AT&T is an industry leader in delivering the benefits of mobile broadband networks, devices and applications. With the nation’s fastest mobile broadband network, AT&T provides accelerated mobile data speeds and simultaneous voice and data capabilities for an amazing wireless voice and data experience.
“Demand for wireless bandwidth is growing rapidly, whether it’s for sharing video and photos with friends, watching a movie, checking the latest scores, or listening to music on a phone, netbook or other on-the-go devices,” said Nancy Garvey, AT&T’s vice president and general manager for the Greater Midwest Region. “With this expansion, our customers can enjoy the nation’s best, most advanced mobile broadband experience with emerging devices and tens of thousands of mobile applications.”
This network upgrade results from the investment AT&T makes year over year in communities all across the country. In just the first six months of this year, AT&T invested nearly $225 million in its wireless and wireline networks to continue improving customer service in Missouri. The company invested nearly $75 million in its Missouri wireless network in the first half of 2010.
“As policymakers, we try to make decisions that encourage businesses to invest in Missouri. Investments like this will help strengthen Neosho’s economy, attract new business and provide the latest technology to our residents,” said State Representative Bill Reiboldt.
