  • Monroeville, Alabama
  • Evergreen, Alabama
  • Vieques, Puerto Rico
  • Aberdeen, Washington
  • Hoquiam, Washington
  • Ocean City, Washington
  • Ocean Shores, Washington
  • Huntington, WV
  • Ashland, KY
  • Cookeville , Tennessee

  • what wallpaper is that? and where can i get it?

  • Oh and I have att LTE around 3 mile away from my house and all around my city. It is like At&t is purposely holding the LTE rollout in my city. Its been like that for 8 months now. Freeway is a mile away from my house and I get lte right after a mile on the freeway. I dont think they are going in any order, if they are it doesn’t make sense. I live in the city with around 300,000 people. Only way it makes sense is if they are rolling out first in area with bad HSPA coverage, since they have already lit up alot of major cities. They are probably focusing on areas that need it the most. I do get around 8-10mbs on hspa but the latency is too high, its few seconds it can find a page sometimes when browsing the internet.

  • In McMinnville, TN with 30K people AT&T now gets LTE. 1 year AFTER Verizon gets it here. They have to keep up even in a small city.

  • Shaun Hardey

    My city has a population greater than 70k and 3g, err I mean 4g, came only 2 years ago with speeds exceeding 15Mbps. Now the average is around 2-3Mbps.

    Come on ATT, I have an international Note 2 without LTE and I would like to see 4g LTE here to offload the HSPA network.

  • Steve Trevino

    I’m suprises my little town palestine has 4G, it took At&t forever to get 3G as in less than two years ago.

    • Tojen1981

      Same here. Stuck on EDGE up until last July. Now I have 4g Lte in the little town of Troy, KS, but not St. Joseph, Mo which is only 15 min east with a population of about 80k and they need it very badly. I can only get about 3 down, 1 up over there. Getting 24 down, 7 up on lte though. Was getting 7 down, 3 up at home on 3g so it was pretty fast already. Atchison, KS has lte as well.

      • Steve Trevino

        Yeah im surprised since this town of 20,000 has had edge for the majority of the city and a small area on hspa+. Now 4G out of nowhere.

    • Josh Shaw

      None here in tyler yet, I’m driving to J-VIlle this afternoon to try it out :p

  • Kane Stapler

    evergreen and monroeville combined population of 10,000… My city in Alabama has a population of 40,000 and no LTE

    • Josh Shaw

      Jacksonville and Palestine TX combined population of 32,000 Tyler(my city) population of 100,000.

      P.S Jacksonville is 36 minutes away, Palestine is 57 minutes

      • Steve Trevino

        I’m pretty sure tyler is covered on 4G right..? I know that had verizon a lte first in east texas area.

        • Josh Shaw

          4G= LTE, HSPA+ is not 4G. Calling HSPA+ 4G is a marketing gimmick
          No we have HSPA+ in Tyler.

          • Christopher Riner

            HSPA+ is for gsm networks. Verizon is CDMA

          • Josh Shaw

            What are you talking about? HSPA+ is all I have in Tyler right now with AT&T

        • jeremyvb

          Metropcs had LTE first in East texss. Not very good but still LTE. But no one out has true 4g…LTE advance will be true lte. But it might not even be true 4g according to 4g standards.

      • Nayrb Sekots

        Jacksonville and Palestine have both had unadvertised LTE for about 2 weeks now. I hit 60MBps last week in Jacksonville…still waiting for LTE to make it to Longview.

        • Josh Shaw

          I drove to Chandler last night and got 43MBps down
