AT&T Flipping on LTE all over?

So far today I've seen threads for Birmingham, AL, Seattle and Philly. Any other places they threw the switch today? They are obviously making a big push to get as many places on for the new iPhone as they can. Hoping Detroit is on by Friday too.

AT&T does many things wrong but they also do some good things.

Found this on their webpage. Pretty big push in the last week:

Quote:
AT&T 4G LTE Available in Birmingham
- Birmingham, Alabama -- September 18 2012

AT&T 4G LTE Available in Memphis
- Memphis, Tennessee -- September 18 2012

AT&T 4G LTE Available in Sacramento
- Sacramento, California -- September 17 2012

AT&T 4G LTE Available in Wilmington
- Wilmington, Delaware -- September 14 2012

AT&T 4G LTE Available in Philadelphia
- Philadelphia, Pennsylvania -- September 14 2012

AT&T 4G LTE Available in Rochester
- Rochester, New York -- September 12 2012

AT&T 4G LTE Available in Albany
- Albany, New York -- September 12 2012
Edit: 5 of those were on their list from 9/6 of "by the end of 2012." They also threw on several others on 9/6. Bravo to them for making a big push. A little late, but at least they are showing they are working on it.

Whoa, they threw the switch on Seattle? Cool... course I'm still not sure that will benefit me. Technically I'm just north of Seattle so if it's just in the city I'm probably only going to get to experience it sometimes (I don't go into the city that much). Still, it means more chance I'll at least get a chance to see how good it is (at least before I visit my parents in Atlanta cause it appears their map says Atlanta has LTE now).

I might not have switched if I knew they planned on having LTE in my Area in the near future. The only thing I really hated about ATT is how quickly the data signal would get clogged. Huge mistake not making some sort of formal announcement on that issue.

the Twin Cities is scheduled "by end of 2012." I am pleasantly surprised to hear that other cities on that list are being turned on this soon, not something I would expect from AT&T.

They saw that they had a lot of iPhone activity up there in Anchorage over the last weekend and decided that they needed to invest in Anchorage.

I just want to know how far the coverage extends. I'm in a suburb directly outside of Chicago, maybe like 40 mins away from the heart of the city (with light traffic), should I have LTE signal?

Mind sharing the webpage? I must be an idiot cause I can't find it on their website, aside from the "coming soon" list and the map with too many blues to know what is what.

Cool. It's too bad Everett is not in that mix (it's where I work and where I probably use my iPhone the most... when I'm on break).

Still, that's pretty good coverage (and covers where I live though at home I have wi-fi ) and maybe it will creep to Everett eventually.

I'm hoping for a Detroit greenlight in the next few days as well. Those are my old stomping grounds and I'm gonna be back in town in a couple weeks, hopefully with an iPhone 5 that'll take advantage of it.

I posted this in the Seattle thread, but Portland is supposed to get LTE by the end of this month if the AT&T retail worker I spoke with today is to be believed.

We have had LTE for a few months. I get full bars and about 20Mbps all around major areas in South FL.

I'm about an hour NW of Chicago and lte just misses my house by 5 or so miles. That being said, LTE is all over lake county (Ill) and throughout Chicagoland. Do a google search for att coverage map and you'll see their LTE area.

I go to Bremerton/Bangor a lot. Are any of those cities close to the ones that have activated, so that they might be able to get the signal from one of those cities, even though they aren't specifically listed?
