DETROIT (WWJ) — AT&T Monday announced the availability of its mobile Internet network in the rural Hillsdale County communities of Camden and Reading, extending access for advanced mobile services, devices and applications to customers in these areas.
“As the transition continues into the next generation of innovation and communications technology, our goal is always for our customers to have an extraordinary experience,” said AT&T Michgian president Jim Murray. “As part of these communities, 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.”
AT&T says it has the broadest international coverage of any U.S. wireless provider, providing access to voice service in more than 225 countries and data service in more than 205 countries. AT&T also offers voice and data roaming coverage on more than 140 major cruise ships, as well as mobile Internet services in more than 145 countries.
AT&T also says it operates the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network, including more than 31,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots at popular restaurants, hotels, bookstores and retailers across the country. 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.
AT&T also is a leading developer of Distributed Antenna Systems, which utilize multiple small antennas to maximize coverage and speed within stadiums, convention centers, office buildings, hotels and other areas where traditional coverage methods are challenging.
Over the past five years, AT&T invested more than $115 billion into operations and into acquiring spectrum and other assets that have enhanced our wireless and wired networks. Since 2007, AT&T has invested more capital into the U.S. economy than any other public company. In a July 2012 report, the Progressive Policy Institute ranked AT&T No. 1 on its list of U.S. “Investment Heroes.”
