AT&T Expands Wireless Coverage in Hawaii

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- AT&T wireless customers will soon get more cell phone service in Hawaii.

AT&T Inc., plans to invest more than $25 million in network upgrades in the Hawaiian Islands by the end of 2008.

That includes expanding wireless coverage, adding new cell sites and increasing its third-generation network in Hawaii.

"We're committed to providing the best service in the Aloha State," said Ed Maruyama, director of Sales for AT&T's wireless operations in Hawaii.  "The investments by AT&T will have a positive impact at both the state and community levels, in addition to keeping our customers connected."

This year's investment is expected to bring AT&T's wireless network investment in Hawaii to $72 million since 2006.
