U.S. Operator AT&T has announced that it now covers more than 270 million people with 4G LTE. AT&T 4G LTE build expected to be substantially complete by summer 2014.

Over 90 percent of AT&T's mobile data traffic now runs over enhanced backhaul that supports both HSPA+ and 4G LTE data traffic.

AT&T has also agreed to acquire 49 Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) spectrum licenses from Aloha Partners II, L.P. The licenses cover nearly 50 million people in 14 states — California, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas.

This acquisition complements AT&T’s existing AWS holdings. AT&T is adding spectrum in the AWS and other bands to stay ahead of soaring demand for mobile Internet services.
