AT&T Statement on Latest Round of Capital Projects Fund Awards

Statement from Jeff Luong, President of AT&T’s Broadband Access & Adoption Initiative:

We commend the Administration’s continued focus on closing the digital divide with the announcement today of five more state awards from the U.S. Treasury’s Capital Projects Fund. As states continue to focus on extending high-speed, reliable broadband access, the federal funding is critical for reaching unserved and underserved areas. To support the unprecedented funding from both public and private sectors, Corning announced plans to expand U.S. manufacturing of fiber-optic cable and, in collaboration with AT&T, to create workforce training programs. AT&T is committed to expanding access and today announced plans to deploy fiber service in Arizona. AT&T looks forward to continuing to work closely with federal, state and local leaders across the country on this effort.
