DETROIT — AT&T Inc. Thursday announced an upgrade to two mobile internet cell sites in St. Clair and Metamora to expand AT&T 4G LTE coverage for area residents and businesses.
In St. Clair, the network enhancement adds a new layer of frequency, also known as a “carrier,” in an area near Bowman and South Range Road. In Metamora, west of Hadley Road and south of M-62 is the area where the improvements will be most noticed.
AT&T launched its 4G LTE network in Detroit in September 2012. The new cell sites are one part of AT&T’s ongoing efforts to expand 4G LTE coverage.
This launch is part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP, a three-year investment plan announced in Fall 2012 to expand and enhance its 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.
Over the past six years (2008 to 2013), AT&T invested more than $140 billion into its wireless and wireline networks.
