AT&T expands 4G network in Puerto Rico
AT&T de Puerto Rico announced Monday it has activated six new 4G mobile Internet cell sites in five towns to boost coverage for area residents and businesses and provide speeds up to four times faster than 3G.
The areas benefitting from the expanded 4G coverage and speeds include:
- Orocovis – Along PR Roads 143, 155 and Hayales
- Vega Baja – Along PR Road 160 in Velomas and Miraflores
- Aguadilla – Along PR Road 467 in Camaceyes
- Las Marias – Along PR Road 108 between Mayaguez and Las Marias
- Quebradillas – In Campamento Guajataca
The Puerto Rico 4G expansion is part of AT&T’s continuing network investment to support the growing demand for mobile devices, apps and faster mobile Internet speeds, company executives said.
“Our expansion of 4G coverage in Puerto Rico demonstrates our continued commitment in delivering the best mobile experience and the largest 4G network,” said Jose Juan Dávila, president of AT&T Mobility Puerto Rico & USVI.
AT&T invested more than $325 million in Puerto Rico from 2010 through 2012 and completed nearly 625 network upgrades last year to enhance speeds, reliability and performance for customers. In addition, AT&T launched 4G LTE in the cities of Guayama, San Germán and Yauco in 2012.
“We know our customers depend on us for fast, reliable mobile Internet connections at home, work and everywhere in between,” said Ray Flores, regional vice president AT&T Puerto Rico & USVI. “Our goal is to provide a superior mobile Internet experience for our customers, and the ongoing network investment we’re making in Puerto Rico will help us accomplish that goal.”
