Posted: Updated:

As part of its continuing network investment to support growing demand for advanced mobile devices and applications, AT&T announced Tuesday the activation of a new mobile Internet cell site in Evansville by Burdette Park that will enhance coverage for area residents and businesses.

With mobile Internet speeds, AT&T customers can surf the Web, download files faster, and enjoy the very latest interactive mobile applications.

"As we build a business climate that will make southwest Indiana an even more attractive place for companies to locate and grow, I also appreciate this significant technology investment in our city and our region that expands connectivity of our citizens at work, home and in leisure settings as well," said State Senator Jim Tomes.

The new cell site is one part of AT&T's ongoing efforts to drive investment and innovation to deliver the nation's best, most advanced mobile Internet experience for customers.

AT&T has the nation's largest 4G network, which provides accelerated mobile data speeds and simultaneous voice and data capabilities.

AT&T has invested $365 million in its wireless and wired networks in Indiana through the first half of 2012.

From 2009 through 2011, AT&T invested more than $1 billion in its Indiana wireless and wireline networks.

"Our goal is for our customers to have an extraordinary experience.

As a significant capital investor and employer in Evansville for many years, we're always looking for new opportunities to provide enhanced coverage for businesses and consumers.

Expanding access to new technology and advanced networks is just one way we're accomplishing that," said AT&T Indiana President George S. Fleetwood.

AT&T's innovation and investment has resulted in the nation's largest 4G network, covering 285 million people with ultra-fast speeds and a more consistent user experience.
