AT&T announced Friday that it has made 25 total network improvements in Encinitas since 2011.
According to the company’s newly launched microsite, those upgrades include 11 capacity upgrades and 14 network connection upgrades. The goal is to reduce the amount of dropped calls and improve service during busy times.
In celebration of those changes, AT&T has partnered with Surf Diva, a locally based surf school that relies on wireless technology between instructors and students during lessons. AT&T plans to give Surf Diva 25 portable, waterproof devices and accessories for that purpose.
From 2009 through 2011, AT&T invested nearly $700 million in its wireless and wireline networks in the greater San Diego area and saw a 25 percent reduction in dropped calls, according to a news release from the company.
