AT&T launches 4G LTE in six markets, another 77 by summer
Shortly after stating it will build a <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/283026==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/09/says.it.expects.government.to.offer.same.breaks.as .google/" rel='nofollow'>Gigabit fiber</a> network to compete against <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/283027==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/09/austin.gigabit.internet.likely.to.cost.same.as.kan sas.city.project/" rel='nofollow'>Google</a> in Austin, AT&T has expanded its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/283028==http://www.att.com/4glte" rel='nofollow'>4G LTE</a> network into six new markets. While this means the carrier is currently covering 182 different markets, AT&T also plans to add another 77 markets to the list by this summer, as the carrier tries to catch up to Verizon Wireless and its 4G LTE network. <br />
<br />
LTE is now live in Kalamazoo, MO; Orangeburg, SC; Rocky Mountain-Wilson, NC; Jackson, TN; and Napa and Santa Rosa-Petaluma, CA, according to CNet.<br />
<br />
Markets planned to go live by the summer include Manhattan and Topeka, KA; Chattanooga and Cookeville, TN; Columbus and Fort Wayne, IN; Chico, Merced, and Visalia, CA; and ten markets in Texas alone, among others. <br />
<br />
AT&T is hoping to activate <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/283029==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/01/move.part.of.further.lte.initiatives.by.carrier.in cluding.protocol.improvements/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">HD Voice</a> on its network later in 2013, as part of its Voice over LTE strategy.
