AT&T installing LTE equipment in Apple Stores?

AT&T has installed 4G LTE equipment in at least one “major” Apple retail store, according to a new report. Citing an anonymous source, Engadget reports that one piece of the equipment supports only the 700MHz and AWS bands—both of which AT&T plans to use for its LTE network should its acquisition of T-Mobile receive regulatory approval. The picture accompanying the post is unfortunately of little use, as it does not show any specific, device-identifying labels, nor does it offer up any evidence suggesting that the photo was taken inside an Apple retail location. The report goes on to claim that the Apple Store in question, and all those in the region, are now trying to increase staffing by roughly 30 percent, for reasons unrelated to the company’s traditional holiday-season hiring.
