T-Mobile awarded rural wireless service grant
Published: October 4,2012
ATTALA COUNTY and WINSTON COUNTY — T-Mobile has won a more than $1.8 million federal grant to expand wireless service in rural Mississippi.
The Federal Communications Commission says T-Mobile will work to fill gaps in 3G and 4G coverage on over 155 road miles in Attala County and nearly 100 road miles in Winston County.
The company faces a three-year deadline to establish at least 3G service in the region, where broad areas now lack any cell phone service.
The FCC says the grant money was awarded competitively through an auction.
