DETROIT — AT&T Inc. Wednesday announced a further expansion of its high-speed 4G LTE wireless data network.
AT&T announced it has upgraded 19 mobile Internet cell sites throughout the southeast Michigan region, and one in northeast Lower Michigan.
The network enhancement adds new layers of frequency, also known as “carriers,” to various communities in Oakland, Washtenaw, Livingston, Genesee and St. Clair communities.
Faster download speeds will be noted in the following areas:
In Wayne County, the area of Merriman Road south of Eureka Road in Romulus; and along Ford Road and Winthrop Street in Dearborn.
In Oakland County, east of Main Street, south of East Lincoln Avenue and north of I-696 in Royal Oak; along Woodward Avenue, east of Pierce Street, in Birmingham; and along I-75 in Troy, Auburn Hills and Clarkston, as well as in parts of Wixom and Highland Township.
In Macomb County, southeast of I-94 and near 23 Mile Road in New Baltimore.
In Livingston County, at Brighton Lake and Rickett roads in Brighton.
In Genesee County, west of US-23 and near Silver Lake Road in Fenton.
In St. Clair County, near Starville and Swartout roads in Clay Township; and in parts of Port Huron.
In Washtenaw County, south of Packard Road and east of Carpenter Road in Ann Arbor.
AT&T also announced an expansion of its 4G LTE service in the Alpena area, along M-32 near Herron and Taylor Hawks Road.
The expansions are part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP, a multi-year plan to invest for growth, announced in 2012. As part of Project VIP, AT&T is deploying small cell technology, macro cells and additional Distributed Antenna Systems, which will 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.
