AT&T Boosts Network Speeds in Iowa

Posted by AT&T Iowa Team

4G LTE Expansions Will Give Customers and First Responders Better Access to Mobile Internet

AT&T customers and FirstNet subscribers across Iowa got a big boost in wireless connectivity. We enhanced 4G LTE coverage in 13 cities to help give customers and first responders faster, more reliable wireless service. The cities are Audubon, Bellevue, Centerville, Dixon, Elma, Fairbank, Hampton, Iowa Falls, Lone Tree, Manning, Riceville, St. Ansgar and Washington.

Our investment will help customers get the most out of their mobile devices. With 4G LTE service, customers will experience better network connectivity while streaming videos, sharing on social media or texting family and friends.

By building out our 4G LTE network, we are laying the foundation for 5G, the next advance in network technologies. We’re boosting network speeds and capacity, as we continue to expand the availability and capacity of our network using the latest technology. These upgrades will also benefit public safety and first responders on FirstNet – public safety’s dedicated communications platform.

“We’re excited to see the buildout of new wireless facilities across Iowa that will give our first responders the cutting-edge tools they need to serve and protect those who may be in harm’s way,” said Lt. Tom Lampe, bureau chief for the Iowa Department of Public Safety Communications. “We look forward to continuing our work with AT&T to rollout the exclusive FirstNet communications platform in Iowa to help our first responders.”

FirstNet is being built with AT&T in a public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority. It’s designed to help first responders in Iowa and across the country connect to the critical information they need – when they need it – so they can keep themselves and the communities they serve safer.

We’re committed to our networks in Iowa

From 2016 to 2018, we invested more than $100 million in our Iowa wireless and wired networks. These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for Iowans and their businesses.
