Investing in our Communities
In Alaska, we invested more than $150 million in our wireless broadband network infrastructure from 2020-2022 to connect more people to greater possibility.
We know how important it is for our customers to stay connected through life’s defining moments, whether you’re celebrating or grieving, learning or working, creating or sharing. That’s why we’re focused on boosting network reliability and capacity as we expand our network. We’re working to help residents get the best possible AT&T experience wherever they live, work and play.
Committed to expanding connectivity, our investment focuses on all facets of the network —including FirstNet,® Built with AT&T.
- Supporting First Responders by Expanding the Nation’s Public Safety Network: As America’s public safety’s communications partner, we’re giving more of the public safety community access to their network. With FirstNet, we’re helping to connect public safety agencies and organizations in nearly 250 communities across the state.
- FirstNet includes unique benefits for first responders like always-on priority and preemption, and high-quality Band 14 spectrum to keep public safety mission ready.
- We’ve rolled out Band 14 at more than 200 sites across Alaska to provide public safety with truly dedicated coverage and capacity when they need it. Areas currently benefiting from Band 14 include Kusilvak Census Area and Bethel Census Area.
At AT&T, we believe every American should be connected to the internet and we’re working with governments and non-profit organizations to make it happen. We’re on track to deliver on our $2B commitment between 2021-2023 to help bridge the digital divide and tackle barriers to broadband access, adoption and affordability.
- AT&T is participating in the FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) to help make broadband more affordable for millions of American households. In Alaska, eligible households can apply the federal benefit to AT&T wireless plans with data, such as PREPAID1 and Cricket Wireless.”
- We created AT&T Connected Learning to invest in digital inclusion, digital literacy and digital learning solutions to help today’s students and their families succeed wherever they learn – at home, in the community and in the classroom.
- With 23 Connected Learning Centers already open across the U.S., we’ve announced plans to reach 50 total centers nationwide, including at Boys & Girls Clubs.
- In Alaska, we’ve held 8 digital literacy workshops and distributed 55 computers to students and their families as part of our commitment to help bridge the digital divide.
