AT&T plans fiber-optic network expansion to deliver improved technology to businesses
Tuesday, Feb 06, 2018
AT&T is continuing to invest in expanding our fiber footprint to provide businesses of all sizes with advanced technology and communications services. AT&T has over 1.1 million global route miles of fiber. More than 8 million business customer locations nationwide are either on or within 1,000 feet of our fiber. That’s more than 2x our nearest competitor.

There are nearly 400,000 U.S. business buildings lit with AT&T’s fiber nationwide. This covers more than 1.8 million U.S. business customer locations1 – and we’re adding thousands more buildings each month.

“It all starts with fiber. Fiber accelerates everything that businesses need to digitally transform. Without fiber, innovative solutions like highly-secure networking, cloud computing and 5G wouldn’t be possible,” said Mo Katibeh, chief marketing officer, AT&T Business. “As we continue to expand our national fiber network, we want businesses to take full advantage of our fiber highway that is essentially right to their doorstep.”

With companies using more data, applications and services in the cloud than ever before, high-speed, ever-present connectivity has never been more vital. We offer large and small business customers high-speed connectivity solutions on our fiber network in every major metro nationwide. AT&T’s fiber network provides the bandwidth needed to support data-intensive services like video conferencing, collaboration, cloud services and more.

AT&T has a variety of network connectivity and speed options that businesses can tailor to fit their unique needs. AT&T Business Fiber provides blazing-fast internet service with speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second (Gbps). With these speeds, a business can:

  • Download 8,000 word processing documents in 1 second.
  • Download a 2 hour high definition video in 36 seconds.
  • Backup/restore 1 terabyte hard drive in 2.5 hours.
For businesses looking to go beyond 1Gbps, AT&T Dedicated Internet gives a symmetrical connection with dedicated access to the internet. Alternatively, AT&T Switched Ethernet ServiceSM, provides companies with multiple locations a simple, scalable and affordable Ethernet VPN solution. Plus, with Network on Demand, enterprises can scale bandwidth up and down in near real time. These services – and more – are all possible with fiber. Fiber is the key differentiator in a high-speed world.
