AT&T adds cell sites to serve LAX travelers

November 23, 2011 |  3:03 pm

Just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday rush, AT&T has activated three cell sites at Los Angeles International Airport to serve air travelers.

AT&T already had sites to serve cellphone users in the area but the three new sites, resembling antennae installed on the roofs of parking garages, are the first to be installed on airport property, according to airport officials.

The cell sites, added over the past month, are designed to improve capacity for cellphone users at the airport, especially the 2 million passengers expected to fly out of LAX during the holiday weekend.

The sites are part of a $20-billion nationwide effort by AT&T to upgrade and expand its network infrastructure.
