AT&T 4G LTE Lit Up in New Markets, From Arizona to Georgia


AT&T has launched a good-sized list of new 4G LTE markets this week, ranging all the way from Arizona to Virginia. Their total should be greater than 600 markets now, putting them even ahead of Verizon in terms of overall amount.

Even though AT&T has a few more markets, Verizon is getting ready to launch nationwide VoLTE on its network, but AT&T’s VoLTE is only available in select markets as of this moment.

To see if your city has been graced with AT&T’s LTE, look below. 

New Markets

  • Kingman, AZ
  • Bullhead City, AZ
  • Lake Havasu City, AZ
  • Lynchburg, VA
  • Harrisonburg, VA
  • Enterprise, AL
  • Ozark, AL
  • Cornelia, GA
  • Toccoa, GA
  • Douglas, GA
  • Rutland VT
  • Canon City, CO
Via: AT&T

    Love my ATT LTE and it’s 5mbps download at 3am when no one is using it :/ Here HSPA+ is faster

  • I didn’t know Vermont was between Arizona and Georgia

  • greennick98

    Well seeing as areas I visit often just got Verizon LTE (VERY rural), yet their map doesn’t show it. I’m willing to bet Verizon just stopped announcing.

  • Joshua Rewerts

    I’m seeing flickers of LTE in the Waterloo, IA area this last week (AIO –> Cricket –> ATT)

    • James Polk

      Same here. Got it in CF, IA on and off last Friday night. Crossing fingers… I think this is one of the biggest markets AT&T doesn’t cover with LTE.

    Too bad their data service always blows. Three bars and my gf’s phone struggles to connect to website in major cities. Never have this problem with mobile and verizon

    • James Polk

      Really? My HSPA+ on Cricket (AT&T) is faster than LTE on VZW ever was, very consistently.

      • jeff manning

        Yea. It was really bad when we were in Dallas this summer. I was getting 75 Mbps T-Mobile while At&t was getting around 1.8 down. Not sure about HSPA network though.

    Are they really ahead or did Verizon just quit announcing new cities less than a set number of people? Cornelia, GA is on this list above and their population is less than 4,000.

      It’s obvious that they don’t classify markets the same. Verizon’s LTE is vastly more widespread in my experience.

      • Justin W

        Well, lets put it this way: AT&T considers a town with 180k (largely an AT&T subscriber area) to not be a market worth investing in, while Verizon has had LTE since the first year they began rolling it out. Yes, I live in that area, and yes, I’m still not pleased to not have LTE through them (though I don’t want to touch Verizon and T-Mo is on 2G around here).

    Same list, but compared to T-Mobile (just because):
    – Kingman, AZ: 2G
    – Bullhead City, AZ: 4G
    – Lake Havasu City, AZ: 2G
    – Lynchburg, VA: LTE
    – Harrisonburg, VA: 3G
    – Enterprise, AL: 2G
    – Ozark, AL: 2G
    – Cornelia, GA: 2G
    – Toccoa, GA: 4G
    – Douglas, GA: 2G
    – Rutland VT: Roaming
    – Canon City, CO: LTE

      I would like to see more communication on T-Mo’s “All 2G Edge will be LTE in 2015” comment. I don’t expect solid commitments, but at least reasonable guesses (by qtr), which they must have somewhere

      • besweeet

        I think we’ll hear way more about the progress of that program during their Un-carrier 7.0 announcement next month. Lots of small towns are reporting upgrades but still nothing really to report regarding long stretches of highways getting them.

    • flosserelli

      T-Mobile is focusing their LTE coverage in areas with the greatest population density. Legere specifically commented about that during the Uncarrier 5/6 event. If you live in the middle of nowhere, T-Mobile LTE in your area is not a priority. No LTE for BFE.
