FierceWireless reports:

AT&T Mobility will launch commercial LTE service by mid-2011, and will cover between 70 million and 75 million POPs by the end of next year, a top executive said.

Speaking at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2010 Media, Communications & Entertainment Conference, AT&T Operations CEO John Stankey said the company is actively working with its primary LTE vendor partners–Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent to get the network ready for launch. The company is currently conducting LTE trials in Baltimore and Dallas, Stankey said.

Verizon, meanwhile, will reportedly begin rolling out its LTE network in mid-November to about 25 markets.
