Why there? An AT&T spokeswoman tells me that generally, “We determine where to place cell sites on a case-by-case basis depending on a variety of factors including where subscribers are located and where better coverage is needed.”
So, if you ever notice issues with poor cell phone coverage, REPORT IT! AT&T is listening. (Here are some other tactics AT&T suggests if you’re experiencing poor reception: “Troubleshoot poor call quality.”)
Also today, the company announced that it is adding new cell sites in Santa Clarita, Long Beach and Riverside.
The new sites are part of the company’s goal to add 200 new cell sites in California this year, plus upgrade 320 others to 3G.
