Good news for Red Sox fans wanting to call Mom or look up Dustin Pedroia's stats while at the game (and, of course, Fenway residents): AT&T has announced they are improving cell phone reception at Fenway Park.
According to a press release July 28, AT&T will increase mobile broadband coverage in the Fenway area with the addition of new "strategically placed" wireless antennas.
The additional antennas--called a "Distributed Antenna System" are "expected to help improve call reliability and enable more consistent network access to help baseball fans make the most of their AT&T devices while rooting on Bostonís hometown baseball team," the company said in a press release.
In the past, the press release said, factors like the terrain, buildings, and crowd density affected wireless service in the Fenway.
According to the company, a similar addition improved wireless service for football fans in Foxboro last January.
No word yet if the change will impact calls to the bullpen.
