Feel like your AT&T cellphone has been getting a better signal in Wellington?

“We want our customers to have a great experience,” AT&T Florida president Joe York said in a news release. “They’ll be able to download, upload, stream and play games faster than ever before on our 4G LTE network — which is the nation’s best data network.” 

Last summer, AT&T upgraded more than 130 cell sites throughout South Florida, including several in Palm Beach County, a move the company said helped with speed and overall performance.
