Posted by AT&T Newsroom

Collaboration between AT&T Louisiana and ExxonMobil Will Give Customers Better Access to Mobile Internet

Baton Rouge, LA, March 23, 2018  AT&T* has added a cell tower on its 4G LTE network near ExxonMobil Baton Rouge to give customers faster, more reliable wireless service. This new tower is a result of collaboration between AT&T Louisiana and ExxonMobil, and is helping meet the needs of improved wireless connectivity and service at the ExxonMobil Complex and the nearby area of north Baton Rouge, where it is expected to create an economic stimulus.

Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome stated, “This improved service will spur economic growth and improve the quality of life in north Baton Rouge. The expansion and improvement of wireless communications is increasingly important whether it’s helping the daily operations of small business, large industry, education, public safety, health care, or any other segment of our economy. This announcement helps bring more connectivity than ever before to this part of our city, and will prove to be very beneficial.”

Sonia Perez, President of AT&T Louisiana said, “Cooperation like this between AT&T Louisiana and ExxonMobil is a good example of how private sector investment is making a difference for the people of Baton Rouge and many other communities. The new cell tower in north Baton Rouge will enhance and complement AT&T’s existing wireless network for the area.”

“In today’s business environment, it is critical that our entire workforce has access to a state-of-the-art wireless network – connectivity is key,” said ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Refinery Manager Gloria Moncada. “Bringing this new 4G network to our complex truly helps give us a competitive edge while also benefiting the surrounding community.”

AT&T’s 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. This enhancement will also support economic development in the area by improving connectivity for business customers. This helps Baton Rouge residents stay connected while getting the best possible experience over the AT&T network wherever they live, work and play.

By building out the 4G LTE network, AT&T is laying the foundation for the evolution to 5G, the next advance in network technologies. AT&T is increasing network speeds and capacity to continue to expand the availability and capacity of the network using the latest technology.
