AT&T has expanded its mobile Internet coverage at the hospital, by completing the installation of a new Distributed Antenna System (DAS). According to a release, a number of strategically-placed antennas will provide enhanced, consistent wireless coverage wherever geographical limitations – terrain, building construction, etc. – or crowd density might otherwise prevent an optimal wireless experience.

“We want our customers to have a great network experience wherever they are, no matter what they’re doing – whether that’s making a call, checking email, downloading apps or surfing the Internet,” said Jim Murray, president, AT&T Michigan “With initiatives like Project VIP, we’re continuing our investment in the wireless network, and providing enhanced wireless coverage at Henry Ford is just one way that we’re investing in West Bloomfield.”

The Henry Ford installation is part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan announced last fall to expand and enhance the company's IP broadband networks. AT&T plans to add more than 1,000 DAS nationwide by year-end 2015, as well as more than 10,000 macro cell sites, and to deploy more than 40,000 small cells
