AT&T Invests Nearly $25 Million Over Three-Year Period to Connect Customers in Statesville, Mooresville

Last Updated 12/16/2021in News


AT&T* is proud to connect customers across the country by continuing to grow the nation’s best network 1. From 2018-2020, we expanded coverage and improved connectivity in more communities by investing nearly $25 million in our wireless and wireline networks in the Statesville-Mooresville region.

AT&T’s commitment to communities across the country continues and spans all layers of our network—from fiber to 5G to FirstNet®. These investments are essential to connecting our customers with their family, friends and colleagues by increasing the network’s speed, reliability, coverage and overall performance.

We recently announced that AT&T will invest $2 billion over the next 3 years to help address the digital divide nationwide. AT&T further improved critical communications for local first responders and improved public safety with FirstNet® – America’s public safety network.

“Investment in advanced technology drives innovation and entrepreneurship and helps assure that individuals and businesses in small towns and communities have an equal opportunity to compete and succeed in a global economy,” said State Senator Vickie Sawyer, District 34. “This is why I am continually working for pro-investment public policies.”

“AT&T’s investment in the Statesville-Mooresville area confirms our commitment to expanding coverage and helping to boost the local economy,” said AT&T State President Trey Rabon. “We hope to keep residents connected to their loved ones and their work, while helping to ensure the efficiency of their local public safety personnel.”

More details about our wireless coverage in Statesville-Mooresville, and anywhere in the U.S., can be found on the AT&T Coverage Viewer. For updates on the AT&T wireless network, please visit the AT&T network news page.

FirstNet: Dedicated to America’s First Responders

We are committed to improving public safety infrastructure. As a part of that commitment, we have invested and built FirstNet in public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) – an independent agency within the federal government. FirstNet is the only nationwide, high-speed broadband communications platform dedicated to and purpose-built for America’s first responders and the extended public safety community.

- Expanding to serve: FirstNet focuses on where first responders need connectivity. We’ve moved quickly to deliver more coverage, boost capacity and drive new capabilities for first responders. Using all AT&T LTE commercial spectrum as well as high-quality Band 14 spectrum, FirstNet covers 2.71 million square miles nationwide. And we’re actively extending the reach of FirstNet in North Carolina to give agencies large and small the reliable, unthrottled connectivity and modern communications tools they require.

- First responder-centric 5G: FirstNet subscribers in parts of 38 cities and more than 20 venues now have access to AT&T 5G+. Our approach to 5G for public safety is unlike anything else. We’ve upgraded the dedicated FirstNet network core to enable 5G connectivity that is being built to intuitively optimize the experience for America’s first responders. First responders maintain voice communications with always-on priority and preemption on LTE, while the FirstNet network determines the best route for data traffic with compatible devices, whether that’s 5G+ or LTE spectrum.

The FirstNet network is providing Statesville-Mooresville public safety with truly dedicated coverage and capacity when they need. These advanced capabilities enable FirstNet to help fire, EMS, and law enforcement personnel save lives and protect their communities.
