AT&T investment in South Florida networks in last 3 years: $875 million

AT&T has invested nearly $875 million in its wireless and wired networks in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties from 2012 through 2014, driving a wide range of upgrades to enhance reliability, coverage, speed and performance for residents and business customers, the company said Monday.

As part of its Project Velocity IP (VIP), an investment plan focused on network enhancement and expansion, AT&T in 2014 activated dozens of new cell sites and expanded the reach of its network, providing access to AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet, AT&T U-verse video and AT&T U-verse voice services to nearly 26,500 new customer locations, said Joe York, AT&T Florida president.

The investment is part of AT&T’s nearly $2.8 billion investment from 2012-2014 to enhance networks in Florida. Last year, AT&T activated 113 new cell sites statewide, including 37 new sites in South Florida. AT&T’s 4G LTE network covers more than 300 million Americans, the company said.
