Are all of these new 3G areas HSPA 7.2 or HSPA+ 14.4Mbps and above? (insert "4G" joke here)
3G has been switched on in Beckley, WV. Many areas in Raleigh, Fayette, and Nicholas counties to follow by the end of October.

The air interface of all sites should be HSPA+. Enhanced backhaul seems to entail flat IP infrastructure, amount of backhaul varies.
iPhone 4 on AT&T:
I forgot to add... High desert area I-15 through Barstow now shows 4g.
AT&T... your world, throttled.
Nope - 3G pretty much between Barstow and Needles.
When I used 3G last January between Barstow and Las Vegas, it was pretty decent though (+3Mbps @75Mph on an iPhone 3GS).
Maps updated to 8/5/11. Looks like quite a bit more HSPA+.
FINALLY 3G in Fort Bragg, Caspar and Mendocino on the coast here in Mendocino County! One oddity, they are showing "4G" in Willits, I really can't believe they'd turn it on there before Ukiah. Laytonville, also here in Mendocino County is still ATT 3G less. Alturas in Modoc County still doesn't have 3G either, hopefully soon.

LOL - when I first saw it zoomed out, I thought they had 4G right at your location only up in that area.
Looks like they still need 3G in Lake Almanor (not much 3G less areas in CA now on AT&T).
'4g wannabe' expands a bit into the high desert on 58 towards Boron from Barstow.
Similarly, Cloquet MN has 4G, but a little bit north, Duluth doesn't (town of 12,000 vs city of 86,000)
'4g' in Traverse City, MI
Lol. Yeah, I thought it was Ukiah until I zoomed in. Willits has 5000 and Ukiah has 16000, plus any backhaul is going to hit Ukiah before it gets to Willits, I wonder if it's a mistake. I'm halfway between them, 9 miles south to Ukiah and 12 miles north to Willits from here.
Once they get Laytonville, Alturas, and Chester and Lake Almanor covered in 3G, they'll have 99% of the population and much of the land in NorCal covered. A lot of areas in NorCal though are national forest, Redwoods, state forests, isolated coastal and mountain areas, national park, wilderness, etc. so those areas will probably stay uncovered and/or 3G less indefinitely.

Yeah, I know, I just can't imagine Willits getting it before Ukiah, because if Willits now has the backhaul for it, Ukiah and Redwood Valley definitely do. Are you in Willits? I'm in Redwood Valley.

Southern Illinois south of I-64 *buzzer*
There are a lot of areas here that have LTE that don't get HSPA.
Fiber backhaul for Verizon in Southern Illinois in 2013 - about time.
