As our nation and communities continue to recover from the impacts of the pandemic, our teams are working hard to keep first responders and customers connected. We’re also marking AAPI Heritage Month with a post from one of our company leaders, and we are enrolling eligible customers in the FCC’s temporary Emergency Broadband Benefit Program.
Lycoming County’s first responders are getting another major boost in their wireless communications thanks to the FirstNet network expansion currently underway by AT&T. We’ve added a new, purpose-built cell site in Buttonwood that will improve coverage around Buttonwood and along Route 284, Route 15, and the surrounding neighborhoods. This is the latest purpose-built site to be turned on in Pennsylvania – and the second in Lycoming County.
Across Pennsylvania, we’ve also added new cell sites to enhance the area’s mobile broadband coverage. These help give AT&T customers and FirstNet subscribers faster, more reliable wireless service. To learn more about these network expansions, click below:

The history of Asians, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) is one that I’m proud to share with millions around our country and billions around the world. Our collective stories are rich and tie us to lineages and cultures that span millennia. It’s truly an honor to share this moment with you as we celebrate Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
We believe that broadband connectivity is essential for all Americans. People depend on technologies like the internet to stay connected to every part of their lives.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought national awareness to the lack of internet accessibility for millions of Americans – especially for low-income families. That’s why we are working to help households stay connected. AT&T is participating in the FCC’s Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program to help eligible households with connectivity costs during the pandemic.
In these difficult economic times, the EBB will help qualifying households reduce wireless service costs for activities like job searches, telehealth, remote work, and distance learning. EBB enrollment is now open, and the benefit can be applied to select plans for both new and existing AT&T and Cricket Wireless customers.2
1 Additional fees and taxes may apply.
2 Eligible wireless plans from AT&T PREPAID and Cricket Wireless, available in all 50 states and DC. Home internet services, including Access from AT&T and select AT&T Internet rate plans, are available within our 21-state wireline footprint.
