AT&T launches Sandy high-speed service

AT&T has launched high-speed mobile internet service in Sandy.

AT&T customers with a data plan and LTE-capable device will see an immediate and automatic increase in speed when using the mobile internet, two-way video calling, streaming music and movies, downloading apps and files and sharing pictures.

The upgrade is part of a multi-billion dollar planned investment to expand and enhance wireless and wireline broadband services, improving Internet service quality, speed and reliability. 

AT&T invested nearly $375 million in its Oregon network during the past three years and made 170 network upgrades in Idaho last year, including new cell sites, addition of wireless and wired network capacity and new broadband network connections.

AntFarm celebrates opening of new can donation center

AntFarm and the Ford Institute Leadership Program will celebrate their new returnables program with a party on Saturday, Sept. 26.

Thousands of cans and bottles are donated to AntFarm each month by the community to help the nonprofit group meet its operating budget, and volunteers take them to the recycling center daily. Individuals from the area’s Ford Institute Leadership Program volunteered to help AntFarm streamline the process.

On Saturday, the two organizations will host a ribbon cutting to kick off the new bottle and can donation center. Rose City Hot Club, an local acoustic swing-jazz band, will perform as well.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Mt. Hood Farmers Market location, 38600 Proctor Blvd.
