This expansion furthers our leadership in the industry as the largest provider of fiber-powered home internet service across our 21-state footprint.

We’re also the nation’s largest provider of fiber for business services. Currently, we cover nearly 2.2 million U.S. business customer locations. With fiber, businesses can access innovative solutions like highly-secure networking, cloud computing and video conferencing and collaboration tools.

An ultra-fast internet connection powered by AT&T Fiber lets you quickly access and stream the latest online movies, music and games. You can easily telecommute, video-conference, upload and download photos and videos, and connect faster to the cloud.

Eligible locations can choose from a range of internet speed plans on our 100% fiber network. Plans are designed to deliver the same speeds up and down. These plans include AT&T Internet 100, AT&T Internet 300 and AT&T Internet 1000.2

By investing in adding backhaul over our vast fiber network, and bringing fiber to area homes and businesses, we’re ramping up to be prepared for the launch of 5G when the time comes. Our continued investment in fiber and 5G and the future of connectivity unlocks faster speeds and better experiences for education, business, entertainment and more.
