AT&T Invested $65 Million in 850Mhz 3G Upgrades for San Francisco
AT&T announced it's invested nearly $65 million in upgrading their 3G network in San Francisco through Q3 2009:
“More than ever before, customers look to wireless communications to stay in touch with family, friends and business colleagues,” said Terry Stenzel, AT&T vice president and general manager for Northern California/Reno. “The additional spectrum helps to enhance the 3G network so that our customers have the best experience when they make a call, check an e-mail, download a video or song, access applications or surf the Internet on their AT&T device.”
They also mentioned SF will get some HSPA 7.2 next year as well. (First towers to go up around Cupertino in an effort to keep the iPhone-makers happy? We joke.)
Given the last update in AT&T's lawsuit against Verizon's "map for that" commercials, where Verizon basically said AT&T had failed to invest in their network infrastructure, we're wondering if we'll see more press releases like this (or emails like this) in the near future?
