AT&T invests $125M in wireless in South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — AT&T has invested more than $125 million in the first half of 2011 in its South Carolina telecommunications networks.

The company said Thursday that the money went to improve wireless networks, installing new cell sites and boosting capacity on existing towers in dozens of places across the state.

South Carolina AT&T President Pamela Lackey says the improved coverage is part of the company’s commitment to wireless because it has become such an important way for people to stay in touch.

AT&T says people can see the quality of its coverage in any area at http://www.wireless.att.com/coverageviewer by using a map, zip code, street address or intersection.
