Connecting Communities to the American Dream

For over a century, AT&T has connected America to help people live, learn, work, and succeed. We remain committed to doing our part to bring connectivity, educational resources, and economic opportunity to the millions of people who need access to affordable broadband.

We believe broadband connectivity is essential. Addressing affordability, access and adoption is at the heart of our commitment to creating connection.

Through low-cost broadband offers like Access from AT&T1, participation in the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB), and launching AT&T Connected Learning, we are investing $2 billion over the next 3 years to help bridge the digital divide.

Backed by the largest union workforce in the industry, AT&T invested more than $105 billion in American infrastructure from 2016-2020 as we work to continue to expand broadband connectivity.

The broadband debate continues to be a central focus in Washington. Now is the chance to get it right and bridge the digital divide. By working together with government and other industry leaders, we can expand affordable access and increase broadband adoption in communities across the country, to help every American have an opportunity to succeed.
