Congressman Ben Ray Lujan introduced Chairman Stephenson, who was selected for the award because of AT&T’s role as manager of Sandia Labs in its early days. AT&T marked the occasion by providing the museum $40,000 to expand its STEM education and outreach programs.

AT&T Boosts Network Coverage in The Pit

Posted by AT&T New Mexico Team

New Network Technology Gives Better Connection on Game Days

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M, Feb. 4, 2019 – When a big play happens this season, Lobos fans can enjoy stronger connections as they share the moment with friends and family. AT&T* boosted its network at Dreamstyle Arena – The Pit with a new antenna system that will provide faster, more reliable wireless service.

AT&T upgraded its network by installing a new Distributed Antenna System (DAS). A DAS is made of numerous, small antennas that distribute AT&T wireless network coverage. It shortens the distance a call or text must travel. Simply put—calls, texts and posts are less likely to get stuck in a data “traffic jam.”

“When our customers cheer on the Lobos, we want them to have a great network experience,” said Terri Nikole Baca, president of AT&T New Mexico. “We’ve improved the network so they can easily make a call or share their experiences on social media.”

AT&T also recently added a new cell tower to its 4G LTE network at University of New Mexico to help provide faster, more reliable wireless service on campus. These upgrades are part of AT&T’s ongoing efforts to increase speeds, add capacity and expand network availability using the latest technology.

AT&T Upgrades University of New Mexico Network

Posted by AT&T New Mexico Team

New Cell Tower Will Help Provide Faster Wireless Service

AT&T* added a new cell tower to its 4G LTE network at University of New Mexico’s campus to help give customers faster, more reliable wireless service.

The upgrade will help customers get the most out of their mobile devices and provide better network connectivity for streaming videos, sharing on social media or texting family and friends.

“We know how important it is for students to stay connected,” said Terri Nikole Baca, president of AT&T New Mexico. “We want to provide the best possible mobile experience, and we constantly invest in our local networks to accomplish that goal.”

AT&T invested nearly $80 million in its Albuquerque area wireless and wired networks during 2015-2017. These upgrades are part of AT&T’s ongoing efforts to increase speeds, add capacity and expand network availability using the latest technology.  By building out its 4G LTE network, AT&T is laying the foundation for mobile 5G, the next advance in network technologies.

2018 is a big year for AT&T New Mexico and our customers

Posted by Terri Nikole Baca

Agencies across the state are signing up to improve their communications through FirstNet built by AT&T. As we continue to invest in the FirstNet platform, we are also preparing to invest in small cell wireless technology designed to improve the experiences of our customers. It’s all part of our commitment to give New Mexicans the network they want and need.

Thank you,

Terri Nikole Baca
External Affairs Director — AT&T New Mexico


New AT&T Built Public Safety Network Put to the Test'

Firstnet

Public safety agencies across New Mexico are beginning to connect to the country’s first communications platform dedicated to first responders. FirstNet built by AT&T, provides public safety clients a much-needed technology upgrade and was designed specifically to meet their particular needs, especially during times of emergency.

Earlier this spring, AT&T provided communications assistance during the state’s first wildfire of the year. As the 28,000 acre Stateline fire quickly spread, AT&T’s FirstNet team worked closely with Union County to ensure their communications needs were met, even bringing in additional equipment and resources.

AT&T stands ready to assist public safety agencies across New Mexico interested in taking their communications to the next level with FirstNet.


Meeting New Mexico’s Needs Today, Building for the Future

Small Cells

We want to thank the New Mexico Legislature for voting to remove barriers that have made it difficult for AT&T and other providers to invest in the latest wireless technology in our communities. Legislation sponsored by Representatives Debbie Rodella and Jim Smith and Senators Jacob Candelaria and Candace Gould streamlines the process for deploying small cells statewide. Small cells are a small, flexible network technology that can be placed on existing infrastructure to boost network capacity in congested areas. That means improved call quality and faster download speeds for wireless users in a small cell’s coverage area. The legislation passed by an overwhelming margin, and Gov. Susana Martinez signed it into law on Feb. 28.


Funding Education and Veteran Initiatives

Heores

This is our community, and we’re always looking for ways to give back. We’re proud of two recent funding announcements for two local organizations that are making a big difference in New Mexico. The United Way of Central New Mexico’s Mission: Graduate program recently won a GradNation Acceleration Grant funded by AT&T. The $100,000 grant will help Mission: Graduate toward its goal of raising graduation rates in our state.

As part of our Thank Our Heroes campaign, AT&T presented $30,000 to the Albuquerque based Desert Forge Foundation. Desert Forge works to help restore the emotional, mental and physical health of returning veterans through meaningful job training, employment and the arts. Desert Forge is using the money to assist with its Warrior Farmers project, which trains veterans to farm and take their products to market.

Join me this Veterans Day to Thank Our Heroes

Posted by Jerry Fuentes & Terri Nikole Baca

Veterans Day is a day of reflection. Reflecting on our country’s past. Reflecting on where we are today. And, most importantly, reflecting on those who fought for our freedoms.

AT&T has a long history of supporting our military and First Responders. We’ve committed to hiring 20,000 veterans by the year 2020. We’re also using our talents to construct a public safety broadband network called FirstNet to connect our First Responders in new ways.

On Veterans Day and every day, we are thankful for our service members.

Join me this Veterans Day in thanking our heroes for their bravery and sacrifices.

Veterans day

To join us in thanking a veteran or military family, share a photo, video or a simple note of gratitude on social media using #ThankOurHeroes.

New school year, new store

Posted by Jerry Fuentes & Terri Nikole Baca

Dear Customers and Colleagues,

We want to wish all students, from kindergarteners to seniors in college, the best of luck with their studies as the new school year begins. This time of the year is exciting and usually synonymous with words like “change” and “transformation”. At AT&T New Mexico, it’s certainly true as we unveil a brand new store in the market that reflects that future of our company. It’s one of the very first of its kind in the country, and we hope you’ll join us in celebrating its opening.

Thanks for reading,

Jerry Fuentes
President — AT&T New Mexico

Terri Nikole Baca
External Affairs Director — AT&T New Mexico


 Join us

This week we will celebrate the grand opening of New Mexico’s first AT&T entertainment-focused retail store. The new store located near Albuquerque’s Cottonwood Mall at 10036 Coors Bypass is one of the first of its kind in the country, and the first in the Southwest, to incorporate this new design.

The new 4000+ sf. store is unlike anything you’ve seen from the traditional mobile retails stores. Entertainment is at the center of the design, and is specifically set up to help customers connect to the content they want whenever or wherever. Gone is the wall of cash registers and counters between AT&T employees and customers. In their place we’ve added individual, comfortable seating areas for you and our reps to work together.. You can read the Albuquerque Business First coverage on our new store here.

Come be one of the first to see it by joining us for our official ribbon cutting this Thursday, September 7th at 9 a.m.
