BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — AT&T* has expanded 4G LTE coverage in south Palm Beach County with the activation of another new mobile Internet cell site in Boca Raton. The new site, located on Powerline Road, is boosting 4G LTE coverage and capacity in the residential area between S.W. 18th Street and Camino Real and Powerline Road and S. Military Trail.
This is the second cell site AT&T has activated in Boca Raton and the ninth in Palm Beach County since January. All told, AT&T has turned up 35 new sites in South Florida year-to-date.
The new cell sites are a part of AT&T’s continuing network investment and ongoing 4G LTE rollout in South Florida. Launched in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach in July 2012, AT&T 4G LTE is the latest generation of wireless network technology and provides several benefits for local residents, including faster mobile Internet speeds — up to 10 times faster than 3G, improved performance, reliability and innovative new 4G LTE-compatible devices.**
The South Florida network upgrades are part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan announced in Fall 2012 to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks. Through this investment, AT&T is supporting its customers’ growing desire for high-speed Internet access and new mobile, app and cloud-based services. As part of Project VIP, AT&T plans to add macro cell sites nationwide year-end 2015, as well as deploy small cells and add Distributed Antenna Systems to increase the density of its wireless network.
