Jones praised by Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce for His Efforts to Create Consumer-Focused Environment

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri House Majority Floor Leader Tim Jones, R-Eureka, announced today that AT&T customers in the Chesterfield area will soon benefit from improved mobile broadband coverage. Jones said the telecommunications company is enhancing its network to increase mobile broadband capacity at local cell sites.

In a news release from AT&T regarding the announcement, Jones was singled out by Joan Schmelig, President of the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce, for his work in creating an environment that encourages companies to expand and grow in the area. “Missouri has set the standard for investment based on a consumer-focused environment thanks to the leadership of legislators such as Majority Floor Leader Tim Jones,” said Schmelig. “These upgrades will help our businesses continue to provide Chesterfield with the quality services that they expect and deserve.”

“We’ve been successful in our efforts to keep Missouri a low-tax state that is attractive for business expansion and job growth,” said Jones. “It is such a positive for our community to have excellent telecommunication companies that are willing to invest in improving the services they provide. This is a big win for all businesses and consumers in our area who use smartphones and mobile devices.”

In its release, AT&T said its network enhancement will add new layers of frequency to more efficiently manage available spectrum and increase mobile broadband capacity at local cell sites. The changes will improve both broadband coverage and voice performance.
