AT&T starts network upgrades in Springs

Filed under: Daily News,Technology | Tags:, ,

AT&T will begin network upgrades in the Colorado Springs area to enhance the wireless capacity and performance of its mobile broadband network.

The new network will add layers of frequency, also known as carriers, to manage capacity, according to AT&T. The mobile company faced criticism for lack of broadband capacity when it introduced the iPhone a few years ago.

The company said wireless service will continue to work during the upgrades, and voice and data service should improve once they are completed.

Some temporary disruptions may occur for some customers, according to AT &T. If customers are experiencing trouble, they should try turning their phones off and then on again. If that fails, customers are asked to visit their local AT&T store for additional assistance.
