AT&T announce 5G network improvement in Hamilton County

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – AT&T announced an improvement in mobile internet speeds in Hamilton County.

They have put up a new cell tower to expand their 5G network in the area.

They say the new tower will improve 5G connection in valleys and on ridges.

Company officials also say the new site brings Band 14 spectrum to the area.

State lawmaker Patsy Hazelwood applauds the progress.

“During my professional career, I saw firsthand how advances in communications technology, and especially in wireless technology, impacted virtually every aspect of everyday life,” said state Rep. Patsy Hazelwood (District 27).

“Today, as people increasingly rely on their wireless devices to connect to the Internet, conduct business and stay in touch with friends and families, the expanded coverage this new tower will bring is welcome. It shows the Legislature’s efforts to encourage ongoing enhancements to Tennessee’s communications infrastructure continue to pay dividends for all parts of the state.”
