AT&T Upgrades Mackinac Island Coverage For Conference

DETROIT — AT&T Inc. announced it has upgraded its 4G LTE network on Mackinac Island to once again boost network coverage at two renowned Mackinac Island hotels, just in time for attendees of the 2016 Detroit Regional Chamber Mackinac Policy Conference.

The company has upgraded the network at the Grand Hotel and Chippewa Hotel, giving guests who are AT&T customers faster, more reliable wireless service.

In 2015, AT&T added a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) at the Grand Hotel and the strategically placed antennas distributed the company’s wireless network coverage to both hotels.

With upgraded 4G LTE service, conference-goers will see better service when reporting news from the conference, posting to social media or texting family and friends.

AT&T last week announced it had invested $1.65 billion between January 2013 and December 2015 in its Michigan wireless and wireline networks.
