Verizon may not be the only wireless carrier with significant coverage anymore. AT&T is not wasting anytime putting those Verizon Wireless commercials to rest by adding significant coverage to the greater Philadelphia area.

In 2011 AT&T made 1,400+ network upgrades including southern New Jersey.  With enhanced backhaul connection to 740 cell towers and activating 20 new cell sites to improve network coverage and 20 additional sites to provide faster mobile speeds.

This is only the beginning of the wireless giants plans. They plan to upgrade or build thousands of cell sites nationwide for an increase in network speed, coverage and reliability for mobile and broadband services.  The additional radio carries should be good news to users that are worried about rising mobile data traffic because this will allow services to carry larger volumes of mobile traffic for faster more efficient service.
