AT&T today announced that it has completed its work to bolster the performance of its network in New York City. According to AT&T, customers in Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens should be experiencing better service. AT&T took a number of steps to make this improvement. AT&T first upgraded the software at all its cell sites up to HSPA 7.2Mbps. AT&T has also turned on the 850MHz spectrum it owns in New York City, and has enabled this at all its cell sites, too. This added capacity to the network and should improve in-building coverage. Last, AT&T has turned on a giant Wi-Fi hotspot covering the Times Square area of New York to alleviate network congestion in that area. AT&T also provides the Wi-Fi service at many Starbucks locations. As a result of these improvement, AT&T says it has seen a 47% improvement in voice call quality.
