Michigan readers, rejoice, as AT&T announced today several new 4G LTE markets in the eighth most populous state in the US.
Users in the following areas of Michigan should start to see the little LTE symbol at the top of their iPhones and Android handsets very soon.
Ann Arbor, Michigan
Beverly Hills, Michigan
Monroe County, Michigan
Kent County, Michigan
Ottowa County, Michigan
“Our goal is for our customers to have an extraordinary experience, and they’ll be able to download, upload, stream and game faster than ever before on our 4G LTE network,” said Jim Murray, president, AT&T Michigan. “As part of the Metro Detroit community, we’re always looking for new opportunities to provide enhanced coverage, and our investment in the local wireless network is another way we’re accomplishing that.”
It looks like AT&T, like Verizon and Sprint before it, is finished rolling out new service to the more populous areas of the country, and now is settling in to bring the service to less dense areas that still need it.
Sprint recently started rolling out LTE coverage of its own, including Anderson, IN, Clarke County, VA, Harrisburg/Carlisle/Hershey, PA, and several others. Verizon rolled out 29 new LTE markets just last month, mostly across Colorado, Arizona, Utah, and Washington.
If you’re in one of the areas in Michigan above, let us know if you’re seeing LTE or 4G in your neck of the woods in the comments below.
