Today, AT&T’s operations CEO, John Stankey, said that his company would be launching its LTE network by mid-2011 and would cover 70-75 million potential customers. The CEO made this known at the “Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2010 Media, Communications & Entertainment Conference” where he was a speaker. Mr. Stankey also noted that AT&T has spent just over $700 million in LTE capital expenditures this year; a figure the company plans to go “far beyond” in 2011. Currently, AT&T is conducting LTE field trials in Baltimore and Dallas.
