MARSHFIELD - Starting today, your cell phone service should be better in the Marshfield area. Two AT&T towers are part of an ongoing investment by the company.

The company is providing better network coverage throughout the state. Customers are more willing to travel and live in places with reliable coverage. So the company hopes better service will lead to more jobs and economic growth.

At the start of 2012, AT&T invested almost 100-million-dollars in its Wisconsin networks. The company plans to keep improving Wisconsin service in 2013.
