AT&T soldiers on with LTE deployments
U.S. carriers are currently in the process of transitioning to 4G wireless services via LTE. Verizon is
well on its way to covering the nation
, while AT&T is far behind in its rollout efforts. Sprint LTE network; however,
is still in its infancy
AT&T announced today that its LTE network will expand to four additional markets on November 6. Those markets include Athens, Baltimore, Boston, and Washington, D.C. These deployments join AT&T's
initial rollout last month
(Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio).
To kickoff the expansion of its LTE network, AT&T will also launch its first LTE smartphones on November 6. These include the HTC Vivid and the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket.

That's a good start. Would be nicer if AT&T got the Nexus on LTE. It would be even more remarkable if they were able to get an LTE iPhone before anyone else.

I'm pretty sure Sprint's getting the iPhone 5 exclusively in the US market but it will not have LTE. That's likely why the introduction was delayed. Remember, Sprint's "bet the farm": 20 BILLION iPhone deal that we still don't know the details of was only leaked a day before the iPhone 4S was announced and we were all expecting them to announce TWO phones on that day. My guess is that they delayed the worldwide launch to retool the presentation now that it would not include AT&T or Verizon in the USA. Steve Jobs' death may have delayed this further. Sprint has now changed gears and it rolling out LTE, so whatever is released after the iPhone 5 may continue with this arrangement.
