AT&T to Add or Upgrade 520 Cell Sites in California in '09

AT&T plans to add more than 200 new cell sites throughout California in 2009 while upgrading nearly 320 more cell sites to 3G. The announcement builds on AT&T's 2008 wireless investment in which it added 157 new cell sites in California and upgraded 1,031 existing sites to 3G. From 2006 to 2008, AT&T's total capital investment in its California network was nearly $7.9 billion.

"Our number one priority in 2009 is to continue to enhance the wireless network so our customers have a top notch experience every time they make a call, check an e-mail or surf the Internet on their AT&T device," said Fred Devereux, regional president, AT&T West.
