AT&T Expands 4G LTE Network in Babbitt and Tower

Good news for Babbitt and Tower…

AT&T* is improving service for customers in northeast Minnesota. We have expanded our super-fast 4G LTE wireless service at 2 sites, bringing faster speeds for customers and businesses:

  • A new 4G LTE site in Babbitt;
  • A new 4G LTE site in Tower near the Fortune Bay Resort and Casino.

“Customers are doing more with their wireless devices than ever before,” said Paul Weirtz, president of AT&T Minnesota. “Our goal is to give them an effortless network experience. These network investments in northeast Minnesota will help us do that.”

The AT&T 4G LTE wireless service is the latest high-speed mobile broadband technology, with mobile speeds 10x faster than 4G.

That means customers can do many of the same tasks on their tablet and smartphone that they do on their wired computer.

“This is good news for residents and businesses in Babbitt and Tower,” said State Senator Thomas Bakk. “If we want northeast Minnesota to compete in today’s global economy, it’s critical we have access to the latest mobile Internet technologies that are driving innovation and investment.”

“Fast and reliable mobile data is not only vital for economic development, but also for advancements in everything from education to health care to tourism,” said State Representative Rob Ecklund. “This investment will help Babbitt and Tower residents stay connected and businesses stay competitive in a mobile economy.”

From 2013 through 2015, AT&T invested more than $350 million in its networks in Minnesota, and these positions are part of AT&T’s continued investment in 2016.

We’re constantly investing in our network to give customers the high-quality services they need to stay connected. This helps people across Minnesota get the best possible experience over the AT&T network, whether at home, at work or on the go.
