AT&T recently announced an expansion of its mobile broadband wireless capacity to Forsyth County customers.

The communications company has added new layers of frequency, known as "carriers," to 12 cellular sites in and around Cumming.

According to a news release from AT&T, the enhancement will allow greater broadband capacity and voice performance.

Paul Chambers, regional director of AT&T Georgia, said in a statement that "supporting mobile broadband growth is our No. 1 investment priority."

"By adding coverage in Forsyth County, our customers can stay connected," he said. "It’s all about being where our customers want us."

He went on to say AT&T’s goal is to provide an "extraordinary experience" for its customers.

Keith Holmes, vice president and general manager of AT&T Georgia, added that the company is "always looking for new opportunities to provide an enhanced customer experience."

The company also recently announced an agreement to acquire T-Mobile USA.

"If approved, this deal means that we’ll be able to expand the next generation of mobile broadband – 4G LTE – from our current plan of 80 percent of the U.S. population to more than 97 percent," Holmes said.
