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.
