AT&T customers and FirstNet subscribers across Pennsylvania got a big boost in wireless connectivity. We’ve added new cells sites across Pennsylvania to enhance the 4G LTE mobile broadband coverage and help give residents and first responders faster, more reliable wireless service. Our investment will help customers get the most out of their mobile devices.
“We want our customers to have a great experience. With 4G LTE service, they’ll be able to experience better network connectivity while streaming videos, sharing on social media or texting family and friends.”David Kerr, president, AT&T Pennsylvania
The new sites include:
Berks County: One site will boost coverage for customers in Lyons, Dryville, New Jerusalem, and connecting roads. A second site will provide additional coverage to Lenhartsville, along I-78 in the area, and along Route 143 both north and south of I-78.
Centre County: A new cell site in Pennsylvania Furnace that will provide coverage along Route 45 and will also cover the Penn State Ag Progress Days fairgrounds, giving residents, visitors and first responders faster, more reliable wireless service. Our investment will help customers get the most out of their mobile devices.
Clinton County: This site will improve coverage along Route 880 and Rauchtown, as well as surrounding areas.
Fayette County: The three new sites provide additional coverage and capacity on the LTE network, including FirstNet spectrum, in Pennsville between Connellsville and Everson along US-119 and SR-982; on the Springfield Pike between Connellsville and Normalville along SR-711; and along SR-119 between Port Marion, PA and Smithfield, PA.
Huntingdon County: A new site in Saltillo adds additional coverage and capacity on the LTE network, including FirstNet spectrum, to the town of Saltillo and along SR-994, SR-665 and SR-829.

“We want our customers to have a great experience. With 4G LTE service, they’ll be able to experience better network connectivity while streaming videos, sharing on social media or texting family and friends,” said David Kerr, president, AT&T Pennsylvania. “We’re working to provide better mobile broadband coverage for communities and first responders across Pennsylvania, and we’re investing in our wireless network to accomplish that.”
We know how important it is for our customers to stay connected. That’s why we’re also boosting network reliability and capacity as we expand our network. This helps Pennsylvanians get the best possible experience over the AT&T network wherever they live, work and play.
These upgrades will also benefit public safety and first responders on FirstNet – public safety’s dedicated communications platform. FirstNet is bringing public safety communications into the 21st century with new, innovative capabilities to help those users stay safe and save lives.
These enhancements also bring Band 14 spectrum to the area. Band 14 is nationwide, high-quality spectrum set aside by the government specifically for FirstNet. It provides public safety with a dedicated lane of connectivity when needed. When not in use by FirstNet subscribers, AT&T customers can enjoy Band 14’s added coverage and capacity.
FirstNet is built with AT&T in a public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority. It’s designed to help first responders in Pennsylvania and across the country connect to the critical information they need – when they need it – so they can keep themselves and the communities they serve safer.
We’re committed to investing in Pennsylvania.
From 2016 to 2018, we invested more than $775 million in our wireless and wired networks. These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and their businesses.
