AT&T Invested $950 Million in Virginia’s Wireless & Wired Network

AT&T invested nearly $950 million in Virginia’s wireless and wired network infra- structure from 2012 through 2014, including upgrades to cell sites throughout Fairfax and Fairfax County. Last year alone, the company made 350 network upgrades and built 63 new cell sites throughout the Commonwealth. Among the improvements in the Northern Virginia area, AT&T upgraded 4G LTE cell sites in Fairfax, including one at the intersection of Route 50 and Route 29, and in Falls Church, near the intersection of Seminary Road and South George Mason Drive, to enhance coverage throughout the NoVA area. In addition, Herndon, Prince William, and Manassas all saw cell site improvements in 2014.

AT&T also activated new Wi-Fi hot spots as a part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP, which allow customers to stay connected at popular restaurants, hotels and bookstores without consuming their personal data allotment. For more information, visit
