The Latest on Expanding Connectivity in Cincinnati

AT&T Investments Connect Communities

In Cincinnati, we invested nearly $130 million in our wireless and wireline networks from 2019-2021.

We know how important it is for our customers to stay connected. That’s why we’re focused on boosting network reliability and capacity as we expand our network nationwide. This helps residents get the best possible experience over the AT&T network where they live, work and play, as well as supporting first responders on FirstNet®.

“Connectivity is vital to help people in Cincinnati be part of the digital economy,” said Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval. “We appreciate this AT&T investment in modern, high-speed infrastructure that makes our city even more attractive to new residents and benefits diverse families of all income levels across our community.”

Committed to expanding connectivity, our investment focuses on all facets of the network —from 5G to FirstNet.

  • Unlocking the Power of 5G:AT&T is America’s Most Reliable 5G Network1. AT&T currently offers various flavors of 5G*, which helps enable the network to reach its full potential. Here’s how they work:
    • AT&T 5G using low-band spectrum offers fast speeds and reaches more than 277 million people nationwide.
    • AT&T 5G+ recently introduced mid-band spectrum. This spectrum sits between our other 2 bands. The mid-band spectrum provides a great combination of ultra-fast speeds and wide geographic coverage.
    • AT&T 5G+ using high-band (millimeter wave) spectrum delivers super-fast speeds and unprecedented performances in high traffic areas including parts of more than 45 cities and 40 stadiums and venues nationwide.
  • Supporting First Responders by Expanding the Nation’s Public Safety Network: FirstNet, Built with AT&T, is the only nationwide, high-speed broadband network built with and for America’s first responders. Today, we cover nearly all of Ohio with FirstNet – helping to connect public safety agencies and organizations in more than 280 communities across the state. It provides America’s first responders and the extended public safety community with truly dedicated coverage and capacity when they need it. FirstNet includes unique benefits like always-on priority and preemption, high-quality Band 14 spectrum and a one-of-a-kind 5G experience to keep public safety mission ready.
