NEW ORLEANS, LA — Committed to span all layers of its network to communities across the country, telecommunication provider AT&T invested nearly $1.1 billion to connect local customers in Louisiana.

AT &T said that these investments are essential to connecting our customers with their family, friends, and colleagues. Its efforts increase the network's facets, including its speed, reliability, coverage, and overall performance.

"These investments from AT &T are critical to communities across Louisiana because they keep our residents connected and also provide the infrastructure necessary for businesses to connect with their customers and create jobs," said Don Pierson, Secretary, Louisiana Economic Development.

For 2021, AT&T tries to increasing our fiber footprint by 3 million customer locations across more than 90 metro areas. They will serve many areas in Louisiana, including in and around communities like Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Lake Charles, New Orleans, and Shreveport.

AT&T then announced that it would invest $2 billion over the next three years to help address the digital divide nationwide. It also improved critical communications for Louisiana's first responders and public safety with FirstNet, which billed as America's first public safety network.

"From connecting family and loved ones to helping first responders during a crisis, AT&T is committed to investing in communities across Louisiana to build state-of-the-art infrastructure that will keep people connected," said Sonia Perez, president, AT&T Southeast States.

"By continuing to improve our network in Louisiana, we are helping businesses grow and helping to ensure that our customers and communities stay connected."
