AT&T plans to investment nearly $50 million in the Massachusetts wireless network in 2008. As part of its investment plan, the company will bring its 3G mobile broadband network to more cities and towns in the region.
By the end of 2008, the company will add 3G technology to 214 cell sites in the state. In addition to expanding its 3G network, AT&T also plans to add six new cell sites in Massachusetts in 2008.
According to the company, several sites have already gone live, including those in South Natick, Andover and Hampden. New coverage will also be added in Quincy near Marina Bay, in Grafton along Route 140 as well as in the town of Swampscott.
Michelle Consalvo, vice president of external affairs for AT&T in Massachusetts, said: Our 2008 technology investment is a tangible measure of our desire to provide our customers with unsurpassed service and delivers on our promise to further innovation that will help grow the state’s overall economic well being.
