AT&T* has expanded its 5G network in Tishomingo, giving residents, businesses and visitors a big boost in their wireless connectivity. A new cell tower along West Place Road will enhance the area’s coverage and capacity, and help customers unlock the power of America’s Most Reliable 5G Network.
“Private investment in Oklahoma’s communication networks is crucial to closing the digital divide and ensuring that no one is left behind,” said House Speaker Charles McCall. “As elected officials, we must prioritize broadband expansion to ensure that every individual has the tools they need to thrive in today’s interconnected world.”
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 Kyle Coulter, regional director, external affairs, AT&T Oklahoma. “AT&T 5G brings fast, reliable and secure connectivity to more than 290 million people in over 24,000 cities and towns nationwide, including Tishomingo. This helps residents and businesses get the best possible experience over the AT&T network wherever they live, work and play.”
From 2020 to 2022, AT&T invested nearly $925 million in its wireless and wireline networks in Oklahoma. These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and their businesses.
