Can you hear me now? While we all remember those commercials by Verizon, the new battle between the cell phone superpowers AT&T and Verizon continues. Now, in the 5G arms race, AT&T has invested $1.1 billion to add nine new 5G sites across New Jersey.

“We’ve just added nine new sites throughout the state to improve connectivity for our New Jersey neighbors. From 2019 to 2021, we invested more than $1.1 billion in our networks in New Jersey,” said Karen Twomey, a spokesperson for the company. “These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents, visitors and businesses in the Garden State.” Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to talk to one of our AT&T experts in an interview.”

According to the company, 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. We look at Band 14 as public safety’s VIP lane,” AT&T said in a statement today. “In an emergency, this band – or lane – can be cleared and locked just for FirstNet subscribers. When not in use by FirstNet subscribers, AT&T customers can enjoy Band 14’s added coverage and capacity.”
