“One of the most significant business multipliers is rapid broadband,” Tennessee Senator. Mark Green said. “This investment reflects the commitment of private industry to the continued growth of our community.”

“Families and businesses in the area will benefit from these new high-speed connections, and as we debate the state of broadband deployment in Tennessee, I am very encouraged to see the continuing investments in this vital infrastructure by the private sector,” Tennessee State Representative Curtis Johnson said.

“I am thrilled to see these new services deployed in our rural communities,” Tennessee State Representative Jay Reedy said. “Over the years, the limited remaining areas that lack connectivity to high-speed Internet are becoming fewer and fewer, and as we continue to work to remove barriers to broadband deployment I am confident that we will close that remaining gap.”

“I am thankful for the work being done by our state and local elected officials as they strive to remove barriers to broadband deployment in Tennessee,” said Melinda Shepard, executive director of the Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce. “This kind of investment is vitally important as our communities continue to grow and develop.”

“The billions of dollars AT&T has invested in our wired and wireless high-speed networks is possible in large part because of the smart, pro-investment policies and pro-business pursuits of Sen. Green, Rep. Johnson, Rep. Reedy, and other state and local leaders,” said Kathy Sager, regional director of external and legislative affairs for AT&T in Tennessee. “The hard work being done by the men and women of AT&T is turning our billions of dollars of investments into high-speed connections for Tennesseans all across the state.”

AT&T has invested more than $1.2 billion in its best-in-class wireless and wired networks in Tennessee between 2012 and 2014, extending access to high-speed Internet and driving a wide range of upgrades to reliability, coverage, speed and performance for residents and business customers.

As a result of significant investments from private communications companies like AT&T, the vast majority of Tennesseans – 99.1% according to the FCC – now have access to high-speed Internet. Any remaining gap is found in what the FCC calls “high cost” areas. Recognizing the importance of ensuring access in these limited remaining areas, the FCC’s Connect America Fund (CAF) was created to provide incentives specifically to address this need.

In August we announced plans to participate in the CAF program to extend connectivity to additional locations in mainly rural areas of Tennessee over the next five years.

As a result of our commitment more than 81,000 rural customers in Tennessee will have expanded access to AT&T’s network, with a majority of these areas having access to a high-speed home Internet connection for the first time.

AT&T offers Internet customers a great combination of speed and price, delivering a great value in home Internet service. Additionally, AT&T high-speed Internet customers have access to our entire national AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spot network, at no additional charge.2
