April 5, 2022

Mobile Broadband Expansion in Chemung, Monroe, Livingston, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates Counties Enhances Mobile Internet Access and Connectivity for AT&T Customers and FirstNet Subscribers


What’s the news? AT&T* customers and FirstNet® subscribers in Chemung, Monroe, Livingston, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates Counties got a big boost in wireless connectivity. We’ve added new cell sites to enhance the regions mobile broadband coverage and help give residents, businesses and first responders faster, more reliable wireless service. Our investment will help customers get the most out of their mobile devices. AT&T has built approximately 35 new cell sites across the recross the region since 2020.


These new cell sites boost coverage and capacity in and around:


Chemung County, including large areas of Elmira. AT&T has built multiple new cell sites in Chemung County since 2020.


Monroe County, including parts of the City of Rochester throughout the residential neighborhoods east of the Genesee River and the Driving Park Avenue bridge, Palmyra Road (Route 31) between Macedon and Perinton, Route 250 (Moseley Road) and Route 50 through the Perinton/Fairport area. AT&T has built more than 10 new cell sites in Monroe County over the past two years.


Livingston County, including the Lakeville Road/Route 20A corridor (between Geneseo and 390 at Exit 8), Route 390 along the Sonyea Road Exit, parts of Mount Morris, and the hamlets of Sonyea and Groveland. AT&T has built more than five new cell sites in Livingston County since 2020.


Schuyler, Tompkins and Chemung counties, including Routes 13 and 224 through the hamlet of Alpine Junction, which intersects all three counties. We have built multiple new cell sites in Schuyler County since 2020.


Steuben County, including South Steuben County and the Route 390 corridor along the Livingstone/Steuben County border. AT&T has built multiple new cell sites in Steuben County since 2020.


Yates County and serves the Village of Dresden as well as the Route 14 corridor along Seneca Lake. It also serves Sampson State Park and the shores across the lake in Seneca County.


Why is this important? We know how important it is for our customers to stay connected. That’s why we’re also boosting network reliability and capacity as we expand our network. This helps New York residents get the best possible experience over the AT&T network wherever they live, work and play. And it’s giving first responders on FirstNet – America’s public safety network – access to always-on, 24-hours-a-day priority and preemption across voice and data.


These enhancements also bring Band 14 spectrum to the area. Band 14 is nationwide, high-quality spectrum set aside by the government specifically for FirstNet. We look at Band 14 as public safety’s VIP lane. In an emergency, this band – or lane – can be cleared and locked just for FirstNet subscribers. When not in use by FirstNet subscribers, AT&T customers can enjoy Band 14’s added coverage and capacity.


Committed to our Networks: From 2018 to 2020, we invested nearly $1.6 billion in our New York wireless and wired networks. These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and businesses.


What is FirstNet? FirstNet is the only nationwide, high-speed broadband communications platform dedicated to and purpose-built for America’s first responders and the extended public safety community. Shaped by the vision of Congress and the first responder community following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, FirstNet stands above commercial offerings. It is built with AT&T, in a public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) – an independent agency within the federal government. The FirstNet network is providing public safety with truly dedicated coverage and capacity when they need it. These advanced capabilities help fire, EMS, law enforcement save lives and protect their communities. Learn more at
