AT&T Invests in Tennessee
AT&T invested nearly $1.15 billion in our Tennessee wireless and wireline networks from 2013 through 2015.
Elected officials and economic development leaders across the state reacted positively:
“In an increasingly competitive market for job attraction, this is the type of incentive that can help Memphis contend for the best jobs,” said Senator Sara Kyle. “High-speed internet is quickly becoming the backbone of our economy and news of this private investment is most welcome.”
“As Nashville’s economy continues to experience record growth, it is imperative businesses have access to the latest technologies and fastest internet,” said Senator Steve Dickerson. “Working with my colleagues, I will continue to advocate for a regulatory environment that fosters private investment so Nashville’s economy may continue to thrive for many years to come.”
“This is exciting news,” said Representative Jason Powell. “Not only do businesses benefit from this kind of investment, but communities become more attractive when they can tout robust high-speed internet connectivity through fiber-optic connections.”
“Access to fiber-optic infrastructure has helped Memphis-area businesses stay connected, be more successful and create jobs for many years, and it is encouraging to see the rollout of more products that will further increase the availability of these high-speed, gigabit connections to Memphis’ business community,” said Phil Trenary, president and CEO, Greater Memphis Chamber. “It is a testament to our community that private industry recognizes the need and demand for these high-speed connections and is making them more readily available in our offices and in our homes.”
“This is great news for Nashville businesses, both big and small, who require reliable high-speed internet,” said Ralph Schulz, president & CEO, Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce. “AT&T is investing millions in new fiber-optic infrastructure across our region and expanding the capabilities of its already robust broadband network services. This strategic investment will translate directly into additional jobs and business expansions.”
AT&T has aggressively expanded its fiber footprint over the past few years, both to consumers and businesses. We have expanded coverage to reach over 1 million incremental business customer locations in the US, with over 28,500 of those in Tennessee.
