AT&T lights up a load of new LTE locales

In Mount Pleasant, SC I measured 59Mbs download and 24Mbs upload. I'm now averaging around 42Mbs download. I can't believe the speed!

Hartford ct, still waiting, supposedly by end of year they say.
We do have hspa+, but it takes too long to burn through my data limits with with 7mbs down.

That's a lot of big name cities! I bet ever city on today's list is 100k+ population, which is a HUGE improvement over lighting up places like Podunkville Arkansas like in the past.

Every time I log on to this site, all I see is Verizon or att rolling out their network into new cities. Where's Sprint??? Get going!!!

It's a little more complex for Sprint. They are replacing all of their hardware as well as their backend fiber. Major, major project.

And regarding SC cities, yes, I'm hearing that NE Columbia now has LTE whereas before it did not.

Portland, Oregon was previously announced (and in the press) some time ago.

Are you sure you don't mean Portland, Maine?

Yes,they mean Portland,ME.Yesterday AC had an article about AT&T lighting up LTE in Minneapolis-St.Paul,MN and one of the comments noted that Maine's LTE network was up.

Hopefully att turns on 4G LTE here in Fresno, CA before the networks becomes slow with alot of users

Even if the LTE network gets more people on it, the HSPA+ network will see less people every day. I can easily pull 8-10mbps on HSPA+ here in Northern Indiana.

Everyone else's lte is better than Sprint, even though it's not officially launched in bay area , I've been having it for weeks now. Fastest I've gotten is 7mbps but I average about 2.5mbps. I can say this though it's a great improvement over 50kbps 3g speeds that were used to. But it's nothing like att or Verizon's lte.

I'm sure wherever Sprint's best market is, Verizon can top it. So there really is no point for anyone to be on Sprint with a smartphone.

With HSPA+ on AT&T I can easily pull 8-10mbps and with LTE I can pull 20Mbps-50mbps. Yeah, AT&T wins hands down. Not to mention, we get the best phones due to the technology AT&T uses.

Nice to see LTE expanding in Oregon, though we are most likely years away from seeing it in the little town I live in. I am perfectly content with the HSPA+ speeds I get on my phone, but it would be nice to see LTE speeds on a tablet...

I'm still waiting on Harrisburg, PA. York, PA just lit up last week and they are only 30 minutes away from Harrisburg Metro area so hopefully we'll get it soon! That's why I bought the GS2 Skyrocket last December so I'd be ready for LTE. C'mon AT&T, hurry up!
