    AT&T will be adding 1,500 to 3,000 cell sites per year

    According to Bill Smith, president of AT&T network operations, AT&T will likely be adding between 1,500 and 3,000 macro cell sites per year for the”foreseeable future” as part of an effort to improve network coverage and capacity. AT&T already plans on deploying spectrum bands for LTE service, which the FCC will be auctioning later this year.


    Smith also gave additional details as to how AT&T will be dealing with increased data traffic in the upcoming future:


    AT&T will deploy 40,000 small cells on its network by the end of 2015.
    AT&T has already deployed both indoor and outdoor small cells in 30 states.
    AT&T is using tower-mounted radio heads to prevent power loss to its antennas to boost signal strength.
    AT&T will embrace carrier aggregation, which bonds together disparate bands of spectrum to allow for faster speeds.
    AT&T is going forward with its User-Defined Network Cloud initiative.
    Just last year, AT&T agreed to sell or lease close to 10,000 towers to Crown Castle International for $4.85 billion. AT&T generates roughly $326 million in annual revenue from other companies who pay to lease space on their towers, according to JPMorgan research analyst Phil Cusick.

    I've seen 4 towers go up, or scheduled, within a 10 mile radius of me in the past 6 months. They are def on their A game.

    AT&T is flying with the Alltel conversion here... Once that's done they will have a lot more towers and LTE spectrum.
    Have you read the forum rules lately?

    Southern Illinois. Conversion for ex-Alltel customers is going on this summer. People from the tower companies are already doing the physical conversion and LTE installation work.

    There's a lot of AT&T activity going on in rural Nebraska to. Wish they would do something in SW IA, the commnet roaming there just don't cut it and it's only 25 min away from Omaha...

    Glad to see other areas are catching up to areas like mine (Atlanta), where coverage has been stellar for years.

    I think AT&T isn't going to stop, until perception catches up to reality, or vice versa. That depending on who you ask, that they OVERALL have the best network.

    I've been going 10 years strong, and am ready to do another 10 years.

    If they continue at the rate they are going, AT&T will go from tied with Verizon to the best nationwide. Obviously there will still be some areas that are Verizon-dominated.
