Submission + - AT&T's about-face on 4G (

gambit3 writes: AT&T told regulators a pretty big whopper last year while fighting for its doomed T-Mobile merger. One of the deal's fiercest battle points was 4G access outside major cities. Without T-Mobile, AT&T said it was "very unlikely" that it would expand 4G-LTE service beyond the 80% coverage threshold it already planned to reach by 2013.

Fast-forward 11 months. AT&T says that its $14 billion network investment will allow its 4G service to cover 300 million Americans, the overwhelming majority of the U.S. population, or 96% by 2014.
