AT&T: Wi-Fi will be in all of our small cell deployments

Jan 10, 2013

"Our objective for 2014 is that we won't do any small cell or in-building systems that don't include Wi-Fi," said John Donovan, senior executive vice president, AT&T Technology and Network Operations.

That means AT&T's Wi-Fi footprint stands to grow significantly as the operator engages in Project Velocity IP (or VIP), the multibillion program announced last fall under which AT&T will deploy more than 10,000 new macrocells, 40,000 small cells and 1,000 distributed antenna systems (DAS) throughout its service footprint.
