Two new mobile sites were activated on Thursday.
AT&T says it has improved its 3-G signal in the Thurmont area. On Thursday, November 15th, the company says it activated two mobile internet sites along Foxville Road (Rt. 77) near Catoctin Mountain Park. It says these sites will improve coverage for residents, businesses and visitors to Thurmont.
AT&T says customers can now surf the web and download files much quicker. "Investments in mobile internet infrastructure will drive economic growth," says J. Michael Schweder, president of AT&T Mid-Atlantic, in a statement. "Our ongoing investments in Maryland will give businesses, residents and visitors to Thurmont access to a more advanced mobile experience.
While the G-8 summit was taking place earlier this year, the company brought in cell sites on wheels know as COWS to help boost coverage during this large event. AT&T says these two new sites are permanent and are expected to boost coverage all year round.
