AT&T Improves Cell Coverage in Downtown Athens, Near UGA Campus

According to GeorgiaDogs.com, AT&T has announced the activation of a new 3G cell tower located in downtown Athens, Georgia. The new cell site will provide enhanced cell phone coverage on the east side of downtown Athens, and around the Oconee River and on The University of Georgia’s north campus. Many students and residents in Athens have been frustrated with AT&T’s coverage while driving from Broad Street and proceeding down the the hill toward the Oconee River as cell signals will frequently get dropped.
