According to an announcement today by AT&T, it has added or upgraded cell sites in Brooklyn this summer, including sites in Borough Park and Sunset Park, and earlier this year in Greenpoint, Brooklyn Navy Yard, DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights, Red Hook, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, Flatbush, Bushwick, Williamsburg, Bed-Stuy, Canarsie, Brownsville, Cypress Hills and East New York, “as part of its 2011 initiative to deliver the nation’s most-advanced mobile broadband experience. AT&T has spent $200 million improving its wireline and wireless networks in New York State the first half of this year alone.”
AT&T was a sponsor during this year’s Dumbo Arts Festival and of course Apple launched their new iPhone 4S last week, so there’s anticipation on the customer’s part to see improved mobile network service in Brooklyn.
“Our goal is for our customers to have an extraordinary experience. As part of the Brooklyn community, we’re always looking for new opportunities to provide an enhanced customer experience, and our investment in the local wireless network is just one way we’re accomplishing that,” said Tom DeVito, vice president and general manager for AT&T in New York and New Jersey.
Have you seen an improvement in AT&T’s network in and around Dumbo?
