AT&T launches their 4G LTE network AT&T's LTE network is finally live.
The major U.S. carrier has announced today that the LTE network will go live in five cities this weekend.

Starting September 18th, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio will get the fast mobile data service.

Unfortunately, even for those in the cities, there are very few AT&T devices with LTE support outside of their LTE modem and the HTC JetStream tablet.

Data plans start at $50 for 5GB of use with a modem, comparable to Verizon's rival plan.

Too big of cities for initial rollout I would guess. This is AT&T we are talking about.

AT&T can go eat it...T-Mobile has 4G coverage in all the major cities and lots of medium cities...they even have 4G in Racine, Wisconsin...I once watched the main road of that town for 20 minutes in the middle of a Sunday afternoon...and not one car drove by...but they have 4G from T-Mobile. Honestly, I have to question the wisdom of putting in 4G there...but I won't complain that they have too much coverage.

Anyway, who wants 4G when you have a 2GB cap with overages thereafter? T-mobile may throttle after 2GB if you get the cheap plan, but it is still faster than AT&T 3G, and there are no overage fees.
