AT&T is getting closer to its quest of covering 250 million people with 4G LTE by the end of 2013. On Monday, the carrier announced five more markets that will receive the faster 4G speeds.

The new markets are:

  • Manhattan, Kan.
  • Sedalia, Mo.
  • Warrensburg, Mo.
  • Jacksonville, Texas
  • Palestine, Texas

This brings AT&T's total to 212 4G LTE markets and nearly 200 million people, up from 175 LTE areas just a month ago.

Verizon's needle, meanwhile, hovers in the 500-market range.
