ATMC Wireless Completes Tower UpgradeShallotte, NC -- ATMC Wireless has announced the upgrade of its Bald Head Island wireless transmission site to 4G with HSPA+ (High Speed Packet Access) technology, completing its tower upgrade project and making the ATMC Wireless network now 100% 2G/3G/4G compatible in Brunswick County.
"The greatest benefit of this technology is that AT&T users will have not only excellent voice capabilities, but also vastly increased wireless data speeds," said Roger Cox, Executive Vice President – ATMC Wireless Operations. "This will allow users to utilize more of the Internet from their wireless devices." Other benefits of this technology include: better voice quality and clarity; faster Internet surfing; the ability to download files and access emails faster; quicker access and viewing of high quality video clips; and the ability to multi-task while on a call. These benefits will be experienced by users of 3G and 4G iPhones, Tablet computers, Blackberrys, Mobile Hotspots, and other 3G and 4G phones and devices.
ATMC Wireless is an authorized retailer of wireless services from AT&T and is part of the nationwide AT&T wireless network. ATMC Wireless coverage blankets Brunswick County with 52 wireless tower sites for the best wireless coverage in the region. The upgrade to 4G with HSPA+ technology provides wireless data speeds up to 4 times faster than 3G on wireless phones and data devices which are 3G and 4G capable. ATMC Wireless has twice as many wireless tower sites as other wireless providers in the county, providing outstanding coverage in many rural areas other wireless companies have avoided.
ATMC Wireless is a subsidiary of Atlantic Telephone Membership Corporation. It was selected as the Best Wireless provider in the 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Best of Brunswick Awards, and was voted to be the area’s best wireless provider in a 2011 WWAY-TV3 poll.
