AT&T Invests More Than $60 Million Over 3-Year Period to Boost Local Networks in Wyoming


CHEYENNE, Wyo., Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- At AT&T1, we've invested more than $60 million in our Wyoming wireless and wired networks during 2015-2017. These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and businesses. They also improve critical services that support public safety and first responders.

In 2017, AT&T made 93 wireless network upgrades in Wyoming. We added new cell sites and network capacity.

"Innovation and sustained investment by the private sector is crucial to Wyoming's future," said Gov. Matt Mead. "We are committed to working with technology companies such as AT&T to build state-of-the-art infrastructure using innovative technology that will pave the way to super-fast 5G mobile services."

The AT&T LTE network now covers more than 400 million people in North America. Notable Wyoming network enhancements in 2017 included:

  • New permanent cell tower at Cheyenne Frontier Days designed as historic water tank;
  • Supported customers viewing the solar eclipse by deploying Cell on Wheels (COW) at Glendo Reservoir, doubling LTE capacity in Casper, and enhancing our cell sites in Jackson by adding capacity to handle increased demand on our network.

By building out our 4G LTE network, we're 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 of our network using the latest technology.

Since the formation of the FirstNet public-private partnership a little over a year ago, governors from all 50 states, 5 territories and D.C. recognized the value of FirstNet, joining in its mission to strengthen and modernize public safety's communications capabilities.

FirstNet is a new nationwide communications platform dedicated to America's public safety community. As we build, deploy and evolve FirstNet, we will build upon our current and planned investments in Wyoming to help ensure publc safety's network delivers the coverage and cutting-edge capabilities first responders expect – today and for decades to come.



For the 4th year in a row, AT&T earned the top spot in the telecommunications industry on FORTUNE's Most Admired Companies list in 2018. We also placed No. 49 among the 50 most admired companies across all industries.

We were ranked first or second in all 9 attributes used to compile the list, including innovation, people management, quality of management, long-term investment value, quality of products/services and global competitiveness.
