DETROIT — AT&T Inc. says it has expanded its 4G LTE high-speed wireless network in southwest Michigan.
AT&T launched 4G LTE in Niles, St. Joseph and Benton Harbor areas in January. The network now includes more parts of Berrien, Van Buren and Allegan counties.
In Allegan County, network improvements will be noticed in areas of Allegan, Plainwell, Ostego, Martin, Gobles, Wayland, Dorr, Hopkins and Shelbyville. In Berrien County, faster speeds will be noticed in Three Oaks and in Galien. And in Van Buren County, the improved technology will be noticed in Hartford and in Bangor.
This expansion is part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP, a three-year investment plan announced in 2012 to expand and enhance the company’s IP broadband networks. 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.
From 2008 to 2013, AT&T says it invested more than $140 billion into its wireless and wireline networks.
