AT&T Extends Gigabit Speeds to More Tennessee Businesses

NASHVILLE, TN — AT&T is bringing gigabit Internet speeds to even more businesses in 22 Tennessee communities. With AT&T Business Fiber, more businesses can download and upload up to 1 Gbps. AT&T is also launching nationwide U-verse Business Voice over AT&T Business Fiber. The voice over IP phone service delivers great sound quality and high reliability as calls travel over the Internet. AT&T invested nearly $1.15 billion in Tennessee wireless and wireline networks from 2013 through 2015.

"Access to fiber-optic infrastructure has helped Memphis-area businesses stay connected, be more successful and create jobs for many years, and it is encouraging to see the rollout of more products that will further increase the availability of these high-speed, gigabit connections to Memphis' business community," said Phil Trenary, president and CEO, Greater Memphis Chamber. "It is a testament to our community that private industry recognizes the need and demand for these high-speed connections and is making them more readily available in our offices and in our homes."

"This is great news for Nashville businesses, both big and small, who require reliable high-speed Internet," said Ralph Schulz, president & CEO, Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce. "AT&T is investing millions in new fiber-optic infrastructure across our region and expanding the capabilities of its already robust broadband network services. This strategic investment will translate directly into additional jobs and business expansions."

Expansion
AT&T has aggressively expanded its fiber footprint over the past few years, both to consumers and businesses. The company has expanded coverage to reach over 1 million incremental business customer locations in the US, with over 28,500 of those in Tennessee. It currently has around 360 multi-tenant office buildings that are live with AT&T Business Fiber in Tennessee.
