AT&T Improves Cell Sites in Murrieta

Several AT&T cell sites have been upgraded in Murrieta, including one near Mulligan Family Fun Center, according to a news release.

Murrieta residents with AT&T cellphone service should experience faster speeds and increased reliability due to recent major network improvements in the city, AT&T announced.

Several cell sites in the city have been upgraded, including one near Mulligan Family Fun Center, according to a news release.

AT&T said its efforts are paying off in strong network performance. The Los Angeles region, which includes Murrieta, experienced 30 percent fewer dropped calls in the second quarter of 2012 than were recorded in the same period last year, according to the news release.

The "state-of-the-art" improvements made in Murrieta—which are part of a two-year, $1.7 billion investment throughout the greater Los Angeles area —are expected to more ability to handle a growing volume of calls, video, Internet and other data, the wireless provider said.

“Our goal is for our customers to have a great experience and as part of the Murrieta community our investment in the local wireless network is just one way we’re accomplishing that,” said Ken McNeely, president of AT&T California.  “The ongoing investment we’re making is designed to increase coverage and reliability, and to provide advanced services to our customers.”

AT&T has seen an 8,000-percent increase in data traffic in the last four years, which has been its call to action to keep pace and stay ahead of the growing demand for data, the company said.

"It’s like adding lanes to the highway so it can handle more traffic."

Murrieta Hot Springs' signals are all networked together and managed by the cities TMC (Traffic Management Center). During peak drive time hours delays can be expected when north/south traffic approaches an intersection to cross. During non-peak hours (and I have personally experienced this) from Winchester to the I-15, I've been able to make the drive without hitting any red lights. Our city is totally on top of signal synchronization and is very proactive in keeping them in proper working order. In fact, certain intersections were outfitted with right turn arrows to allow drivers the ability to make a legal right turn without stopping when traffic is turning left. If you have a complaint about the traffic signals, I suggest you visit one of our Traffic Commission meetings and voice your concerns.

Beautiful, beautiful towers... Dull gray set against the bright blue sky. <sigh> Breathtaking. (BTW: I have Verizon and it works like a charm. I can easily be tracked anywhere in the valley, including inside stores and restaurants... and even banks.) :)

I haven' t found a provider that reaches my Greer Ranch neighborhood. Ended up with Verizon and a booster box that plugs into the internet. Most of the providers sell them.

I wish that Sprint had better service to Vegas. It would be a great upgrade.
