AT&T invests in Bronx network

Technology AT&T upgrades its wireless voice and data network across the Bronx and beyond AT&T* has announced it has added or upgraded cell sites in the Bronx. These include sites in City Island, and earlier this year around Yankee Stadium and in the South Bronx as part of its 2011 initiative to deliver the nation’s most-advanced mobile broadband experience. AT&T has spent $200 million improving its wireline and wireless networks in New York State during the first half of this year alone. The Bronx network enhancements are part of AT&T’s plan to invest in the $20-billion range in its national wireless and wireline networks in 2011. AT&T operates the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network with nearly 27,000 hotspots in the U.S. and provides access to nearly 190,000 hotspots globally through roaming agreements. Most AT&T smartphone customers get access to entire national Wi-Fi network at no additional cost, and Wi-Fi usage doesn’t count against customers’ monthly wireless data plans. AT&T’s mobile broadband network is based on the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) family of technologies that includes GSM and UMTS, the most widely used wireless network platforms in the world. AT&T has the broadest international coverage of any U.S. wireless provider, providing access to voice service in more than 220 countries and data service in more than 200 countries.
