DETROIT — AT&T Inc. says it has upgraded its wireless network within southeast Michigan.
The improvements include adding greater capacity or bandwidth and speeds to cell towers within Oakland, Macomb, Wayne, Lapeer and Washtenaw counties.
The bandwidth upgrades were made in the following communities within these counties:
* Lapeer County: Lapeer

“Our Michigan employees are focused on bringing a better mobile experience to southeast Michigan and across the state,” AT&T Michigan President Jim Murray said. “Our investment in the local wireless network is one way we’re accomplishing that. We’re seeing increased data usage across our mobile network, especially at big events. In fact, data on our mobile network has increased about 250,000 percent since 2007, and the majority of that traffic is video.”

EAST LANSING — No two people are believed to have identical fingerprints, but researchers from New York University and Michigan State University have found that partial similarities between prints are common enough that the fingerprint-based security systems used in mobile phones and other devices can be more vulnerable than previously thought.
The vulnerability lies in the fact that fingerprint-based authentication systems feature small sensors that do not capture a user’s full fingerprint. Instead, they scan and store partial fingerprints, and many phones allow users to enroll several different fingers in their authentication system. Identity is confirmed when a user’s fingerprint matches any of the saved partial prints. The researchers hypothesized that there could be enough similarities among different people’s partial prints that one could create a “MasterPrint.”
