AT&T spends millions to improve its network

AT&T Mobility wants you to know its wisely investing your monthly cell phone dollars.
The wireless giant said it has poured more than $350 million into network enhancements between 2011 and 2013 to provide better fourth- and third-generation data service in Oregon
While declining to quantify a baseline figure, AT&T spokesman Andy Colley said customer data usage has soared 70 percent in the past 12 months.
In 2013 alone AT&T upgraded its network 446 times including new cell sites, increased wireless and wired network capacity, and new broadband network connections.

Ashland and Medford were among the 13 markets added to AT&T’s Long Term Evolution network last year.
