AT&T LTE coverage expands to Ascension Parish and Western Nassau County

AT&T has been on a nice, steady pace in terms of 4G LTE rollouts and expansions, and two new markets are finally receiving coverage today. Ascension Parish near Baton Rouge and Western Nassau County near New York City are receiving high speed coverage starting today, and with dozens of smartphones, tablets, and hotspot devices with compatible radios we’d imagine more than a few of you are excited for that. There are still a lot of major markets to take care of but any progress is good progress in our eyes. See if you can get that 4G LTE icon to show up in your device’s status bar and let us know how things are faring for you. [AT&T 1, 2]

Baton Rouge, LA seeing AT&T 4G LTE?

AT&T confirmed this past weekend that Baton Rouge would be getting 4G LTE, but didn’t bother to offer a time frame other than “soon.” We’ve gotten a couple of independent reports that the network is live today, though we haven’t been able to find much more than that. It’s strange that AT&T would launch the network in that market without an announcement so we assume they’re just testing the network and allowing anyone who notices to hop on.

It’s not unlike what usually happens with Verizon’s rollouts as users sometimes report coverage up to a week in advance of Verizon’s official launch date. There are quite a few of you with AT&T LTE phones now so if you’re in the Baton Rouge area and you have a phone that can take advantage of LTE, be sure to check to see if you can connect. Let us know in the comments section below if you can or can’t. [Thanks Spoosh!]

To the 5 Boroughs (and St. Louis) – AT&T expands LTE coverage

To the Five Boroughs

That's right, Staten Island. No longer can Manhattan and Queens and Brooklyn and the Bronx lord over you for not having AT&T's 4G LTE data, as the switch has been flipped and you're now a member of the, uh, "Hey, we have AT&T LTE Club." In addition, St. Louis also has gone live. The new LTE locales come just a couple days after Indiana and Texas saw a few towns turned on, and it's all part of a 12-market expansion currently under way.

So who's next? Baton Rouge and New Orleans are still on the list, and we've got a feeling they'll be live by the time CTIA hits the bayou country on May 8.

AT&T LTE Coming To 12 New Markets Starting April 8

AT&T confirmed today that they will be flipping the LTE switch on twelve new markets starting on April 8. That will bring AT&T’s coverage to about 40 total markets across the U.S., which is still trailing far behind Verizon’s planned 400-market roll-out by the end of the year, but ahead of Sprint’s yet to be born LTE network.

Starting this Sunday, Bloomington and Muncie, Indiana, as well as Bryan-College Station, Texas, will light up first. Check out the full list after the break.

  • Bloomington, Indiana
  • Muncie, Indiana
  • Bryan-College Station, Texas
  • St. Louis, Missouri
  • Naples, Florida
  • Lafayette, Indiana
  • Baton Rouge, Louisiana
  • New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Akron, Ohio
  • Canton, Ohio
  • Cleveland, Ohio
  • Staten Island, New York

Besides the first three on the list, exact dates aren’t known for the rest, but AT&T does claim that LTE roll-outs will span through April, May and into the early summer. If your city is on this list, you should consider looking for a new LTE device to take advantage of the speeds. Luckily, AT&T has a good selection of LTE-capable devices to choose from, including the Samsung Galaxy NoteSamsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, LG Nitro HD, HTC Vivid, Pantech Burst, and the soon-to-be-arriving HTC One X.

AT&T lighting up 12 new 4G LTE markets this week

Well, it looks like the folks at AT&T are starting to realize they need to begin cranking out the updates for their 4G LTE network. Being way behind Verizon’s rollout is one thing, but taking forever to add more is another. Today they’ve announced an additional 12 markets will see 4G LTE speeds starting Sunday, April 8th.

They’ve started to increase the speed at which they are updating markets and networks, so that is a good thing. Verizon already covers over 200 million people and growing every week or so, and AT&T appears to be starting to update at the same rate. Today we’ve learned multiple markets in Texas, Missouri, and Florida will all be getting the green light from AT&T.

AT&T’s coverage might still be slightly limited, but it is growing everyday. New markets include: Bloomington and Muncie, Indiana as well as Bryan-College Station, Texas. Other markets to follow are St. Louis, Missouri; Naples, Florida; Lafayette, Indiana; Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana; Akron, Canton, and Cleveland, Ohio; and Staten Island, and New York City. They have some great LTE capable phones. The HTC One X coming soon will be one awesome AT&T 4G LTE device and if you haven’t seen our review of the Tegra 3 version check it out below.

AT&T extending 4G LTE network to 12 new markets in April

AT&T is still playing a severely slow game of catch-up with Verizon and their vast and quick 4G LTE rollout. They’ve just announced a couple of new markets that will soon be getting the fast 4G LTE speeds and we have all the details. According to AT&T, Cleveland will be up next to receive the update and that is coming soon. Then 11 other markets are going to get the blue switch flipped from AT&T too.

Like mentioned above, Cleveland is up first to receive the upgrade to AT&T 4G LTE and then another 11 markets will get the same treatment. This list below is where we can expect to start seeing LTE speeds although the announcement detailed this as coming soon. Stating the updates should start rolling out sometime in April, so users probably wont have LTE in these cities next week, but can expect them shortly.

– St. Louis, Missouri
– Naples, Florida
– Bloomington, Lafayette and Muncie, Indiana
– Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Lousiana
– Akron, Canton and Cleveland, Ohio
– Bryan-College Station, Texas
– Staten Island, New York City

AT&T has been slow to launch their 4G LTE network but these new locations will join the existing markets in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, Washington DC, and New York to name a few. With the new HTC One X (or One XL) coming soon to AT&T with 4G LTE we have a feeling these markets will launch before the end of April, just in time for the AT&T launch of the new HTC Flagship phone.
