Hello and Welcome!
We’re glad you’re here! We built this website as a way to keep you informed of our work to bring world-class wireless coverage to Pacific Palisades.
We can provide a better wireless experience and ensure that the placement and appearance of any new facilities protect and preserve the beauty of the Pacific Palisades community. On this website you’ll find information on wireless technologies we’re working on to help improve the quality and reliability of your service.
Pacific Palisades is one of the most celebrated communities within the City of Los Angeles, known for its natural beauty, clean air and picturesque views. International destinations like Pacific Palisades deserve a robust, next generation wireless network. That’s why AT&T is working hard to upgrade our wireless infrastructure in Pacific Palisades while preserving and respecting its serene environment.
AT&T and our employees have been part of the Los Angeles community for more than 135 years and we’re making significant upgrades to our wireless infrastructure at a critical time in the evolution of technology, when people are less tethered to a home or desk phone and need access to the people and information that are important to them.
Thanks for visiting and we hope you will come back again for updates on our progress, answers to your questions, and for ways to be engaged in our efforts to bring a more robust, 21st century wireless network to Pacific Palisades.

Six Tips on How to Avoid Catching the Flu from Your Mobile Phone
Nowadays, people take their phones with them everywhere they go, from the gym to the bathroom and then to the dinner table and even to bed.
Throughout your day, you inevitably shake hands, touch doorknobs and staircase railings – and then you touch your phone and put it against your face.
Viruses are known to live on inanimate objects like phones, particularly in colder climates and seasons (because heat kills viruses) so we need to be aware of who we share or pass our phone to.
With flu season in full swing, it’s crucial that we keep our phones germ-free. The flu has been spreading fast across the country this year, with more than half of states reporting widespread activity. In fact, this year’s flu outbreak is one of the worst in a decade, says the Center for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC).
Below are tips to help you avoid getting the flu and other harmful germs from your phone:
- Consider getting a flu shot. If you are sick and experiencing flu symptoms, do not share your phone and stay home to avoid infecting others. Keep your germs to yourself.
- Avoid sick people. If you share your phone with friends or family be careful, you may be sharing more than just your phone, you may be spreading a virus!
- Wash your hands frequently. Sing a verse from a familiar song (e.g., “Happy Birthday”) while lathering and rinsing. Don’t rush. If soap and water are not available to wash hands then use disinfectant like hand sanitizer.
- Wash your phone! If you think it has been contaminated, disinfect your phone. Use a wrung-out disinfectant wipe or spray a paper towel with disinfectant. Don’t spray the phone. (Remember that washing your hands and then touching a dirty phone or keypad is self-limiting).
- Try using a Bluetooth device or other hands-free headset, minimizing your keypad-to-face exposure
- Don’t – please don’t – use your phone in a restroom. Some things can wait!
