DETROIT — AT&T Inc. said it is expanding its fast 4G LTE data network into areas around the Great Lakes Bay region and West Michigan.
In Isabella, Saginaw, Midland and Bay counties, additional capacity has been added to six cell towers in the region, which is like adding more lanes to a highway.
Upgrades can found in three areas of Mount Pleasant at Towers and West Campus drives, along South Nottawa Road, south of West Pickard Road and at Broadway Road and US-127. In Midland, the upgrades will be noticed around East Ashby adn South Poseyville roads, in Bridgeport Charter Township at M-46, and near Williamson Road. In Bay City, the faster speeds will be noted between Broadway Street and Michigan Avenue.
There was also additional capacity added to a cell tower in Grand Haven that will provide faster speeds in the area around Fulton and South Ferry streets.
And in southwest Lower Michigan additional capacity was added to four cell towers. The towers with capacity added are located in Coloma, near M-140 at Van Road; New Buffalo, near I-94 at Maudlin Road; Three Oaks, south of west Kruger Road, and in Van Buren State Park, along US-31.
AT&T says it invested more than $1.7 billion from 2012 through 2014 to improving its network statewide, part of a $140 billion nationwide investment from 2009 to 2014. Since 2009, AT&T has invested more in the United States than any other public company. In a September 2014 report, the Progressive Policy Institute ranked AT&T No. 1 on its list of U.S. “Investment Heroes.”
