Verizon Wireless has the largest 4G LTE network in U.S., with the service being offered in approximately 500 markets. Moreover the carrier is expected to be finished with its deployment work in a couple of months. After it, AT&T is the second network that’s offering the largest 4G LTE network, but its service is not available in even half of the total markets that Verizon caters to. Regardless, we’ve been seeing AT&T switch on its service in new markets at a swift place, only today it announced that its LTE service is now available in an additional 20 markets.
These 20 new markets include Lake City and Ocala, Florida; Lansing, Michigan; Cattanooga, Tennessee; Huntsville, Alabama and Shreveport / Bossier city in Louisiana. 12 additional markets have now been connected to AT&T’s 4G LTE network over the past couple of weeks, these include Springfield, Missouri; Florence, South Carolina; Petersburg, Virginia; Morgantown, West Virginia and Cushing, Oklahoma. AT&T is definitely playing catch-up with Verizon, it hopes to add quite a few markets by the end of summer. Other carriers such as T-Mobile and Sprint are gradually making their 4G LTE available in new markets as well.
