AT&T today continues its slow march toward a full LTE rollout in its footprint by switching on its fastest 4G speeds for Cleveland, Ohio.

The addition of the Midwestern city in AT&T's coverage map now brings the carrier's total LTE market count to 39.

AT&T is undoubtedly making progress, but still has leagues to go. While AT&T struggles to light up its first 50 markets, LTE leader Verizon currently covers 258 areas , with a goal of covering 400 by the year's end.

Still, despite chasing its prime competitor, AT&T isn't doing too bad. Sprint is still fine-tuning its LTE infrastructure without launching a single public market, and T-Mobile is in the planning stages.
