I'm sorry, I should have been more specific. I edited my OP.

Does anyone know when AT&T is getting LTE in Fresno?

Stop bumping the thread FFS.
Check AT&T's coverage map to see if you have it, or the link above to see if there are plans for it.

Maybe call AT&T and ask them directly? That probably will give you as good a shot at getting any kind of "inside" information. You'll have just as much of a chance of the information the phone rep gives you about LTE rollout being accurate as you would on this forum.

I highly doubt that anyone who has inside knowledge of AT&T's timeline for LTE rollout would respond to this question by saying anything other than "it's coming. . .sit tight."

Actually a forum member has already PM'ed me with some preliminary information. There are several insider contributors and industry watchers here on the forum. So don't doubt it too much. Calling an AT&T call center would be a complete waste of time, they know nothing about LTE rollouts in advance, or even after official announcements.

4G is not LTE. It's AT&T-speak for fast 3G.

I'm operating within forum rules, friend. Clicking on a coverage map or waiting for AT&T to announce does not address my question.

That's odd. Fresno was to get it the same time as Bakersfield! LTE was turned on the day before iP5 launch.

I chatted with ATT support on their website to see if they could give me an ETA on this and they told me 4/15/13. I was kind of surprised that they gave me an exact date, but this is what they said!

Re-read your posts in this thread, shouldn't be a surprise to you why others aren't particularly inclined to help you.

Actually many people in this thread and in PMs have been very helpful. Not you, but many others.

I'm not sure exactly which areas because I only asked about Fresno and Kingsburg. He said that the towers in both of these areas would be turned on the same day. So I'm assuming/hoping that it will cover all of the towns between at least Fresno and Kingsburg if not more

Monterey LTE went live last month. That would seem to support the April launch date for Fresno. There is another unsubstantiated report of an August launch date for Fresno.

There have been internet posts regarding sightings of new AT&T cell towers being constructed in Fresno.

Check out the App called "Coverage?". They seem to keep it up to date. You can check the nationwide coverages for the big four (carriers). You can check their 3G,4G(HSPA & LTE) or LTE.

According to one source, Fresno is one of the two largest AT&T mobile markets in the country that does not yet have LTE. They have been hemorrhaging customers to Verizon locally over this issue for the last 2 years.
