AT&T Upgrades Network

DETROIT — AT&T Inc. says it has added a new 4G LTE cell site in Beverly Hills, and has upgraded dozens more other cell sites raound the state.

The Beverly Hills site is south of 14 Mile Road, between Lahser
Road and Bellvine Trail. The upgraded sites are in the following communities:
* Ann Arbor
* Auburn Hills
* Bloomfield Hills
* Brighton (two sites)
* Canton Township
* Commerce Township
* Dearborn (three sites)
* Detroit (three sites)
* Ferndale
* Fraser
* Harper Woods
* Huntington Woods
* Howell
* Lake Orion
* Monroe
* Northville
* Novi
* Pontiac
* Rochester Hills
* Sterling Heights
* Superior Township
* Trenton
* Warren (three sites)
* Westland
* White Lake
* Woodhaven
* Wyandotte
* Ypsilanti

AT&T also says it activated an upgrade to bring faster speeds to 20 cell sites in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, Genesee and Livingston counties.

The upgrade includes adding 4G LTE to three existing sites on the Distributed Antenna System (DAS) at Ford Field. A DAS is made of numerous, small antennas that distribute AT&T wireless network coverage. It provides extra cellular capacity and shortens the
distance a call or text must travel. It is essentially like adding more lanes to the highway.

The improved cell sites are located in parts of several communities, including:
* Anchor Bay
* Ann Arbor
* Auburn Hills (two sites)
* Birmingham
* Clawson
* Detroit (six sites, including the Warrendale neighborhood and
Ford Field)
* Eastpointe
* Flint
* Holly
* Huron Township
* Rochester Hills
* Novi
* Webberville
* Webster Township

People using those towers will be using an expanded band of radio frequencies. That means greater speeds and additional capacity. Additional information about AT&T products and services is available at http://about.att.com.
