I've been getting a solid 20Mbps all over south FL for a couple months. It's so flat here that signal strength is awesome all over. Even with the great coverage they launched some more towers last week to help with some of the areas along the everglades. It's prob much cheaper to roll it out down here because population is so dense and it's flat.

Consider yourself lucky -- those of us in Colorado Springs have no idea when we're slated to get LTE!

It just went on in Metro Detroit today, and I'm pleased to say that "metro detroit" apparently includes Ann Arbor!

Any bay area LTE turned on beside San Fran? Walnut Creek, or east bay perhaps?

I agree, was not sure we were going to see this before the end of the year; quite surprised tbh.

How is LTE inside buildings?

One of the annoying things about my AT&T iPhone 4 has been losing signal inside large buildings. Is LTE able to penetrate better?

Very excited about LTE in Sacramento. Was contemplating switching to VZW (since they were the only carrier with LTE here) for the iPhone 5, but now I won't be doing that.

Looks like Tucson, but no Phoenix? Seems odd, but I guess they have to start somewhere.
No LTE yet here in Albuquerque, but supposedly coming by the end of the year. That will make the 5 harder to resist ;-)

EDIT: Oh, Phoenix already had LTE.

AT&T 4G LTE Available In Portland

Customers to benefit from ultra-fast mobile Internet on the latest LTE devices

PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* has turned on its 4G LTE network in Portland, bringing customers the latest generation of wireless network technology. Watch here to see several of the benefits AT&T 4G LTE provides, including:

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120612/DA23287LOGO)

Faster speeds. LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile Internet speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Customers can stream, download, upload and game faster than ever before.

Cool new devices. AT&T offers several LTE-compatible devices, including new AT&T 4G LTE smartphones and tablets, such as the Motorola ATRIX ™ HD, Sony Xperia ™ ion, HTC One™ X, Samsung Focus® 2, Nokia Lumia 900, Samsung Galaxy Note™, and Pantech Element™ tablet.

Faster response time. LTE technology offers lower latency, or the processing time it takes to move data through a network, such as how long it takes to start downloading a webpage or file once you've sent the request. Lower latency helps to improve services like mobile gaming, two-way video calling and telemedicine.

More efficient use of spectrum. Wireless spectrum is a finite resource, and LTE uses spectrum more efficiently than other technologies, creating more space to carry data traffic and services and to deliver a better network experience.
"We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our 4G LTE network in Portland responds to what customers want from their mobile experience — more, faster, on the best devices," said Mike Maxwell, AT&T's Vice President/General Manager.
Notice they don't mention iPhone or iPad.

This has me 1000 times more excited for my new phone to get here. And I was already really excited about it. I'm a bit bummed I have to do an upgrade swap before I can turn it on.

Seems like they wanted to have it coincide with the release of Iphone 5!!! I am so stoked now!

go to att.com/lte and look at the map. it has orange dots for cities that at&t currently has LTE service. It also has green dots for cities that will have LTE service by the end of the year. That basically means most of the green areas are under testing and youll get some spotty LTE coverage at the least.

After my freshman year, where the reception was miserable, I've always had service at the big house (so, for last year and in the first 2 games this year). ATT is an official sponsor of Michigan football, so you'd hope they could provide coverage at the games.

It's actually really cool to be able to use your phone when you realize you're packed into 1 square mile with over 110,000 other people

Do you know if that extends to Vantucky, as well? Can you link somewhere with this info, or did you just see it show up on your iPad?

EDIT: Looked up a couple of posts and saw the press release.
