AT&T invested $50 million in Delaware wireless and wired networks between 2016-2018. The telecommunications giant says the investments bolstered reliability, coverage, speed, and overall performance for residents and businesses.
In 2018, AT&T made more than 200 wireless network upgrades in Delaware. These upgrades included new cell sites, addition of network capacity, and new wireless high-speed Internet connections.
“Whether you’re working in an office in Wilmington or checking in with work from Rehoboth, you need a strong mobile broadband connection,” said Michael Quaranta, president of the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce. “Thanks to AT&T’s investment in our state, our residents and visitors are better connected.”
AT&T has also made improvements to the FirstNet communications platform. Public safety agencies that subscribe to FirstNet have 24/7 access to a nationwide fleet of 75 deployable network assets. These assets can either be deployed for planned events or called upon in emergencies.
“We’re investing in our network in Delaware to make business growth possible; keep the First State competitive; support public safety; and provide residents and visitors to our towns and beaches with the tools to stay connected and entertained,” said Denis Dunn, president, AT&T Delaware. “We will continue to work with business and government leaders on policies that welcome investment to Delaware.”
