AT&T spent $60 million to upgrade networks: Will sell streamed DIRECTV
AT&T invested nearly $60 million wired and wireless networks in Delaware between 2013 and 2015, and the company said it will offer customers the ability to stream DIRECTV later this year.
The $60 million was spent upgrading reliability, coverage, speed and performance for residential and business customers, and enhance critical services to support public safety and first responders, according to a company statement.
“We’re committed to providing our customers fast, reliable, highly secure connectivity. We want them to be able to access the Internet at any moment, from any device and almost anywhere,” said Denis Dunn, president of AT&T Delaware. “Our continued investment in the First State brings a host of new, innovative opportunities for residents and businesses.”
The company said it will offer customers the ability to stream DIRECTV over wired and wireless internet connections from any provider and to any device this year. The services will not require annual contracts, satellite dishes or set-top boxes, the company said in a statement.
