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.

We are committed to your safety

Posted by John Emra

The holiday season comes with a lot of good cheer, but also many distractions. AT&T New England wants to drive home the message that we are committed to your safety and remind everyone that distracted driving is never OK.

This month, our team has been out in communities around New England hosting IT CAN WAIT events to inform drivers about the dangers of distracted driving and to encourage them to stay safe on the road.

In Connecticut, we have continued our innovative partnership with the state’s Department of Transportation, which has brought our IT CAN WAIT message to thousands of high school students through interactive assemblies. In Vermont and Massachusetts, we hosted the IT CAN WAIT Virtual Reality Experience that uses state-of-the-art technology to put participants face-to-face with the very real consequences of distracted driving. And in Rhode Island, we marked the 100th IT CAN WAIT high school assembly in the state, reaching more than 30,000 students, culminating a 6-year partnership with Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Kilmartin.

AT&T research has found nearly 9-in-10 people admit to using their smartphone while driving. People are texting from behind the wheel — they’re checking email, accessing social media and even snapping photos. Nearly 4-in-10 people say that distracted driving is a habit. Sadly, this pattern of behavior has had deadly consequences far too many times.

I encourage you to join the nearly 33 million other people who have visited and taken the pledge to never drive distracted. Help us inspire others to be safe on the road — one pledge could save a life.

From everyone here at AT&T New England, I wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
