Guam operator boosts infrastructure as demand for wireless internet increases

In response to increasing demand for wireless internet access, GTA TeleGuam has installed four new cellsites to boost wireless capacity in high-use areas across Guam.

The operator has activated new cellsites in Tumon, Dededo, Tiyan, and Micronesia Mall. The company also plans to add six more cellsites throughout the island by next April to keep up with rapidly growing 3G and GSM wireless demand.

Additional capacity through the four new cellsites will ensure faster data connections for sending and receiving messages and downloading information from the Internet.

“As smartphones become more popular, customers are discovering the benefits of wireless broadband connectivity,” said Andrew Gayle, executive vice president of product development and management for GTA TeleGuam.

“GTA TeleGuam will continue to make necessary network investments to ensure the most reliable communications services for our customers,” Gayle said.

The newest cellsites are in addition to the 3G wireless capacity that GTA TeleGuam added last year throughout the island. The operator launched its 3G mobile broadband service in 2009. Since its privatization in January 2005, the company has invested about $85 million in Guam’s communications infrastructure.
