Wireless carrier AT&T announced it has upgraded all its cell sites in the U.S. Virgin Islands with additional bandwidth in the 700 MHz spectrum. The investment was not revealed.

That means customers should experience better upload and download times when using data on their mobile devices, the company confirmed

This latest upgrade is part of AT&T’s continued focus on delivering an “exceptional network experience for USVI customers.”

“We want our customers to have a great network experience wherever they live, work or play,” said Ray Flores, AT&T regional vice president of AT&T Puerto Rico and USVI. “That’s why we continue to invest in our local networks.”

Earlier this year, AT&T upgraded several cell sites on St. Thomas so the sites can handle more network traffic, giving customers improved reliability and overall network performance.

The areas on St. Thomas benefiting from those upgrades are Benner Hill, Red Hook, Heaven Sight, Pearson Gardens, and Crown Mountain.
