AT&T brings LTE to Tacoma, boosts Seattle area service

AT&T finally is bringing 4G LTE service to the Tacoma area, two months after it began offering it in Seattle and a year after it began offering LTE in other states.

The company plans to announce the regional expansion Wednesday.

AT&T LTE is now available in Tacoma, Federal Way, Auburn, Lakewood and Puyallup. The company also is upgrading service in Seattle, Bellevue, Bothell, Edmonds, Kirkland, Lynnwood, Redmond, Renton, Tukwila and Woodinville.

AT&T has been spending about $20 billion a year on network upgrades, including the rollout of LTE, which is emerging as the new standard used by all major carriers. Verizon Wireless was first to offer LTE in the area, starting in 2010, and AT&T has been racing to catch up.

To take advantage of the faster speeds on LTE networks, people need to have LTE-capable phones and mobile devices.
