LTE Coverage Progression Animation


In 2010, when LTE was first launched, only 7.5% of the total US population had access to the now-standard 4G speeds. Now, in 2014, roughly 99.3% of the US can enjoy faster speeds. But have you ever wondered how it happened? Well, now you can watch the virus-like spread of the LTE network across the US with this cool animation.

Created by Mosaik Solutions, these maps were created using public information from the records of mobile phone companies like AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile. On this nifty page, you can play, pause and cackle with glee as the virus of speedy internet quickly spreads across the country (or maybe that’s just me). Either way, it’s pretty entertaining to watch.
