Looks like AT&T is on track to hit that year-end 15 market LTE goal, after all. John Stephens, the operator’s CFO / SVP, just went public with plans to officially launch that 700MHz service in New York City sometime this month, according to a statement made at the UBS 39th Annual Global Media and Communications Conference. The network’s currently undergoing testing in the Big Apple, as we reported in our Nitro HD hands-on and review, but the time seems nigh for eager subs to partake of the blazing radio waves. There’s certainly no lack of handset options either, with the HTC Vivid, Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and the aforementioned LG phone all poised to lead you into “true” 4G territory. Now, if only the carrier would give us a solid date. We’ll keep you updated as further details roll in, but in the meantime, check out the official presser after the break.
