AT&T allies more than 20 upgrades

AT&T* has upgraded its wireless network within Scioto County with more than 20 enhancements during 2015. The improvements include adding greater capacity and speeds to cell sites in the area. Across Ohio in 2015, AT&T made more than 680 upgrades to its wireless network.

People using the AT&T wireless network in Scioto County now enjoy more than 10 local cell sites with increased capacity. That’s thanks to added layers of frequency known as “carriers.” AT&T also expanded the band of radio frequencies used on more than a half-dozen towers. That increases speeds.

“Businesses and residents are increasingly dependent upon quick and efficient mobile Internet access in our fast-paced world,” said State Senator Joe Uecker. “As the Chairman of the Ohio Broadband Caucus, expanding and improving access is one of our top priorities. AT&T’s investment in Scioto County will help encourage businesses to expand and is a great step toward improving our regional economic development in Scioto County.”

“AT&T’s thousands of Ohio employees are focused on providing an enhanced customer experience. Our investment in the local wireless network is one way we’re accomplishing that,” said Adam Grzybicki, president, AT&T Ohio.

We constantly invest in our network to give customers the high-quality services they need to stay connected. This helps people across Scioto County get the best possible experience over the AT&T network, whether at home, at work or on the go.

From 2009 through 2014, AT&T invested nearly $140 billion including investments in our wireless and wireline networks and acquisitions of wireless spectrum and operations. Since 2009, AT&T has invested more in the U.S. than any other public company. In September the Progressive Policy Institute ranked AT&T No. 1 on its list of U.S. “Investment Heroes.”
