AT&T exceeding LTE deployment plans ahead of schedule

AT&T exceeding LTE deployment plans ahead of schedule AT&T has announced that their 4G LTE network deployment is moving well ahead of schedule.
The network is available in 24 new markets as of this weekend, now covering 152 million people.

By the end of 2013, the carrier says it wants to reach 250 million people and then 300 million by the end of 2014. At the end of 2011, AT&T covered just 75 million Americans.

Rival Verizon currently covers more people and has plans to reach over 300 million by the end of next year.

However, AT&T has HSPA+ for those in non-LTE coverage areas, which offers 4G-esque speeds for those with 3G-capable devices, including all iPhones before this year's iPhone 5.
