BLAIRSVILLE - As part of its continuing network investment to support growing demand for mobile devices and services, AT&T Tuesday announced the activation of a new cell site northwest of Blairsville near Nottely Lake that is expected to enhance network coverage for area residents and businesses.

"Delivering dependable wireless coverage for consumers and businesses that need to stay connected is our ultimate objective," said Paul Chambers, Regional Director of External Affairs for AT&T.

It is also part of an ongoing investment to build the networks that will fuel economic growth and create jobs, and enable AT&T customers to quickly access the content, applications and services that matter most to them.
