DENVER - AT&T said it invested more than $475 million in Colorado from 2010 through 2012 to improve its wireless and wireline networks, with a focus on expanding its 4G LTE mobile Internet coverage.

AT&T made nearly 535 wireless network upgrades in six key categories in the state during 2012, including activating new cell sites, adding capacity, upgrading cell sites to provide 4G LTE mobile Internet speeds, deploying high-capacity Ethernet connections to cell sites and adding or upgrading Distributed Antenna Systems, which boost wireless coverage and capacity in buildings and at major venues like convention halls and sports arenas.

"We know our customers depend on us for fast, reliable mobile Internet connections at home, work and everywhere in between," said Jenifer Robertson, AT&T vice president general manager.

"Delivering for our Colorado customers is a top priority and our ongoing investment here is designed to deliver a superior mobile Internet experience, encompassing speed, overage and reliability."

AT&T launched 4G LTE in the Denver area in November 2012 and added Boulder in December.

"We continue to expand and improve our wireless network across Colorado as consumers demand more high-speed services," said Bill Soards, AT&T Colorado president.

"In our growing wireless world, mobile and broadband networks create economic opportunities for health care, manufacturing, education, transportation and public safety and virtually every other economic sector."
