AT&T Boosts Network Speeds in Jonesboro

4G LTE Expansion Will Give Customers Better Access to Mobile Internet

JONESBORO, Ark., Feb. 21, 2019 — AT&T* has added a new cell site to its 4G LTE network in southeast Jonesboro to help give customers faster, more reliable wireless service.

The new cell site is located southeast of the Joe N. Martin Expressway and Stadium Boulevard in Jonesboro. Our investment will help customers get the most out of their mobile devices. With 4G LTE service, customers will experience better network connectivity while streaming videos, sharing on social media, or texting family and friends.

“This new cell tower is all about helping our customers have a better experience,” said Ronnie Dedman, president of AT&T Arkansas. “We’re continually working to provide better coverage and this investment is an example that.”

We know how important it is for our customers to stay connected. This new cell site helps Jonesboro residents get the best possible experience over the AT&T network wherever they live, work and play.

"I welcome AT&T’s investment in Jonesboro, which increases access to mobile technologies that are increasingly important to residents and businesses," said Jonesboro Mayor Harold Perrin. “Investments like this are crucial to the growth and viability of this community.”

By building out our 4G LTE network, we are laying the foundation for 5G, the next advance in network technologies. We’re boosting network speeds and capacity, as we continue to expand the availability and capacity of our network using the latest technology.

AT&T invested about $550 million in our Arkansas statewide wireless and wired networks during 2015-2017. These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and businesses, as well as public safety and first responders.
