Well AT&T still has a long way to go before they can catch up with the LTE coverage that Verizon has, but they are rapidly catching up. AT&T flipped the switch on a handful of cities yesterday, and now added 44 cities to the list to get LTE before the year is over with. For those that don’t know what LTE is the acronym stands for Long Term Evolution and you can get speeds up to 72mbps theoretically. Now you won’t see those kinds of speeds usually, the fastest I’ve seen in the speedtests were around 55mbps which should be fast enough to blow through your data plan.

So who are the 44 lucky cities to get LTE from big blue before 2013? Here they are:

  • Albany, N.Y.
  • Albuquerque, N.M.
  • Allentown, Penn.
  • Birmingham, Ala.
  • Boise, Idaho
  • Charleston, S.C.
  • Cincinnati, Ohio
  • Columbia, S.C.
  • Columbus, Ohio
  • Detroit, Mich.
