AT&T deploying 5G in areas around Thief River Falls, Marshall and North Shore MN

AT&T has been busy! They have announced 5G deployment in three areas in Minnesota. I’m going to merge that announcement into one:

  1. What’s the news in Thief River Falls? AT&T’s* 5G network – the most reliable 5G network – is now live for consumers and businesses in the Thief River Falls area.
    With this deployment, consumers and businesses in Thief River Falls, Newfolden, Hallock and Roseau with a 5G-capable device and qualifying plan will now have access to AT&T’s 5G service delivered using low-band spectrum.
  2. What’s the news in North Shore and North Country areas? AT&T’s* 5G network – the most reliable 5G network – is now live for consumers and businesses in the North Shore and North Country areas.
    With this deployment, consumers and businesses in Two Harbors, Silver Creek, Silver Bay, Hovland and Ely with a 5G-capable device and qualifying plan will now have access to AT&T’s 5G service delivered using low-band spectrum.
  3. What’s the news in Marshall and Madison? AT&T’s* 5G network – the most reliable 5G network – is now live for consumers and businesses in the Marshall and Madison areas.
    With this deployment, consumers and businesses in Marshall, Madison and Tracy with a 5G-capable device and qualifying plan will now have access to AT&T’s 5G service delivered using low-band spectrum.

Why is this important? We know how important it is for our customers to stay connected. AT&T 5G offers nationwide connectivity on its low-band sub-6 spectrum, which provides broadband coverage that will ultimately offer a better wireless experience with greater capacity and faster response times for businesses and consumers. 2Committed to our Networks: From 2018-2020, AT&T invested more than $300 million in our wireless network in Minnesota. In 2020, we made nearly 2,000 network enhancements across the state, including more than 25 new cell sites, additional network capacity, network upgrades and small cells.

These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and their businesses.

What people are saying:

“At a time when technology is proving to be even more essential for communications, AT&T customers can rest assured that our company is continuing to invest in our network and new technologies to make connection easier. We consistently work to provide better coverage for Minnesota’s communities. And we’re investing in our wireless network in Thief River Falls, northwestern Minnesota and across the state to accomplish that,” said Paul Weirtz, state president, AT&T Minnesota.
