    AT&T Officially Announces LTE in 5 Markets this Summer and More by End of Year


    AT&T just announced the beginning stages of their LTE rollout in an official press release. Initially their LTE network will come to 5 markets this summer, with more to follow before the end of the year. Here's the full press release,
    AT&Ts 4G Evolution

    Dallas, Texas, May 25, 2011

    By John Donovan, AT&T Chief Technology Officer

    AT&T has delivered five mobile broadband speed upgrades in recent years, including our HSPA+ deployment last year. And average nationwide speeds on the AT&T network have increased more than 40 percent over the past two years alone.

    The next network evolution will arrive this summer with the addition of LTE in five markets Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta and San Antonio. We plan to add another 10 or more markets in the second half of the year, and cover 70 million Americans with LTE by year-end. We also have plans to add 20 4G devices to our robust device portfolio this year, with some of those being LTE capable.

    Were positioning to deliver a great mobile broadband experience in the near term with HSPA+ and a growing LTE footprint.

    Weve invested $75 billion in our wireless and wired networks over the last four years more capital invested in the U.S. than any company in any industry. And we plan to invest $19 billion in our wireless and wireline networks and other capital projects this year. The investments weve made to evolve our mobile broadband network in recent years, plus what we have planned for the future, put our customers in position to benefit fully from a host of coming mobile broadband innovations.

    I'm a bit surprised that they're rolling out LTE when they haven't even turned on the HSPA+ network in Atlanta yet!

    That is interesting to point out. Wonder if that's part of the beginning of Lte for them? Glad their going to release 20 4G phones this year.

    Well, in the tradition of being confusing, they call HSPA+ =4G; and LTE is, well, LTE. I'd think it would make sense for them to implement 4G fully and properly before throwing LTE into the mix. But then, I'm a 4G phone user who's still waiting for the promised 4G speeds....
