AT&T to Launch LTE in 5 Markets this Summer

AT&T announced plans to launch LTE in five markets this summer -- Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta and San Antonio. It plans to add 10 or more markets in the second half of the year. Trials have delivered performance that is consistent with others. This would give AT&T an LTE footprint covering 70 million Americans by year-end.

In a presentation at a Barclays Conference, John Stankey noted that the average actual speed on the nationwide AT&T has improved by 40% thanks to upgrades to HSPA 7.2 and more recently HSPA+.http://www.att.com
