If you're the proud owner of an LTE iPad then you likely follow the news of LTE rollouts as they happen. More markets mean more chances you'll be covered, after all. Verizon is constantly updating their LTE coverage areas and today have announced a bunch of new LTE markets around Georgia and New York. AT&T is still playing catchup in Florida, Texas, and New York. Rogers, meanwhile, is pledging 28 new markets in Canada by 2013.
Overall, the expansion of LTE across carrier networks can be looked at in a number of ways. If you live in rural areas, you're probably not getting much love, but if you live within a large city, you're more likely to attach yourself to an LTE tower and enjoy it for all it is worth. Only the iPad is available right now with LTE so iPhone owners won't be making use of LTE until October and the iPhone 5 at the earliest.
That said though, it could be a blessing in disguise because, by the time an LTE equipped iPhone is unveiled, LTE will be available in even more areas then ever before. Kind of makes you wonder if that's exactly how Apple planned it. Looking for the full list of new coverage areas from Verizon and Rogers? You'll find them below.
