AT&T* has expanded its 5G network in Christian County, giving residents, businesses and visitors a big boost in their wireless connectivity. A new cell tower will enhance the area’s coverage and capacity, and help customers unlock the power of America’s Most Reliable 5G Network1.
This new site will enhance AT&T’s coverage and capacity in areas southwest of Springfield.
“Advanced communications technologies are vital in today’s connected society and economy,” said Lynn Morris, Christian County Presiding Commissioner. “Announcements like this are important because they highlight the commitment of private industry to continue investing here, as well as contributing to the quality of life which helps is to keep Christian County growing.”
The new site will also bring Band 14 spectrum to the area. Band 14 is nationwide, high-quality spectrum set aside by the government specifically for FirstNet. We look at Band 14 as public safety’s VIP lane. In an emergency, this band – or lane – can be cleared and locked just for FirstNet subscribers. When not in use by FirstNet subscribers, AT&T customers can enjoy Band 14’s added coverage and capacity.
“We know how important it is for our customers to stay connected,” said Tracy King, Regional Director of External Affairs for AT&T Missouri. “AT&T 5G brings fast, reliable and secure connectivity to more than 290 million people in over 24,000 cities and towns nationwide, including Christian County. This helps residents and businesses get the best possible experience over the AT&T network wherever they live, work and play.
From 2019 to 2021, AT&T invested more than $2 billion in its wireless and wireline networks in Missouri. These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and their businesses.
