AT&T upgrades coverage in Beaufort County

February 14, 2014 


AT&T recently announced it has upgraded two mobile Internet cell sites on Hilton Head Island and in Beaufort to expand its 4G LTE coverage.

AT&T launched its 4G LTE network in the Hilton Head area in March 2013. The new cell sites are meant to help "drive investment and innovation to deliver" better mobile and Internet service, according to an AT&T news release.

The company says its technology promises data speeds 10 times faster than 3G networks.

"AT&T's investment in Hilton Head and Beaufort will provide increased access to mobile technologies, which will help improve our business climate, both for residents and visitors to the area," state Sen. Tom Davis, R-Beaufort, said in the release.
