AT&T Brings Faster Network to Dell Rapids Customers

4G LTE Expansion Will Give Customers Better Access to Mobile Internet

AT&T Logo VerticalDELL RAPIDS, S.D. Apr. 2, 2018 — AT&T* added a new cell site to its 4G LTE network in Dell Rapids. The upgrade will give customers faster, more reliable wireless service.

With 4G LTE, customers will have a better network connection while streaming videos, sharing on social media or texting family and friends.

“Customers are doing more with their wireless devices than ever before, and our goal is to give them an effortless network experience,” said Cheryl Riley, president of AT&T Northern Plains States. “Thanks to this investment, Dell Rapids residents and businesses can now enjoy faster mobile speeds than ever before on our 4G LTE network.  We are proud of our continued investment across South Dakota.”

We’re also boosting network reliability and capacity as we expand our network. These upgrades will improve critical services that support public safety and first responders.

In 2017, South Dakota accepted the FirstNet and AT&T plan to deliver a wireless broadband network to the state’s public safety community. AT&T, in a public-private partnership with FirstNet, will build, operate and maintain a highly secure wireless broadband communications network for South Dakota’s public safety community for the next 25 years at no cost to the state. The FirstNet experience will deliver innovation and create an entire system of modernized devices, apps and tools for first responders.

From 2014-2016, we invested more than $90 million in our South Dakota wireless and wired networks. These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for South Dakotans and their businesses.

We continued our investment in South Dakota in 2017 and plan to keep upgrading our network throughout 2018.
