AT&T No Longer Targeting 40,000 Small Cells This Year
AT&T recently dialed back language referring to its small cell deployments planned for 2015. The company said last year it would launch 40,000 small cells around the country to improve coverage and capacity by the end of 2015. However, its March 2014 acquisition of Leap Wireless led it to reconsider those plans. "The Leap deal gave us additional spectrum and towers that allowed us to pull back on our original target because we added more macro sites, providing us additional capacity to meet the rising traffic demands," said AT&T in a statement provided to Fierce Wireless. The company is still deploying small cells, but it will not say how many. Fierce Wireless suggests AT&T's goal for 2015 may be 20,000 small cells, or about half the original number.
