AT&T fiber reaches 1 million new business customer locations

DALLAS, TX -

This is a news release from AT&T

 AT&T* today announced that it has added 1 million additional business customer locations – including over 10,500 in the state of Mississippi - to its fiber network since 2012 when the company began its aggressive fiber expansion program. The expansion helped extend the AT&T U.S. fiber network another 76,000 route miles, bringing the total to nearly 500,000. AT&T offers business customers high-speed Internet products on its fiber network in every major metro in the company's 21-state footprint.

"This announcement is an important milestone on our journey to expand the reach of our fiber-based services, as we bring them to more Mississippi businesses each year," stated Mayo Flynt, president of AT&T Mississippi. "Every day, AT&T Mississippi employees are turning our billions of dollars of investment into high-speed Internet access for Mississippi consumers and businesses, and those investments are possible in large part because of the pro-investment policies, championed at the local and state levels by our elected leaders."

The AT&T fiber network provides the bandwidth needed to support data intensive services such as video, collaboration, cloud services and more through products such as Ethernet, Virtual Private Networking, Managed Internet Service, and AT&T Business Fiber. Customers can complement their high-speed Internet with network security options and online backup to help protect and virtualize their business-critical information.

"Our business customers continuously tell us that they need reliable network solutions to help them operate faster and with more agility. Our fiber network gives them the capabilities they need to support mission-critical business functions both now and in the future," said Steve McGaw, Chief Marketing Officer, AT&T Business Solutions.
