AT&T lights up LTE in Florida, North Carolina markets

AT&T this morning announced that it's turned on 4G LTE data in several more markets. If you're in the greater Tampa area -- Tampa/St. Petersburg and Sarasota-Bradenton, to be exact -- you should now be seeing faster speeds, provided you have one of AT&T's new 4G-capable devices. Same goes for Durham, N.C.

AT&T's current 4G LTE lineup can be a little confusing, as its website includes the iPhone and other HSPA+ devices, which aren't LTE-capable. For true 4G LTE on AT&T, you need to have the Samsung Galaxy Note, LG Nitro HD, Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, HTC Vivid and Pantech Burst, or, the Pantech Element or HTC Jetstream or Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 tablets.
