USA based AT T says that its LTE based 4G network now covers more than 150 million people across the country. The coverage is more than double AT T's LTE coverage at the end of 2011 with still more expansion planned through the end of the year.
AT&T plans to expand 4G LTE to 250 million people by year-end 2013 and to 300 million by year-end 2014. AT&T's LTE service is in 103 markets today.
AT&T's 4G LTE network delivered faster average download speeds than any other carrier in PCWorld's most recent 13-market speed tests. Even as AT&T continues to expand its LTE coverage, customers can fall back onto the HSPA+ based 3G network when out of range, which the company says offers comparable speeds.
