AT&T is prepared to take several steps in the near-term to improve the coverage and capacity of its network in some of the largest cities across the U.S. In most regions, AT&T uses its 1900MHz spectrum holdings for its 3G network. Some time in the next few months, AT&T plans to add coverage with its 850MHz spectrum, specifically in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco. By using both sets of spectrum, it will add lots of capacity, which means end-users should have a better experience. In addition to using the 850MHz spectrum for 3G, AT&T is also going to add 2,100 cell sites to areas in need of coverage, as well as improve the backhaul capabilities of its network.
