Since the beginning of 2011, AT&T has added 34 new cell sites in the Philadelphia area to improve its service in the region, according to a press release.
Based on our report, it appears that the company has grown its network back-end capacity, added two new cell towers and improved broadband speed capacity.
From 2009 to 2011, AT&T says it has invested more than $350 million in 1,825 wireless network upgrades in the Philly region up from 961 recorded last August.
The carrier was recently featured in CNN Money for its roughly $20 billion in national network upgrades resulting in less dropped calls, though the article notes that consumers are still slow to change their opinion on what was once “the most hated wireless carrier in America.”
Full disclosure: AT&T was a Philly Tech Week sponsor.
