In the first half of 2013, AT&T (NYSE: T) said it invested more than USD275m in its wireless and wired networks in Michigan.
The investments included deployment of new macro cell sites, small cells and Distributed Antenna Systems across the state as a part of AT&T´s Project Velocity IP, a three-year investment plan announced last fall to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks. The company also expanded and enhanced its 4G LTE network, which provides ultra-fast mobile Internet speeds, and deployed new Wi-Fi hot spots.
AT&T 4G LTE is now available in multiple areas of the state, including Metro Detroit, Flint, Saginaw, Bay City, Lansing, Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids. Nationwide, more than 225m Americans have access to AT&T 4G LTE service. By year-end 2013, AT&T expects to cover nearly 270m people and 400 markets with its 4G LTE network.
