Breaking: AT&T LTE now live in the Hampton Roads, VA, area

If you’re an AT&T customer living in the Hampton Roads, Virginia, area (Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, and Suffolk), today is a great day for you. We have confirmed that AT&T’s 4G LTE service is now live for customers with LTE devices in the area. Customers with AT&T LTE devices should power down and power up their phones if they aren’t seeing LTE service already.

With AT&T bringing LTE online they join both Sprint and Verizon in offering customers a true 4G experience, including droves of AT&T iPhone 5 customers who have been patiently waiting for this day. Speed tests confirm LTE speeds are indeed here, showing 40 Mbps or more download speeds, further supporting tests in other markets showing AT&T having the fastest LTE network.
