DTC Communications has recently been notified by AT&T that as of March 6, 2014, AT&T wireless customers will no longer be able to roam on DTC cell phone towers.
“AT&T has informed DTC Communications they will no longer use DTC towers for their wireless customers to roam,” said DTC Communications CEO Craig Gates. “It was a decision strictly made by AT&T. While we have no control over decisions made by AT&T, we do want to remind wireless customers of AT&T they can make the switch to DTC Wireless and continue to enjoy the same level of coverage previously offered by AT&T.”
While AT&T customers will no longer be able to roam on DTC cell towers, customers of DTC Wireless will still have use of the entire combined network coverage between both companies.
DTC plans on having its wireless system upgraded to 4G by mid-year, which will offer customers a dramatic increase in both speed and reliability.
“The process of upgrading DTC Wireless to 4G is well underway,” stated Gates. “With increased speeds, DTC Wireless can offer the highest quality of wireless service to its customers.”
Customers of AT&T, or any other wireless provider, who make the switch to DTC Wireless in 2014 will be among the first customers – along with the existing customer base – to enjoy the 4G upgrade.
“DTC is tremendously excited about the upgrade to 4G service,” added Gates. “The upgrade is another part of DTC’s commitment to offer our customers the absolute best in products, services and support.”
DTC Communications is a member owned telephone cooperative established in 1951. The cooperative supplies communication and entertainment products and services to residential and business customers primarily throughout Middle Tennessee.
