AT&T announced this week that the company has added 35 new markets to its 4G network across the US. AT&T expects to expand the network by an additional 45 cities by the end of the summer.

The rollout will of course be a huge benefit to anyone in those markets who owns an iPhone 5 or the latest iPad equipped with 4G LTE.

Is that FauxG (HSPA) or LTE? Your speeds seem low in either case, really.

This is done with T-Mobile in Jersey. Ping was lower before but now tests stupid high. This connection is usually good enough as a substitute for when I lose my connection at home from a storm or something.

Those of you with "4G" on your phone getting anything below 2Mbps actually have 3G. AT&T lumps "3G" and "4G" as "4G" on your phone. LTE shows as "LTE" or "4G LTE". From what I understand, they have already upgraded the panels and equipment to "4G" but if the backhaul isn't there, you just get 3G speeds. Kinda sucks. On the other hand, AT&T is going crazy with LTE. In some areas they are jumping from 3G to LTE and skipping "4G".

You should be getting these speeds in an AT&T LTE 10x10 market. 5x5 should see half of this. The maximum LTE speeds I have picked up are around 50Mbps down in the Orlando market which is 10x10. Atlanta is also very impressive.

I live in one of the new cities that just got LTE on that list (victoria, Tx) and the best speed i have gotten on LTE in the city was 8 down and 2 up. average is like 0.2-1mbps down and 0.2-0.5 up. This was tested on various phones. Its actually worse than HSPA+ right now.

Interesting to see so many places so far behind in terms of wireless rollout. I'm on Verizon, but we've had 4G here in the SF Bay Area since basically day one. Last time I did a speed test it was 30Mbps+.

I've only seen my phone revert to 3G a few times, once deep in a valley in the middle of the Santa Cruz mountains, and once out in the yellow grassy hills east of the Altamont pass.

4.25Mbps down, 0.85Mbps up on AT&T 4G (not LTE) on my iPhone 4S. Not too shabby for FauxG. I get about 30-45Mbps on my AT&T LTE mi-fi though.

Downtown Chicago here.
