As announced a couple of days ago, AT&T has officially flipped their 4G LTE switch in five cities on Sunday. According to Ma Bell, AT&T covers 97 percent of all Americans.
And it’s safe to say that mobile users aren’t going to be overtaxing the service anytime soon, as there currently aren’t any AT&T handsets that would actually be able to make use of the new network. Users would have to pick up either AT&T’s USBConnect Momentum 4G modem, Elevate 4G mobile hotspot, or USBConnect Adrenaline in order to get Wi-Fi friendly devices or laptop and desktop PCs connected up to 4G LTE. Those, or the recently announced HTC Jetstream 10.1-inch tablet, which promises to support both AT&T’s 4G LTE and “4G” network, or HSPA+.
AT&T plans to expand its 4G LTE network to a total of 15 cities by year’s end. As well, the company expects to have a few bona fide 4G LTE smartphones on the market come the holiday season. If you’re lucky enough to live in San Antonio, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, or Atlanta, you should be able to check out the new high speed network any moment now. Let us know in the comments what kind of LTE action you’re getting into.
