AT&T Lights Up Another 10 Markets With 4G LTE

att logo

Ten new 4G LTE markets from AT&T popped up this morning, mostly in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Georgia. From the names of these towns, it’s a safe bet that AT&T is starting to hit the more rural (not as heavily populated) areas of America with most of the large markets complete. Over the past five years, AT&T has reportedly pumped a solid $100 billion into their wireless network in America, and for the most part, it’s starting to really show. 

New Markets:

  • Marthas Vineyard, Massachusets
  • Durant, Oklahoma
  • Enid, Oklahoma
  • Ardmore , Oklahoma
  • Arkadelphia, Arkansas
  • Russellville, Arkansas
  • Ponca City, Oklahoma
  • Charleston, West Virginia
  • Cedartown, Georgia
  • Rome, Georgia

Anyone basking in some new LTE glory thanks to these light ups?

  • Josh Shaw

    I just got it here in Tyler, TX too.

  • Austin_tacious

    I’ve been noticing LTE pop up in some spots and I thought it was a glitch. I’m ecstatic that Ardmore is finally getting true 4G.


    That’s right AT&T, keep it up. You may catch up to Verizon by the end of next year, MAAAYYYBBBEEE……

  • botop

    Enid America!!!

  • d-rock

    WOW…look at all that Oklahoma Love…where you at T-mobile?

  • I wish coverage maps would let me filter the various levels of service instead of using different shades of the same colour to differentiate between LTE & “4G”

  • Tony G.

    I can finally tweet from my house on marthas vineyard. faith in humanity restored

  • mrbirdman

    Yuba city, get at me. Verizon can’t get LTE to my house. I’m looking to you AT&T. Help me obi wan kenobi your my only hope.

  • SpeakWithYouAndMe

    Still hanging here in Fargo, ND. Our Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan area has the population size of 150k, and I’m wondering why we still don’t get LTE.

    • Verizon

      All the carriers watched the movie and are afraid to go there now.

    • fakekellex

      incredible. arkadelphia has a population of 10k. And they have it first? what?

      • middlehead

        Probably fewer towers to mount while still claiming that they cover an entire town. Helps with the PR and numbers, even if it doesn’t actually help any people.

      • Tim242

        Arkansas is one of at&t’s home states. Verizon has had LTE in Arkadelphia for two years haha

    • Weber

      And do you feel like you DESERVE LTE?

  • fakekellex

    still no LTE in Frederick, MD (one of the largest cities by POP in Maryland) That’s a pretty big oversight or problem.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    That $60 prepaid LTE is looking better and better….. On VZW now but may just get the Moto X for At&t….(if those low price Moto X rumors are true…of course)

    • Verizon

      The low price rumors are true, btw. $299 off and $99 on.

      And no, this is not “per Sarge”

      • EC8CH

        if you’re lying… you are one evil SOB.


        • Verizon

          Actually, no. Well ok the evil part is true, but the pricing thing is accurate.

          • EC8CH

            Place your hand on here and swear you’re telling the truth

          • Verizon

            You need to find something a little more evil. Like this…


          • EC8CH

            now that I see them side by side, the resemblance is uncanny.

          • Verizon

            Where do you think our policies come from?

          • EC8CH

            ya think anyone else reads these comments? you know… other than the NSA?

          • Verizon

            The NSA guy next to me said that they don’t even read the comments.

          • EC8CH


      • KleenDroid

        How many aliases do you have Bionic?

        Bionic, Bi0nic, Verizon, Galaxy S4, Guest… Lol

        • Verizon

          lol I am Verizon and Verizon only.

          Here is the breakdown:

          Verizon is only Verizon aka ME
          Bionic is gone
          Bi0nic is a different and new guy
          Bion1c is also a different and new guy, but not the same new guy as Bi0nic.
          Galaxy S4 may be Bionic, but he is also a new guy.
          Guest is about a billion people, but they are all in China and have no idea what is going on.

          • EC8CH

            And if you thought Sarge was a Moto insider….

          • JMAR

            Mother-loving Chuck Testa.

          • Al-Burrit0

            Bion1c trolled OG Bionic lol

    • Zach Armstrong

      I made the switch to that plan and love it The AT&T coverage is really good getting 6mbs up on HSPA+ on my Neuxs 4 compared to the 3mbs I was getting on Verzion’s LTE

  • I’m a fan of AT&T LTE. It’s so damn fast…and it’s growing rapidly. Welcome to the life of digital crack to all in the new markets. I travel through Charleston, WV several times each year so it’ll be nice to have LTE there.

  • Blue Sun


    • Verizon

      That is what happens when people from Philly and Arkansas have to compromise.

      • Blue Sun

        I was thinking the same thing. Or it’s the Philadelphia of Arkansas.

        • Verizon

          That might be worse.

    • Jason King

      It’s a small town in lower south-western Arkansas. There are two small colleges there and a lake/state park. Other than that, there’s nothing else there. Verizon has had the entire state of Arkansas covered with LTE for about a year now. So nothing new for me.

      • Tim242

        I lived there once : )

    • Tim242

      Arkadelphia is a city of 10,000, with 2 universities. It is close to De Gray Lake. It is 30 minutes from Hot Springs, only an hour from Little Rock

  • Verizon

    I read this and LOL.

    • Eric

      I LOL when rural was defined.

    • EC8CH

      I LOL’d when we got our response back from you about why our LTE speeds drop to less than 100 kbps every day from 9-5 in the middle of a major city:

      “Low coverage area and fluctuations like that are normal”

      • Verizon

        Personally, I blame your phone and the shirt you’re wearing.

        • EC8CH

          the first thing you did recommend was factory resetting our 30 some odd phones.

          • Verizon

            Of course. That would keep you busy so there wouldn’t be any time to complain about service.

      • AT&T

        And yet he claims to be “America’s most reliable network” ..HAH!

        • Verizon

          At least I never dated that T-Mobile slut.

          • AT&T

            Don’t be salty because I got head from the hottest girl in town. Don’t you have some robots to play with? Or wait, maybe I’m confused, you’re still working on delaying phone updates for your customers, right?

          • James

            Zing! haha

          • Verizon

            WTDs are nothing to brag about.

            Actually, I busy providing service and LTE to just about the entire country. What are you doing again? Failing?

          • The Now Network

            Hey guys can I join the LTE party?

          • Verizon

            You better hurry. Someone may buy you before you get it rolled out.

        • The Now Network

          We here at Sprint still have truly Unlimited Data.

          • Verizon

            Unlimited 3G. Congrats.
