AT&T Inc (NYSE:T) has in the recent years spared no effort to revamp its business operations and the latest development was about the decision to invest about $60 million in its Modesto wireless and wired networks in the period between 2014 and 2016.
These particular investments are expected to enhance over performance, coverage, speed and reliability for businesses and residents. Asides from that, they offer a major lift to the critical service that promotes support public safety and the safety responders.
AT&T has also completed about 1,459 LTE capacity upgrades, 23 new cell sites in 2016, 45 LTE overlays as well as boosting network capacity and new wireless high-speed internet connections. In North America alone, AT&T LTE network has had about 400 million persons covered.
The president of AT&T, Ken McNeely, while addressing a press conference said, “We know that Californians demand a world-class communications network, and we’re committed to maintaining and growing our wired and wireless networks to provide our customers with the fast, reliable, highly secure connectivity they expect, in every corner of the state. We’re proud that our continued investment across California is driving innovation and opening up new possibilities for consumers and entrepreneurs.”
One thing that is for sure is the fact that the unveiling of fiber internet in Modesto has done much towards enhancing the local economy. As a matter of fact, a wide array of businesses across the valley in a huge way depends on connectivity to grow as well as get to compete in the current times’ ever increasing mobile and data-drive marketplace.
It is a great pleasure for AT&T to continue directing its resources in its ability to connect anytime, anywhere.
In some recent times, The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) had taken to setting up a nationwide public safety broadband network which was as a matter of fact to be dedicated to America’s police, EMS personnel and the firefighters.
Rumors are moving about that California could soon be opting-in to the first network and the top end provider promises to build upon its current as well as the planned investments with a much clear focus on the state’s first responders.
Whatever the future brings is something we will just have to wait and see.
