Posted 7/18/12

PROVIDENCE – AT&T has expanded its mobile internet wireless capacity and coverage in southern Rhode Island with the completion of a new initiative.

The mobile carrier expects the additional spectrum to improve the connectivity and performance of mobile internet data and voice, according to a release.

The network enhancement adds new carriers to eight cell sites throughout Narragansett, South Kingstown, Newport, Middletown and Jamestown.

“Whether they’re strolling along Bellevue Avenue in Newport or lounging on a beach in South County, our goal is for our customers to have an extraordinary experience where they live, work and vacation,” Steve Krom, AT&T vice president and general manager for New England said in prepared remarks.

“As part of the Rhode Island community, we’re always looking for new opportunities to provide an enhanced customer experience and our investment in the local wireless network is one way we’re accomplishing that,” added Krom.

According to a release, the company invested more than $40 million in its Rhode Island wireless and wireline networks from 2009 to 2011.
