AT&T is finally rolling out its LTE service

Well, it's better late than never. Verizon flipped the switch on its LTE network back in early December. Now, AT&T is strolling along with its competing LTE network, which officially get the green light on September 18 according to FierceWireless.

AT&T CFO John Stephens confirmed the rollout, and as previously stated, the five debut markets will be Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. AT&T hopes to expand to 15 markets and reach 70 million U.S. residents by the end of 2011.

For comparison's sake, Verizon's LTE network currently reaches 160 million Americans (185 million by year's end) and is available in 143 markets (175 by year's end). 

As we reported earlier in the month, AT&T has two fresh LTE devices available for its rollout: the USBConnect Momentum 4G and the Mobile Hotspot Elevate 4G. The older USBConnect Adrenaline received a firmware update last month to make it compatible with AT&T's LTE network. 

In addition to the Momentum 4G and Elevate 4G, AT&T announced late last month that the HTC Jetstream would also operate on its LTE network. The Jetstream is a 10.1" Android (Honeycomb) tablet that features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and features an 8mp camera will dual-LED flash. 

The Jetstream is priced at a whopping $699.99 with a two-year contract.

One thing to keep in mind is that Apple's iPhone will be launching sometime within the next month. The current iPhone 4 is still relegated to 3G data speeds while most of the competition has moved on to true 4G (LTE/WiMAX) or faux-4G (HSPA+). We're almost certain that the next generation iPhone will support HSPA+ when it is announced, but we hope that LTE is in the cards as well.
