AT&T Invests Nearly $450 Million Dollars Over 3-Year Period to Boost Local Networks in Massachusetts

4:28 pm ET August 7, 2019 (PR Newswire) Print

At AT&T1, we've invested nearly $450 Million dollars in our Massachusetts wireless networks during 2016-2018. These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and businesses. We've also improved critical services that support Public Safety and first responders using the FirstNet communications platform.

AT&T's wireless network covers more than 99% of all Americans and has become the fastest wireless network in the nation, according to the second quarter 2019 results from tests taken with Speedtest(R) and analyzed by Ookla(R). 2

In 2018, AT&T made 806 wireless network upgrades in Massachusetts, including:

-- New cell sites

-- LTE bandwidth expansions

-- LTE capacity adds

The AT&T LTE network covers more than 400 million people in North America.

We're now speeding up our wireless build out plans in Massachusetts with tens of millions of dollars dedicated to improving our mobile network," said Patricia Jacobs, President of AT&T New England. "This investment will also pave the path to 5G mobile services in the years ahead."

By building out our 4G LTE network, we're boosting network speeds and capacity, as we continue to expand the availability of our network and upgrade our technology.

Additionally, for the 5th consecutive year we've landed on Fortune magazine's list of the "World's Most Admired" companies. It's also the 6th year in a row we've appeared on the Global Top 50 list - no other telecom company made the Top 50.

Transforming Public Safety Communications

FirstNet is Public Safety's dedicated, nationwide communications platform. It is for all first responders - career and volunteer, urban or rural. It's bringing public safety communications into the 21st century with new, innovative capabilities, helping first responders connect to the critical information they need - every day and in every emergency.

Building upon our current and planned investments in Massachusetts, we continue to extend the reach and increase the capacity of the FirstNet communications platform:

-- Deployed Band 14 spectrum in more than 600 markets nationwide, including Boston, Barnstable, New Bedford, Springfield, Worcester and Pittsfield. Band 14 is high-quality spectrum provided by the First Responder Network Authority. Its signal covers larger geographic areas with less infrastructure to better support rural communities, and it can better reach in-building in more urban areas as compared to higher-MHz spectrum.

-- Massachusetts first responders enjoy the fastest overall experience on FirstNet, compared to any commercial network in the nation, thanks to the specialized capabilities enabled by the physically separate and dedicated FirstNet network core, like always-on priority and preemption. 3

-- Public safety agencies subscribed to FirstNet have 24/7 access to a nationwide fleet of 75 deployable network assets. These assets can either be deployed for planned events or called upon in emergencies to help first responders stay connected and operate faster, safer and more effectively when lives are on the line.

FirstNet is built with AT&T in a public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority - an independent agency within the federal government. This helps ensure that the FirstNet communications platform and service offerings meet the short- and long-term needs of the public safety community.
