AT&T invested nearly $850 million in wireless and wired networks in Connecticut between 2011 and 2013, the company reported last week.
The communication giant said nearly 160 network upgrades were made to enhance speed, reliability, coverage and performance for residents and business customers. New cell sites, addition of wireless and wired network capacity and new broadband network connections were among the changes.
Among enhancements were the launch of a 4G LTE network in Torrington and Willimantic; expansion of existing networks in Hartford, New Haven, Litchfield, Waterbury and Meriden, and the installation of a distributed antenna system at Yale School of Medicine.
