ATT logo

Today, AT&T announced a slew of cities that are to receive their 4G LTE network this week. As evident in the list, AT&T is starting to work their way out into the more rural areas, including parts of Oregon, Virginia and Washington state. Check below to see the full list of additions. 

New cities:

  • Salem, OR
  • Dover, DE
  • Shelton, WA
  • Longview, WA
  • Leonardtown, MD
  • Asheville, NC
  • Culpepper, VA
  • Goldsboro, NC
  • Ocean City, MD
  • Roanoke, VA
  • Port Townsend, WA

If you live in one of the above areas and happen to sport an AT&T device capable of 4G LTE connectivity, enjoy it.

    Strangely enough most of very highly populated Northern NJ does NOT have LTE coverage but these random backwater places do. I’m sure the revenue there is so much more than overpopulated NJ! AT&T “Supervisor is GENIUS!” I can’t wait to go prepaid and go back to a dumb phone. So over paying for this nonsense.

    Verizon has 4G LTE in Middle of Nowhere, Idaho providing upto 12mb downloads in “Arctic Circle” (its a fast food chain in Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, & Montana). So until AT&T starts getting that kind of coverage Big Red aka (Too Big Too Care VZW) will still dominant.

    Why isn’t Verizon’s new LTE markets being listed anymore?

  • Randy

    Expand in the idaho area with surrounding areas as well that are in idaho

    Until AT&T has better LTE coverage than Viva Movil, I’m not ready to give up my pretty accessories designed by J-Lo.

  • MattInPDX

    Wow, AT&T is just installing LTE coverage in Salem? So, that’s the capitol of Oregon…Just saying…

    • Nw_adventure

      See thats just it- When your 3g Network gives 2-6mbps, things arent as urgent as a 3g network that tops out at 1mb on a good day-)

  • Marco Mendoza

    At&t has the fastest speeds in my area and it’s only hspa+. Us cellular has lte but it’s slow compared to hspa+.

    • Diablo81588

      I’ve never seen higher than 3mbps with HSPA+ in my area. Its all about location.

      • Marco Mendoza

        The highest that I have seen is 12mbs

  • cb2000a

    They are lighting up Maui…we have ATT LTE here too.

  • Guest

    My LG Optimus G started showing LTE on AT&T in Farmington, NM today also.

  • Nw_adventure

    Att Rules- Just saying. Rollover minues, 4G LTE plus a not too shabby 3G network(VZW with .6mb low-speed access) cheaper plans,full handset discounts without losing unlimited data (Vzw corporate discount doesnt even discount data, wtf) solid customer service and the GSM advantage. Sorry Overpriced Big Red -)

    • Jonathan Williams

      My corporate discount discounts the data plan on my account.

      • Tim242

        It does mine as well.

    • Tim242

      Rollover is a joke. Verizon’s LTE is 97% built out. 3G network is a moot point. At&t’s plans are not cheaper. They mirror Verizon’s. Unlimited on at&t is pointless after the 3GB throttle point. Verizon does not throttle. The corporate discount covers the data plan on the primary line, just the same as at&t. GSM advantage? Maybe for the few phones Verizon doesn’t get. But, GSM is worse quality. At&t’s customer service is always rated at the bottom. Sorry full of BS troll : )

      • Nw_adventure

        Tim- wake up, Rollover is pretty useful, Att with 18-22% Corp discounts is MUCH cheaper than Vzw- Taking peoples unlimited away- handset discounts vanishing- We have a vzw line in the family, call quality sucks, still no discount on data- Last time I called att cust svc to report a small state tax code error, they without urging gave me $110 credit just for letting them know. Dont get mad just because Vzw finished behind AT&T in overall download speeds. HAHA sucka-

        • Tim242

          I worked at&t customer service, in business care. I can tell you that less than 1% of people use rollover minutes. They just stack up for 11 months, then expire. Verizon discounts the data plan of the primary line. See screenshot below. As far as download speeds, they are comparable. Fast is fast.

    • jw

      Fyi it is not cheaper than Verizon. Verizon and art are equally matched in terms of prices. Coverage att can’t even compare where I live Verizon launched lte two years ago att is no where near it and their hspa network is slow and spotty, neck they just gave us 3g a year ago and I live in the capital district of ny.

    AT&T’s LTE is blazing fast. I’m going to enjoy every minute of it until more people get on it and the speeds come back to Earth. Interestingly, one area not on their coverage map is the outer banks area of NC around Manteo, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, and Nags Head. I was just there this weekend and it was solid LTE around there on my GS4. It’s nowhere to be seen on their coverage map or this announcement, though.

    There is no Dover, MD fyi

      How do you know? :P

      I read their release wrong. Saw it next to Ocean City. Fixed and fixed. Thanks.

  • htowngtr

    They are still being destroyed by Verizon’s coverage. I have AT&T with work while my wife is on VZW and it’s no contest. Hell, my father-in-law lives in the boonies and he just got LTE while my AT&T phone barely holds a single bar of “H”.

    • brkshr

      I don’t think that’s going to surprise anyone here.

      • htowngtr

        Yea, I plan on requesting a switch to VZW with work when the new HTC One arrives (hopefully). I have that phone on AT&T and I’d simply sell it to get out of this terrible coverage.

        • Randy

          Htc one will not arrive anytime soon on vzw network

          • htowngtr

            Anytime soon being late June, early July?

          • Omar Amer

            I wouldnt really hold my breath. Droid DNA didnt come out too long ago and to HTC, that phone is comparable to the HTC One. I dont think there was really any plans to bring the One to vzw to begin with.

    • Randy

      Did you know that at&t has better internet speeds than what verizon offers

      • htowngtr

        Untrue or at least a half-truth. Plenty of times one is faster than the other.

        • trwb

          It’s true for me. Att is faster. I guess it’s dependent on where you live.

    • trwb

      It’s quite the opposite for me. I get better and faster LTE and HSPA+ coverage where I live on At&t than I did with Verizons 3g/4g in my area

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        How long ago was that though? I feel like VZW updates their LTE map at a rapid pace

        • joshua graham

          I just recently switched from Verizon to at&t and my speeds are faster and stronger on at&t. Granted there are some areas where I have no coverage that Verizon does but I have found the same vice versa in the area as well. I do not regret my switch as at&t customer service has been far better then Verizon and I’m really enjoying my htc one
