AT&T announced Thursday that it activated four more 3G cell sites in South Florida, specifically in Deerfield Beach, Homestead and Key West. The 3G technology is AT&T's highest speed for wireless data transmission.
The Deerfield Beach cell site, located on 17th Street S.W., is servicing high speed wireless coverage for I-95 and Hillsboro Boulevard and the surrounding area.
In Homestead, two new 3G sites on S.W. 360th Street and S.E. 18th Avenue cover the Turkey Point area and the Florida Turnpike from S.W. 312th Drive south into Florida City and along the approach to the Homestead Miami Speedway. The Key West site on U.S. Highway 1 covers Big Coppitt Key and the Naval Air Station on Boca Chica Key.
AT&T began rolling out its 3G service in South Florida counties in 2006 and expanded to Key West, Martin and St. Lucie counties last fall. AT&T reports it will continue to beef up its 3G coverage along the Treasure Coast this summer to include the rest of St. Lucie and Indian River County.
