Investing Over $100 Billion in American Infrastructure

Connection does more than bring us together – it puts a world of possibilities at our fingertips.

That’s why AT&T has invested more than $130 billion in American infrastructure over the past five years1 to connect Americans to a brighter future. And we’re not stopping there, we are working to:

  • Continue leading the nation as the largest fiber internet provider2 with plans to expand to 30 million total customer locations by the end of 2025, enabling everyone from students to small business owners to tap into the power of broadband connectivity for the very first time.
  • Enhance America’s most reliable 5G network3 which now reaches more than 281 million people in nearly 22,000 cities and towns. Our mid-band 5G spectrum roll out now covers 100 million people and we expect to cover more than 130 million people by the end of 2022, nearly double our initial yearend target.4
  • Strengthen communications for first responders with FirstNet, Built with AT&T, the only purpose-built public safety network, which covers 2.81 million square miles and more than 99% of the U.S. population today. All to make your community safer, smarter and stronger.

And now, thanks to the unprecedented federal broadband funds made available, communities across the country are also able to collaborate with companies like AT&T who can bring the deep expertise to expand broadband availability to residents and businesses at a lower expense.

In one Indiana community, it’s having a nearly immediate impact. One year ago, one-third of the population in unincorporated Vanderburgh County did not have access to fixed broadband solutions. But thanks to a $39 million public-private partnership, we’ve started to connect more than 20,000 households and businesses in the county.

Take a look at a recent visit made by AT&T CEO John Stankey and hear from residents, farmers and employees on the ground:

Let’s keep it going and not waste this moment. By expanding broadband access and investing in America’s future, we can open a bridge to possibility for all.
