Verizon may have been the first to roll out a blazing 4G cellular network using LTE technology but AT&T is hot on Big Red's heels. Today the carrier announced it now has expanded its own LTE service to 11 new markets now covering New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
This brings the total number of regions under the carrier's LTE umbrella to 26 and comes as great news for loyal AT&T customers frustrated with the carrier's. It's also a harbinger for possibly some hot new LTE 4G equipped handsets to hit next week.
