COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* has activated an upgrade to bring faster speeds to more than 125 cell sites in the Columbus area. People using the network in these locations should see better service when they're watching videos, posting to social media or texting family and friends.
People using those towers will be using an expanded band of radio frequencies. That means greater speeds. It's like going faster in your car when a roadway has extra lanes.
"It is a point of pride for a community to have the fastest cellular Internet speeds," said State Representative Mike Duffey from Worthington. "It is awesome to see that wireless companies view central Ohio as the kind of technology-focused community worth investing in with their latest technology."
"Our customers are living their lives on the go. We know they rely on mobile Internet every day. That's why we're upgrading our network for Columbus residents and businesses," said Adam Grzybicki, president of AT&T Ohio. "We want to help them get the most out of their mobile devices – whether they're watching videos, texting, or using social media."
AT&T invested more than $1.6 billion in its Ohio networks from 2012 through 2014. This drives a wide range of upgrades to reliability, coverage, speed and performance for residents and business customers.
