Enhancing our network in Maine

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 Maine.

AT&T Invests More Than $40 Million Dollars Over 3-Year Period to Boost Local Networks in Maine

Posted by AT&T Maine Team

At AT&T1, we've invested more than $40 million dollars in our Maine wireless and wired networks during 2015-2017. These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and businesses. They also improve critical services that support public safety and first responders.

In 2017, AT&T made more than 51 wireless network upgrades in Maine.

"AT&T continues our commitment to enhancing our Maine network in new and innovative ways," said Patricia Jacobs, President of AT&T – New England. "We are working closely with state and local leaders to boost capacity and speed and provide the necessary backbone for the next generation of technology."

The AT&T LTE network now covers more than 400 million people in North America. Notable Maine network enhancements in 2017 included:

  • 49 additional carriers
  • 1 new bandwidth expansions
  • 1 new transmission site

By building out our 4G LTE network, we're 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 of our network using the latest technology.

Since the formation of the FirstNet public-private partnership a little over a year ago, governors from all 50 states, 5 territories and D.C. recognized the value of FirstNet, joining in its mission to strengthen and modernize public safety's communications capabilities.

FirstNet is a new nationwide communications platform dedicated to America's public safety community. As we build, deploy and evolve FirstNet, we will build upon our current and planned investments in Maine to help ensure public safety's network delivers the coverage and cutting-edge capabilities first responders expect – today and for decades to come.

For the 4th year in a row, AT&T earned the top spot in the telecommunications industry on FORTUNE's Most Admired Companies list in 2018. We also placed No. 49 among the 50 most admired companies across all industries.

We were ranked first or second in all 9 attributes to compile the list, including innovation, people management, quality of management, long-term investment value, quality of products/services and global competitiveness.
