AT&T Boosts Network Speeds for Kansas Counties

Network Expansion in Kansas Counties Will Help Give AT&T Customers Better Access to Mobile Internet

What’s the news? AT&T* has expanded its 5G network in Anderson, Butler, Morris, Pratt, Scott and Shawnee Counties, giving residents, businesses and visitors a big boost in their wireless connectivity. We’ve added new cell towers in the counties below to enhance the area’s coverage and capacity, and help customers unlock the power of America’s Most Reliable 5G Network.1

  • Anderson County – Along Southwest Missouri Road in Welda
  • Butler County – Along Southeast Highway 54 in Rosalia
  • Morris County – Along A Avenue in Alta Vista
  • Pratt County – Along Northwest 40th in Pratt
  • Scott County – Along West Finney-Scott Road in Scott City
  • Shawnee County – Along Southwest 21st in Topeka

Why is this important? We know how important it is for our customers to stay connected. And AT&T 5G brings fast, reliable and secure connectivity to more than 281 million people in over 22,000 cities and towns nationwide. This helps Kansas residents and businesses get the best possible experience over the AT&T network wherever they live, work and play.

These sites will also provide enhanced coverage to benefit public safety and first responders on FirstNet® – public safety’s dedicated communications platform. FirstNet, Built with AT&T is bringing public safety communications into the 21st century with new, innovative capabilities to help those users stay safe and save lives.

These enhancements 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.

Our commitment to Kansas communities: From 2019 to 2021, we invested nearly $575 million in our wireless and wireline networks in Kansas. These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and their businesses.
