HARBOR SPRINGS — Customers in the Alanson, Harbor Springs and Pellston areas are expected to experience improved mobile broadband coverage and voice performance as a result of continued investment and innovation by AT&T.

The company announced Thursday that it has completed a key initiative in its ongoing efforts to enhance the wireless capacity and performance of its mobile broadband network throughout Alanson, Harbor Springs and Pellston.

The network enhancement adds new layers of frequency, also known as “carriers,” to seven cell sites in Alanson, Harbor Springs and Pellston to more efficiently manage available spectrum and increase mobile broadband capacity. The expansion helps manage ever-growing demand for mobile broadband services by allocating more network resources for AT&T’s mobile broadband network.

AT&T’s mobile broadband network is based on the 3rd Generation Partnership Project family of technologies that includes GSM and UMTS, the most widely used wireless network platforms in the world. AT&T has the best international coverage of any U.S. wireless provider, providing access to voice service in more than 225 countries and data service in more than 200 countries.

AT&T also operates the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network with more than 29,000 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 our entire national Wi-Fi network at no additional cost, and Wi-Fi usage doesn’t count against customers’ monthly wireless data plans.
