Big Pine Key First in Florida to Benefit from AT&T Small Cells

Posted by AT&T Newsroom

AT&T Small Cells to Provide Better Connectivity, Lay Foundation for 5G

KEY WEST, Fla., Feb. 12, 2018 — AT&T* is now giving Big Pine Key customers faster mobile internet speeds by deploying small cells. Big Pine Key is the first area in Florida where AT&T has deployed small cells.

We’re using small cells to densify our network. We have installed about 60 small cells on power poles in highly trafficked areas in Big Pine Key. By filling in our network with these small cells, we’re bringing our customers closer to a point of connection. The result is a better, faster and more reliable experience. The use of small cells will also help lay the foundation for our 5G network. 

“We want our customers to have the best possible experience on our network,” said Joe York, AT&T Florida president. “AT&T has the largest and most reliable network,** and we’re providing stronger connections so customers can get the most out of their mobile devices – however they use them.”

We’re using Centralized-RAN (C-RAN) network architecture to build our small cells. That means all the “brains” of each small cell will exist in one location. With this new design, our engineers can add more bandwidth to our network, and improve efficiency for hundreds of cell sites quickly and simultaneously. This design also lets us make network upgrades over software-based technology, which is key to our 5G future. 

We constantly invest in our network to give customers the high-quality services they need to stay connected. Residents in Florida can rely even more on their AT&T network to provide the best possible experience wherever they live, work and play.
