    Default iPhone 5 LTE working in your city on AT&T?

    I noticed that shows AT&T as having LTE coverage in San Jose. I am currently at SJSU right now, but I have never seen that little indicator showing that I am on LTE. Anybody else notice their "LTE cities" are also lacking? Or am I missing something? My LTE is on in settings...

    I am right on the edge of LTE which is very frustrating. I never see LTE even though I have had several AT&T tech support employees tell me that I should see it. If I type in my address on the AT&T site to see if I have LTE it says I do, but I guess because I am right on the edge it shows up as LTE coverage even though I don't have it.

    I'm in Atlanta and it's been nothing but amazing since day 1...I'm averaging over 30mbps from downtown and then way outside the perimeter.

    I fear I'm right outside of the border. I'm in Silicon Valley man!... There should be exemplary coverage here.

    Iím in a west-side suburb of Phoenix... and Iíve had decent AT&T LTE coverage since I got my iPhone 5. My signal strength is usually at or just over -100db, so the signal could be better, but I get speeds upwards of 25mbps down and 4+ mbps up.

    I'm also in Phoenix just north of getting an LTE signal.
    The way I see, I don't need LTE at home as I have wifi. I need it when I'm out and about and in most places in Phoenix, LTE is available. I get around 30-35 speed on avg there

    I figured it out! I needed to call AT&T and confirm that I have switched phones. They did not provide LTE since I was still using an iPhone 4 in their system.

    Evidently AT&T turned on LTE in Mobile two nights ago. I still contend a city named Mobile should be first in mobile coverage.

    Looks like AT&T is rolling out LTE to a lot more places:

    AT&T lights up LTE in a slew of new locals | iMore.com

    Been waiting for AT&T LTE to light up on your iPhone 5 or cellular-equipped iPad? Well, as part of AT&T's announced $14 billion network build-out over the next three years, a bunch of new places just went live:
    • Mobile, Ala.
    • Jonesboro, Ark.
    • Pensacola, Fla.
    • South Bend and Mishawaka, Ind.
    • Saratoga/Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
    • Columbus, Ohio
    • Toledo, Ohio
    • Eugene, Ore.
    • Corvallis, Ore.
    • Portland, Ore.
    • Greenville, S.C.
    • Columbia, S.C.
    • Charleston, S.C.
    • El Paso, Texas

    Today's launch comes on the heels of other cities going live this week, including:

    • Minneapolis/St. Paul
    • Provo-Orem, Utah
    • Denver
    • Anne Arundel County in Maryland
    • Daytona Beach
    • York, Penn.
    • Tacoma, Wash.
    • Milwaukee, Wis.
    • Louisville, Ken.

    That's on top of AT&T's expanded LTE coverage in Fairfield County, Conn., as well as downriver Wayne and Monroe near Detroit. AT&T says its LTE coverage has doubled in 2012 and is now in 103 markets, with more to come this year.

    I know it's pretty pitiful here at SJSU. It varies depending on the time of day because of the amount of students using it.

    Still waiting for LTE in Santa Cruz, CA. Considering we were practically the last to get 3G, it's probably going to be a while. Haha. I'm switching to VZW.
