DENVER - AT&T is driving investment and innovation across Colorado to deliver superior 4G service and the best possible mobile Internet experience, the company announced.

AT&T said it invested nearly $80 million in the first half of 2012 in its Colorado wireless and wired networks, including activation of new cell sites or towers to improve network coverage, deploying faster connections to enable 4G speeds, and adding spectrum capacity to support additional traffic.

The improvements also include network upgrades of new Wi-Fi hot spots and backbone network connections, the company said.

"We're working to build a 4G network that's smarter and better to provide our customers with a superior mobile Internet experience," said Bill Soards, AT&T-Colorado president.

"The ongoing investment we're making across Colorado is designed to increase 4G coverage, reliability and speed. We also continue to invest in technologies like Wi-Fi and DAS to help provide customers with the best connections when they want it -whatever they're doing."

DAS is Distributed Antenna Systems.

AT&T said its investment and innovation has resulted in the nation's largest 4G network, covering 275 million people with ultra-fast speeds and a more consistent user experience.

Over the last five years, AT&T said it has invested more than $115 billion nationwide into operations and into acquiring spectrum and other assets to enhance its wireless and wired networks.
