AT&T and Gov. Steve Beshear recently announced that the company has invested more than $525 million in its Kentucky wireline and wireless networks over the past three years.
The company will continue to invest in network enhancements as part of AT&T’s planned $19 billion nationwide investment in 2011. This will support plans to enable 4G speeds over a growing portion of the country starting this year along with the launch of LTE beginning mid-year.
“Better wireless coverage drives economic growth, stimulates job creation and equips Kentucky businesses with the ability to compete in a global marketplace,” Beshear stated.
Mary Pat Regan, AT&T Kentucky state president, said AT&T plans the following network improvements across the state of Kentucky in this year:
In 2010, AT&T added more than 35 new cell sites in Kentucky and upgraded more than 150 existing sites to mobile broadband.
The company also announced plans to hire an additional 200 employees at a wireless call center in Grayson. Currently, AT&T employs more than 3,200 employees in Kentucky.
