Enhancing our network in Connecticut

Mobile data traffic on AT&T’s national wireless network increased more than 360,000% from 2007-2017. As streaming video continues to take over the online experience and as new apps and services are introduced, data demand and consumption will only continue to rise. With increasing demand and pressure on the mobile network, we’re working on new and innovative ways to improve and prepare for the future. Small cells can help. Small cells are one example of the improvements we are making that will help satisfy this ever-increasing demand for network capacity. Learn more about small cell efforts in Connecticut.

5G and the future of wireless in Connecticut

Posted by John Emra

Dear Friend,

Last week, Connecticut took an important step forward towards its wireless future when Governor Ned Lamont signed into law a bill that will make it easier to bring new technology to the state.

Small cells lay the foundation for the next generation of wireless technology, including 5G. This legislation, championed by Governor Lamont, Rep. David Arconti, Sen. Norm Needleman, Rep. Charles Ferraro, and Sen. Paul Formica, will facilitate bringing this important technology to more communities around Connecticut, sparking new opportunities for job creation, economic development and innovation. The legislation serves as a good example of the power of public-private partnerships as well as the leadership Governor Lamont has shown in taking concrete steps to grow our economy.

Our team at AT&T Connecticut is dedicated to working with public officials and stakeholders across the state to ensure Connecticut is at the forefront of wireless evolution. In fact, over the past three years, AT&T has invested more than $225 million to boost local networks in this state, with the goal of increasing speed, coverage, reliability and overall performance for customers, public safety and first responders.

You can read more about the new bill signed into law by the Governor, and other ways the next generation of wireless technology will positively impact Connecticut in previous stories on this site.
