AT&T is opening a new authorized dealer location in South Kingstown to meet the growing needs of its customers in the region. The store will provide customers with options for the latest devices, accessories, and services from AT&T. The new store is located at Crossing at the Tower Plaza, 3033 Tower Hill Road.
“Our goal is to become America’s premier retailer by providing an exceptional experience in every interaction and that begins with having stores conveniently located for our customers,” said Bryan Gonterman, Vice President and General Manager, AT&T New England. “AT&T customers looking for the latest wireless applications and services, smartphones, tablets and accessories to mirror their mobile lifestyles now have another great location to find the right solution to fit their mobile lifestyle.”
This new dealer location is the latest example of AT&T’s investment in Rhode Island. Between 2011 and 2013, AT&T invested more than $50 million in its wireless and wired networks in the state.
“We are committed to bringing job opportunities and new goods and services to South Kingstown consumers and this is the kind of investment that we want to celebrate as we continue to grow our local economy,” said South Kingstown Town Council Vice President Carol Hagan McEntee Esq. “Any time we can celebrate the opening of a new store, especially one with a cutting-edge retail concept like this one, it’s a great day.”
AT&T has 8 company-owned stores in Rhode Island and also sells its products and services in authorized dealer locations and select national retail stores. AT&T’s current retail expansion comes amid the company’s Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan announced fall 2012 to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks. Through this investment, AT&T is supporting its customers’ growing desire for high-speed Internet access and new mobile, app and cloud-based services. As part of Project VIP, AT&T plans to add more than 10,000 macro cell sites nationwide by year-end 2015, as well as deploy more than 40,000 small cells and add more than 1,000 Distributed Antenna Systems to increase the density of its wireless network.
