DETROIT — AT&T Inc. has announced four new cell towers and a distributed antenna system that will improve its 4G LTE high-speed data service in several locations around Oakland and Macomb counties.
The four new cell towers are located in:
• Fenton, at South Long Lake and Fenton roads
• South Lyon, at Pontiac Trail and Six Mile Road
• Waterford Township, near Crescent Lake and Highland roads
• Warren, at 12 Mile and Van Dyke roads
AT&T also said it added a distributed antenna system in Bloomfield Township, just north of Lone Pine Road and west of Telegraph Road. Customers in Bloomfield Township, Bloomfield Hills, Franklin and West Bloomfield Township will also notice better, more consistent wireless service, the company said.
AT&T launched its 4G LTE network in Detroit in 2012.
Over the last six years, 2009-2014, AT&T invested nearly $140 billion including investments in its wireless and wireline networks and acquisitions of wireless spectrum and operations, including more than $1.7 billion in Michigan. Since 2009, AT&T has invested more in the U.S. than any other public company. In a 2014 report, the Progressive Policy Institute ranked AT&T No. 1 on its list of U.S. “Investment Heroes.”
