one of the above markets and seeing LTE up and running on your AT&T handset yet? Let us know in the comments.

AT&T flips the switch on even more LTE markets

I'm kinda upset at the fact that Henderson, NC gets at&t LTE before Verizon LTE. Makes no sense to me. Oh well, I guess it really doesn't matter in the long run.

Agreed. It is within a carrier's best interest to bring LTE to markets that competitors haven't hit or took a long time getting to. When Carrier A can say "we have the absolute fastest network here, Carrier B doesn't care about you"; it's tough to argue against, especially when priced cheaper (AT&T is priced lower than Verizon, though not by much).

How many cities are in the US? Between all of the carriers these lte announcements are going to get really old in the coming years...

Well, considering that these announcements often cover entire metro areas, there won't be as many as you might think. For instance, if a carrier says it has lit up Birmingham, AL, that likely means Birmingham, Hamewood, Hoover, Mountain Brook, Bessemer, Fairfield, Gardendale, Pelham, Hueytown, and several other places. The same would be true of any other major metro area.

Good draft, eh? I was impressed.

On topic: LTE has been serving me very well in PB. Definitely a fan.

finally got LTE here in springfield ohio i was shocked to walk out from work and see it 22megs down 11 up ill take it

some of these seem like out in the sticks, really! My next city limits has LTE but not mine.(by 10mins) Is it really that hard to expand to the next city over to the east? C'mon Man!! haha.. O'well

I don't live in Des Moines, IA (I live in Phoenix, AZ), but places like Paris, TX (Pop: 25,314), Mountain Home, AR (Pop: 12,454), and Henderson, NC (Pop: 15,330) get LTE before Des Moines (Pop: 206,599)? Are you serious?!!

If I lived in Des Moines, I'd be SERIOUSLY pissed!

Lawrenceburg, Kentucky was lit up at some point over the past few days. Don't know for sure, had been running CM10.1 on my Skyrocket and it was set to use HSPA only APN. I reset it last evening to PTA LTE and voila, 4G icon appeared and was pulling 20+ Mbit download and about 8 Mbit upload with the Speedtest app. Very impressed indeed! I am very surprised as Lawrenceburg is not very high on the totem pole when it comes to any type of rollout by AT&T. I'm definitely not complaining though. LOL
