The build-outs of the LTE networks of AT&T and Verizon in the United States have hit the point where they're covering smaller cities in 4G radio signals. In fact, just today Ma Bell announced that they're flipping the switch to turn on AT&T LTE coverage in 12 municipalities around the United States, though the largest in this batch is Bismark, North Dakota, population: 65,000. There used to be a time when a single new LTE network meant millions were covered — now it takes a dozen new markets to cover a mere 300,000. We're on the long tail of the LTE coverage build-out now. The full list of new AT&T LTE coverage follows.

  • Anderson, Indiana
  • Deridder, Louisiana
  • Midland, Michigan
  • Lebanon, Missouri
  • Claremont, New Hampshire
  • Lumberton, North Carolina
  • Bismark, North Dakota
  • Bellefontaine, Ohio
  • Defiance, Ohio
  • Greenwood, South Carolina
  • Seneca, South Carolina
  • Gainesville, Texas

Z30 and 10.2.1 should have been released from day one! Why it is carrier dependent still boggles my mind.

Posted on CB10 via Richard's awesome BlackBerry Z10! :)

Again with the at&t BS!

1. Where is the 10.2.1 update?
2. Where is the Z30?

Everything else "importa un culo!!"

I'm MongezaurioBerry

It's not just AT&T it's "EVERY" carrier in the United States. But the rest of the world has their 10.2.1 update and some of us are moving on to the second 10.2.1 (2141) update..

Come on!!! Att bring out the 10.2
.1 already!! I don't believe they are still testing it!! Get on the ball already.

Yeah, this is a lot of free advertising for AT&T, especially since the T-Mo articles are much less positive.

Serious question: Does AT&T pay the Crackberry website or any other Mobile Nations website any money? Does T-Mo? Who pays more?

Ok, I want AT&T to step up, too.

But, on the blog topic - yeah-hoo for DeRidder, LA. I travel there on business regularly and will greatly appreciate being able to have LTE data my Z10 and Q10. Especially when I have to hot spot for my laptop.

Now, AT&T, about the Z30 I want and the 10.2.1 I NEED . . .

Here in southern Michigan I couldn't get 3G most of the time on AT&T. Switched to Verizon and now I'm getting 4G no problem.

Im on my first month of LTE in rural southern Indiana, loving it, especially when Verizon is only offering 2g. Just wish I could figure out what band I was on so I would know if I could pick up a Z30!

As someone who works for Verizon, just have to say, AT&T, you guys are kinda late, but welcome to the party!

I'm beginning to see improvement in Poughkeepsie, NY and even a little further north of here. I usually get just "4G" which is ATT's HSPA+ service, but lately I've been seeing spoty coverage of LTE. Fingers crossed that they continue building out here in New York's Hudson Valley.

Just called tech support of AT&T last night and they told me there's no pending schedule of updates(10.2.1) in their system. -_-

Smh this #blastphemy again I don't want to hear another peep out of AT&T until they release 10.2.1 Smh

I know you guys are hurting. But I'm kinda getting tired of these "Where's the update?" posts. No offense :-)

Still waiting for Optus 4G LT2 here in Cairns, North Queensland. Telstra got a tiny spot around the city, about 2 or 3kms radius around the City Square.

Still, their 3G plans are much more value. Unlimited data (no daily cap), cheap data or blazing speeds. Hard decision. I go with cheap or real unlimited...

iPhone for me? Scr... ahem Q that! (posted from the latter)

Yes I'm getting tired of it also and wish people would just use Sachesi or install the latest leak. But I guess they rather fill up the comments section as if that will make AT&T release the update any faster SMH.

Supposedly, T-Mobile has a reason for the wait...i.e. to ensure T-Mobile's awesome wi-fi calling feature is supported. I'm not sure what the other carriers are waiting on, and I guess it's a safe bet that users on other carriers should just do the leak without problems.
