AT&T upgrades Charlottesville area wireless network

AT&T customers rejoice! Just in time for the holidays, the company announced today that it will upgrade 15 sites that will extend the wireless network coverage—specifically, on Route 53 to Lake Monticello; on Routes 29 and 33 to Stanardsville; and on Route 250 and I-64 to Ivy.

"Our goal is pretty simple: We want you to have an extraordinary experience when you make a call, check e-mail, download a song or video, or surf the Internet on your AT&T device," said Erika K. Thompson-Kemp, vice president and general manager for AT&T in Virginia and West Virginia, in a press release.

The upgrades are part of the $75 million investment in Virginia that the company announced in early September.
