AT&T outlays almost $200 million for Jacksonville upgrades


Boosting pace and performance, consistency and coverage, AT&T committed to investing close to $200 million for wireless and wired networks in the greater Jacksonville area over the past two years, the telecommunications company reported recently.

Not only will private residential account holders gain advantages, the company said, but critical public services will also benefit from ongoing upgrades — such as first responders, dispatchers and other personnel reliant on speedy communications.

In anticipation of increased traffic, in 2015 alone AT&T oversaw over 160 wireless improvements in the Jacksonville area, with added capability for over 100 existing cell sites.

"We're committed to providing our customers fast, reliable, highly secure connectivity," Joe York, AT&T Florida president, said. “We want them to be able to access the Internet at any moment, from almost any device and from anywhere. Our continued investment in Jacksonville brings a host of new, innovative opportunities for residents and businesses."

In 2016, AT&T plans to roll out additional options for streaming DIRECTV from virtually any provider and any device, whether smartphone, tablet, smart TV, streaming hardware or personal computer. The company noted that services would not require annual contracts or satellite equipment.

With television subscribers in 11 Latin American nations in addition to the U.S., AT&T provides high-speed Internet and voice services to millions with outstanding connectivity. The company makes its headquarters in Dallas, Texas.
