AT&T deploys hundreds of small cells and distributed antennas at multiple Disney locations2
The service enhancement expands both HSPA and LTE coverage. The hardware is meant to blend in where necessary, but the small cells allow coverage in areas where geography posed a challenge, or where office space suffers from structural obstacles.
This is not the first time that AT&T has used DAS technology, but it is the first time the carrier has installed them outdoors and indoors on this scale. The coverage boost is obviously a benefit to subscribers. According to AT&T, the boost in coverage has resulted in high marks for voice and data reliability. Also, customers are taking advantage of the extra coverage as AT&T is noting a better than 10-times increase in voice and data traffic.
