BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - AT&T plans to expand its 4G LTE cellular network in North Dakota by the end of the year.

The company already serves most of the state with its 4G wireless, but its faster 4G LTE service only covers a handful of cities.

Corey Draack is a lead network engineer with AT&T.; Draack tells the Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/1l8uFEe ) the company invested more than $80 million on infrastructure in the state from 2010 to 2013. Draak says he doesn’t know the cost of this expansion.

Verizon Wireless expanded its 4G LTE service throughout most of its network statewide by the end of 2013.
