    AT&T Completes Final Phase of Blue Grass Parkway Network
    Thursday April 12, 5:00 am ET
    Travelers on Kentucky Scenic Highway Now Have Coverage Along Entire Route From Elizabethtown to Woodford County


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. and LEXINGTON, Ky., April 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T - News) announced today that Cingular, now AT&T and the nation's largest wireless carrier, has expanded its Kentucky wireless service to cover the entire 71.13-mile length of the Martha Layne Collins Blue Grass Parkway, allowing residents and visitors to the area to stay connected as they travel the scenic highway.
    The last cell site in the chain, near Bardstown, completes the 114-site chain stretching from east of Elizabethtown all the way to Woodford County, near Lexington.

    AT&T has added nine new cell sites in Kentucky since January and more than 25 cell sites last year, expanding coverage and enhancing network capacity for residents and visitors. The company also completed the integration of its cell sites with those of former Cingular Wireless to establish a single, enhanced network. As a result, AT&T's ALLOVER(TM) Network* -- the nation's largest digital voice and data network -- is now bigger and better across the Commonwealth.

    "These 14 sites are a crucial part of our Kentucky network," said Bill Plantz, executive director of Network Engineering for the company's Tennessee/Kentucky market. "The parkway links Elizabethtown, Bardstown, Lawrenceburg, Harrodsburg, Versailles and Lexington - many of Kentucky's major towns and cities. And it was a priority for us to ensure that our network served the entire stretch of highway."

    "Our Blue Grass Parkway sites enable us to provide our customers in central Kentucky with the seamless network service they expect," said Jim Thorpe, vice president and general manager of AT&T's wireless division in Tennessee/Kentucky. "We have a continuing commitment to providing the best wireless coverage possible, as well as innovative wireless products and services and a quality customer service experience, for all our Kentucky customers."

    Thanks for getting with the show ATT, Sprint's covered that for a while. I think VzW's had it too.

    IIRC, the BG already had some Cingular coverage, but it wasn't very good because of so much of it being right on the (850) license border between Cingular and Bluegrass.
