    Cingular Investing More than $12 Million in Treasure Valley Network
    New Cell Sites Enhance Coverage in Boise, Nampa and Meridian


    BOISE, Idaho, June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Cingular Wireless, the nation's largest wireless carrier, is investing more than $12 million to extend network coverage and enhance quality for customers in the Treasure Valley. New cell sites began coming on air in November 2005. By the end of 2006 the company expects to add a total of 19 new cell sites to support increased voice and data usage.

    "Cingular Wireless is committed to building the best network for its customers and we're determined to deliver on the commitment in the Treasure Valley," said Dewey Garner, Director of Sales for Utah/Southern Idaho, Cingular Wireless. "Seventy-five percent of the new sites will be on air and providing a higher quality network experience for customers by early July."

    Here are some of the highlights:

    * In the Boise area 10 new cell sites are improving coverage in areas that
    include Downtown, the North End, Franklin and Orchard, and in the Flying
    "Y" area.
    * In the Nampa/Caldwell area four new cells sites are increasing coverage
    in Downtown Nampa, South Nampa, at Karcher and I-84, and near Kuna.
    * In Meridian two new cell sites will serve areas where the population is
    growing.
    * Hidden Springs, another area growing quickly will have a new cell site
    later this year.
    * On Interstate 84 near Mud Springs, a new cell site will add coverage
    between Boise and Mt. Home
    * A new cell site in Melba will improve quality and coverage.

    AT&T did a reasonable job in Boise, but it's good to see Cingular try to improve there. The stretch from Mountain Home to Boise has been a coverage black hole for years.
