AT&T’s Wireless Network Is 97 Percent Fixed From Sandy Damage

Work continues to bring wireless networks back to full capacity after the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. AT&T said today that its network has returned to 97 percent of its pre-storm capacity. That includes 90 percent of its cell sites in New York City. Operations in other states affected by the storm have returned to or are near normal levels. The company said it had placed 25 temporary cell sites in the region, including cells on trucks and on light-rail cars to fill in gaps in its network, and deployed 3,000 generators and 70 trucks to keep them topped up on fuel.
