AT&T continues to expand LTE services in Mexico, with a recent report indicating the carrier pushed coverage to another 1 million potential customers during the first quarter of this year.
According to a report from Telecompaper, AT&T said its LTE network in Mexico covered 45 million pops across 42 cities at the end of Q1, compared with 44 million pops covered across 41 cities at the end of 2015. As part of plans to invest $3 billion over the next three years in network improvements, AT&T had said it planned to cover at least 40 million pops at the end of 2015, 75 million pops at the end of 2016, and 100 million pops by the end of 2018.
At this year’s Mobile World Congress event, AT&T management said the carrier was working to update its network in Mexico to the same network standards the carrier has in the U.S. market.
