AT&T Brings Faster Network To Fort Wayne Area

AT&T has activated an upgrade to bring faster speeds to 17 cell towers in the Fort Wayne area. People using the network in these locations should see better service when they’re watching videos, posting to social media or texting family and friends.

People using those towers will be using an expanded band of radio frequencies. That means greater speeds and additional capacity. It’s like going faster in your car when a roadway has extra lanes.

We’ve also enhanced 16 additional cell towers in Allen County with extra 4G LTE capacity in 2016. This is like adding more lanes to a highway carrying traffic from a customer’s device to the cell tower, resulting in faster speeds and more reliable service.

“Whether it’s growing jobs, educating our children, or ensuring our health care professionals have quick access to crucial information, these improvements will have a positive impact on Northeast Indiana,” said Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry. “We appreciate that AT&T continues to invest in our communities, and supports our efforts to make the area an even better place to live and work.”

“Our customers are living their lives on the go. We know they rely on mobile Internet every day. That’s why we’re upgrading our network for residents and businesses in the Fort Wayne area,” said Bill Soards, president of AT&T Indiana. “We want to help them get the most out of their mobile devices – whether they’re watching videos, texting, or using social media.”

AT&T has invested nearly $2 billion in its wireless and wired networks in Indiana between 2013 through 2015, driving a wide range of upgrades to reliability, coverage, speed and performance for residents and business customers.

We constantly invest in our network to give customers the high-quality services they need to stay connected. This helps Indiana residents get the best possible experience over the AT&T network, whether at home, at work or on the go.
