Actually, that isn't too far fetched. Bear in mind that NYC is the most populous city in the US and it has over 8 million residents. In fact, if you just count the 10 most populous cities in the US, that accounts for over 23 million residents. And these population counts are just the people who actually live within these cities, and doesn't count the people who live outside these cities but are still within the LTE coverage area. For example, the NYC LTE coverage area stretches out into Long Island, part of upstate NY, and NJ. Besides, AT&T claims that by the end of 2011, they will have LTE available to 80 million Americans, and yet they only expect to have LTE rolled out to 15 cities (the first phase of 5 cities will go live next week).
