WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- It looks like AT&T may have been caught telling a fib. The company has announced a plan to cover 96 percent of the US population with 4G LTE service by the end of 2014.
That statement seems to show AT&T told regulators a whopper last year while fighting for its doomed T-Mobile merger. The company said then that without T-Mobile, it was "very unlikely" it would expand 4G LTE service beyond 80 percent of the country.
The FCC called AT&T out, saying it believed the company was going to expand with or without T-Mobile. AT& T denied it at the time, but here's this new proclamation: AT&T says it never lied and circumstances had changed.
