DOVER – Dover and Cumberland City will now have AT&T mobile internet service, according to a news release from AT&T. AT&T has invested $1.4 billion in both wireless and wireline networks since 2010 with the intent of boosting overall improvement in service.
“This is an investment in our future, said State Sen. Mark Green in prepared comments. “In an information-driven economy, the ability for our Cumberland City and Dover residents in Stewart County to have access to the latest communications technology is critical.”
AT&T bases its mobile Internet network on 3rd Generation Partnership Project technology including GSM and UMTS.
“This mobile Internet announcement is great news and will help keep our Cumberland City and Dover residents connected,” said Stewart County Mayor Rick Joiner.
“For many consumers, especially rural residents with access to only satellite and dial-up broadband service, mobile Internet provides high-speed Internet access that fits their needs and provides broadband service like that available in larger cities,” said Lanie Johnson, AT&T regional director. “For consumers living in suburban and urban areas with more high-speed broadband service options, mobile Internet affords new competitive high speed broadband choices.”
