New network additions has AT&T covering 239 markets with LTE

AT&T has rolled out its 4G LTE network into 11 new markets and expanded in six others, as part of its national roll-out of the high-speed data network. New areas in six states, including Virginia and Washington, have had LTE access turned on today, while six markets in five states will have a wider coverage area.

LTE is active in Dover, DE; Salem, OR; Asheville and Goldsboro, NC; Ocean City and Leonardtown, MD; Culpeper and Roanoke, VA; Longview, Shelton, and Port Townsend/North Whidbey Island/Camano Island, WA. Coverage has been expanded in Casa Grande, AZ; Albany, NY; Calvert County, MD; Linglestown, PA; and Stafford and Spotsylvania county, VA.

The new expansion means that AT&T's 4G LTE service is active in 239 markets, covering more than 292 million people. While AT&T plans to cover 300 million people by the end of next year, customers in non-LTE areas or those that do not own LTE devices will still be able to connect to the carrier's HSPA+ network, which it claims covers almost 100 percent of the entire AT&T wireless network.
