For more information, contact: Teresa Mask Media Relations/AT&T Michigan (248) 205-0161 teresa.mask@att.com AT&T EXPANDS MOBILE INTERNET WIRELESS CAPACITY BETWEEN GRAND RAPIDS AND LANSING Additional Spectrum Expected to Improve Connectivity and Performance of Mobile Internet Data and Voice Connectivity LANSING, MICH., JAN. 6, 2013— Customers traveling along I-96 between Grand Rapids and Lansing are expected to experience improved mobile Internet coverage and voice performance as a result of continued investment and innovation by AT&T.* The company has completed a key initiative in its ongoing efforts to enhance the wireless capacity and performance of its mobile Internet network along the interstate. The network enhancement adds new layers of frequency, also known as “carriers,” to eight cell sites located within Ionia and Kent counties to more efficiently manage available spectrum and increase mobile Internet capacity. The expansion helps manage ever-growing demand for mobile Internet services by allocating more network resources for AT&T’s mobile Internet network. “We’re always looking for new opportunities to provide an enhanced customer experience, and our investment in the local wireless network is just one way we’re accomplishing that,” said Jim Murray, president, AT&T Michigan. “We’re working to build a 4G network that’s smarter and better to provide our customers with a superior mobile Internet experience.”
  • 2. These investments help to ensure that Michigan residents continue to enjoy the best possible experience over the AT&T network, whether at home, at work or on the go. The great performance of AT&T’s 4G LTE network continues to be validated: • • • AT&T has the fastest and now most reliable 4G LTE network.** Based on our analysis of Nielsen data, AT&T has the highest success rate for delivering mobile content across nationwide 4G LTE networks. Meanwhile, our 4G LTE service was recognized as having faster average download and upload speeds than any of our competitors in PCWorld/TechHive’s most recent 20-market speed tests – the second consecutive year that AT&T has ranked 1st overall. PCWorld/TechHive also ranked AT&T’s as the fastest combination of 3G and 4G services in the 20 cities it tested.*** And AT&T was named America’s fastest 4G LTE network in PC Magazine’s 2013 Fastest Mobile Networks 30-market study – sweeping the top rankings in all six U.S. regions from coast to coast: Northeast, Southeast, North-Central, South-Central, Northwest and Southwest.**** In addition, RootMetrics® has awarded AT&T for strongest overall call, text, and data performance in multiple markets since January of this year ***** Across the region and the state, AT&T’s 2013 investments have resulted in expansion and enhancement of our 4G LTE network, which provides ultra-fast speeds. AT&T 4G LTE is now available within the tri-county area of Oakland, Macomb and Wayne.]. Nationwide, nearly 250 million Americans have access to AT&T 4G LTE service. AT&T’s focus to deliver the best possible mobile Internet experience goes beyond 4G to embrace additional connection technologies. AT&T operates the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network****** including more than 32,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots at popular restaurants, hotels, bookstores and retailers, and provides access to more than 461,000 hotspots globally through roaming agreements. Most AT&T smartphone customers get access to our entire national Wi-Fi network at no additional cost, and Wi-Fi usage doesn’t count against customers’ monthly wireless data plans. Over the past six years (2007-2012), AT&T invested more than $116 billion into its wireless and wireline networks across the country. Since 2007, AT&T has invested more capital into the U.S.
