DETROIT — AT&T Inc. has activated upgrades to bring faster speeds to nearly 100 cell sites around the state.
Some of the sites were upgraded through software, and others through new hardware, AT&T officials said.
The bandwidth expansion provides additional capacity to the existing 4G LTE on the sites, creating increased data speeds. People using those towers will be using an expanded band of radio frequencies. That means greater speeds and additional capacity.
The improved cell sites are located in parts of several communities, including Allen Park, Alma, Anchor Bay Gardens, Ann Arbor (four sites), Armada (two sites), Attica, Bloomfield Hills, Brandon Township, Brighton (two sites), Canton Township, Capac, Clawson, Clinton Township, Columbus, Commerce Township, Davison, Dearborn, Detroit (two sites), Eastpointe, Farmington Hills, Ferndale, Flint (two sites), Fremont, Green Charter Township, Harrison Township, Hersey, Highland Township, Holly, Howell, Huron Township, Grand Blanc, Imlay City, Jackson, Kochville, Lake Orion (two sites), Lakeville, Lapeer (three sites), Leonard, Linden, Livonia, Marine City, Marion, Milford, Mt.
