AT&T Fiber Broadband Now Available to More People in Illinois

What’s new? AT&T Fiber broadband is now available to more than 830,000 residential and business customer locations in the state. It’s an increase of 150,000 locations over the last 2 years.

That’s fast. AT&T Fiber is fast and reliable broadband that’s delivering speeds of up to 5-Gigs for both uploads and downloads.1

Tell me more. Like freeways with several high-speed lanes, these high broadband speeds open those lanes for various connected devices to run at their fastest possible speed.

Who is it helping? AT&T Fiber connectivity helps students learning online; employees working and videoconferencing from home; small businesses expanding markets; and first responders protecting and serving their communities.

The bottom line: AT&T is working to help bridge the digital divide by connecting Illinoisans wherever they live, work and play.

  • We invested more than $3.1 billion in the state’s wireless and wireline network infrastructure from 2020-2022.
  • AT&T has more than 3.2 million strand-miles of fiber optics in Illinois.
