AT&T's LTE coverage map

The new iPad drops this week, complete with LTE connectivity, which means many of you may still be trying to decide between AT&T and Verizon. If expanded coverage is a concern, AT&T has just announced a bunch of new cities will be getting 4G goodness between April and early summer.

  • Cleveland, Ohio
  • Akron, Ohio
  • Canton, Ohio
  • Naples, Fla.
  • Bloomoington, Ind.
  • Lafayette, Ind.
  • Muncie, Ind.
  • Baton Rouge, La.
  • New Orleans
  • St. Louis
  • Bryan/College Station, Texas
  • Staten Island, N.Y.

Currently, AT&T's LTE network is live in 28 markets, providing coverage to some 74 million Americans. Unfortunately, while AT&T's LTE iPad will work on Canadian LTE networks as well, Verizon's LTE iPad is exclusive to their network. That means you have to decide which one you're getting up front. You can't just switch SIM cards later. (Why be consumer friendly about it, right?)

Any of you guys holding out for the AT&T LTE model of the new iPad, or are you siding with Verizon on this one?
