ESCANABA — AT&T Inc. says it has turned on its high-speed 4G LTE voice and data network in the Escanaba area.
Those who live and work east of M-35, near US-2 and County Road
426, will most notice the improvements to the network.
The network offers faster speeds, better reliability and more efficient
use of wireless spectrum than earlier 3G networks.
“We continue to see demand for mobile Internet skyrocket, and our
4G LTE network in Escanaba responds to what customers want from
their mobile experience — more, faster, reliably, on the best devices,”
said Jim Murray, president, AT&T Michigan.
This expansion is part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP, a three-year
investment plan announced in 2012 to expand and enhance AT&T’s
IP broadband networks. Through this investment, AT&T is supporting its customers’ growing desire for high-speed Internet access and new mobile, app and cloud-based services.
As part of Project VIP, AT&T plans to add macro cell sites nationwide
by year-end 2015, as well as deploy small cells and add Distributed
Antenna Systems to increase the density of its wireless network.
