Better late than never.

AT&T will launch their first LTE network in mid-2011. It will cover some 70-75 million people by the end of 2011. This news comes via FierceWireless. AT&T Operations CEO John Stankey told them that his company is working with Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent to prepare their 4G network. Trials are ongoing in Baltimore and Dallas now.

Sprint already has 4G (WiMAX) and Verizon is set to launch their LTE network later this year. When you include T-Mo's HSPA+ network as "4G", AT&T will be the last of the major US carriers to support the next wave in mobile Internet. They plan to spend some $700 million on their LTE network in 2010 alone, and to go "far beyond" that amount in 2011.

AT&T will also be implementing a nationwide HSPA+ upgrade this year, which will bring speeds of 7 Mbps to their 3G devices.
