AT&T has upgraded a mobile Internet cell site in Catonsville that will expand 4G LTE mobile coverage for Catonsville and Ellicott City residents and businesses.
The upgrades to a cell site along River Road are part of AT&T's rollout of 4G LTE, the carrier's latest generation of wireless network technology. The network is designed to make mobile Internet speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G, the company said.
AT&T launched its 4G network in Baltimore in October 2011. During the past two years, AT&T has invested nearly $650 million in wireless and wired network upgrades in Maryland, including nearly $425 million in the greater Baltimore area.
"Our goal is for our customers to have an extraordinary experience whether they are headed to class or the golf course, and they'll be able to download, upload, stream and game faster than ever before," said J. Michael Schweder, president of AT&T Mid-Atlantic.
