AT&T Turns on 4G HSPA+ in 19 New Cities

For some reason or another, AT&T makes it extremely difficult to follow where the carrier rolls out its 4G HSPA+ network. You literally have to scroll over places on the coverage map to find out new spots and luckily, Sidecut Reports has done the grunt work for us and discovered that AT&T has brought 4G HSPA+ speeds to 19 new locations including New York and Los Angeles.

AT&T

In addition to the original 10 cities that were lit up with HSPA+ 4G, there are now 19 new places that have coverage:

California:
– Greater Los Angeles area
– San Diego
– Sacramento
– Bakersfield
– Modesto

Texas:
– San Antonio
– Austin

Florida:
– Jacksonville
– Tampa

Other towns and regions:
– Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn.
– Hartford, Conn.
– Syracuse, N.Y.
– Greater New York City
– Southern New England
– Eastern Pennsylvania
– St. Louis, Mo.
– Kansas City
– “Michigan”
– Anchorage, Ak

So, if you’re in any of those places, you will now be able to take full advantage of phones like the HTC Inspire 4G and Samsung Infuse 4G. It’s odd why AT&T doesn’t really publicize this but I have a theory why the company doesn’t.

It doesn’t want to take the wind out of the sails of its 4G LTE launch later this summer.

    Big deal. Time to release some decent phones AT&T that can utilize HSPA+ instead of that garbage you have been getting. How about a Sensation or Samsung Galaxy S2. Or are you still pinning your future on the next iPhone…

    well the atrix 4g is actually a pretty good phone they just havent turned HSPA+ on in some areas yet and thats the issue….. atrix 4g is going to get the gingerbread update soon and motoblur isnt nearly as bad as some people make it out to be…. well if you use social sites anyways hehehe

    Mentioned this to a coworker who has an AT&T 4G phone. Last week she ran Speed Test at work and was averaging 4 Mbps. So she excitedly ran it today expecting a jump. Three attempts and the best she could get was 1.5 Mbps. Way to go AT&T. Another coworker has TMO 4G and is averaging 6.5 Mbps with occasional bursts around 13 Mbps. Should we assume once the merger goes thru and AT&T is running things that TMO’s network will run about 2Mbps…
