Network Expansion in Wichita Will Help Give AT&T Customers Better Access to Mobile Internet
What’s the news? AT&T* has expanded its 5G network in Wichita, giving residents, businesses and visitors a big boost in their wireless connectivity. We’ve added a new cell tower along West 27th Street South to enhance the area’s coverage and capacity, and help customers unlock the power of America’s Most Reliable 5G Network.
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, including Wichita. This helps Kansas residents and businesses get the best possible experience over the AT&T network wherever they live, work and play.
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.
