Just in time for the launch of Apple's LTE-capable iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad, AT&T this week turned on its 4G LTE network in 24 markets across the U.S.

The announcement of the 24 new markets comes as AT&T also began sales of Apple's latest iPads, which feature high-speed 4G LTE radios, along with the iPhone 5.

A total of 16 new LTE-capable markets were announced by AT&T on Friday. They are:

  • Jonesboro, Ark.
  • Pensacola, Fla.
  • Portland, Maine
  • Provo-Orem, Utah
  • Saratoga & Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
  • South Bend, Ind.

Those 16 new locations were joined by eight more that were announced by AT&T earlier this week. Those markets were:
  • Anne Arundel County, Md.
  • Daytona Beach, Fla.
  • Denver, Colo.
  • Louisville, Ken.
  • Milwaukee, Wis.

AT&T said Friday that its 4G LTE network covers more than 150 million people in 103 markets across the U.S., a number that more than doubles the company's LTE coverage as of the end of 2011. More expansions are planned through the end of the year.

AT&T plans to have its LTE network reach 250 million people by the end of 2013, and 300 million by the end of 2014.
