AT&T to Launch LTE in Five Cities in Summer of 2011

  1. Om, what makes a market appealing to test these technologies? Is it policy, ease of install, anticipated rate of adoption?

    My intuition is continually off on what markets these networks are launched in and I’m having a hard time with the reasoning.

    Thanks,

  2. AT&T accelerates LTE deployment, and somehow that’s an indictment of the FCC’s effectiveness? Wow, that’s an amazing leap.

    These markets were probably chosen by their proximity to engineering HQ, the state of their spectrum and backhaul, and clean government.

    Markets like NYC and SF where zoning boards are holding up tower siting applications until palms are greased will be the last to get LTE, and that’s as it should be.
