To support growing demand for advanced mobile devices and applications, AT&T announced the activation of a new mobile Internet cell site in Northville Township near Five Mile and Beck roads on Tuesday.
The cell site will enhance coverage for area residents and businesses. With mobile Internet speeds, AT&T customers can surf the Web, download files faster, and enjoy the latest interactive mobile applications.
“AT&T’s innovation and investment in Wayne County means bringing the next generation of technology to local families and job providers,” said state Rep. Kurt Heise (R-Plymouth). “This is the kind of investment that not only helps keep our families connected, but also gives job providers the tools they need to compete in the global economy and that’s exciting news for the region.”
The new cell site is one part of AT&T’s ongoing efforts to drive investment and innovation to deliver the most advanced mobile Internet experience for customers.
“As the transition continues into the next generation of innovation and communications technology, our goal is always for our customers to have an extraordinary experience. As part of these communities, we’re always looking for new opportunities to provide an enhanced customer experience and our investment in the local wireless network is just one way we’re accomplishing that,” said Jim Murray, president of AT&T Michigan.
