And customers can complement their high-speed Internet with our network security options to help protect their business-critical information.”

AT&T is also launching nationwide U-verse Business Voice over AT&T Business Fiber. The voice over IP phone service delivers improved sound quality and high reliability. Through Voice over IP it delivers voice services over the Internet rather than over a traditional phone line. Customers get many standard calling features, plus enhanced functionality not found on traditional landline phones. These enhancements will help boost productivity. A self-service website helps businesses conveniently manage calling features, call preferences, voicemail and more.
AT&T is investing in high-speed Internet in urban and rural areas using the latest wired and wireless technologies and has aggressively expanded its fiber footprint over the past few years, both to consumers and businesses. We have expanded coverage to reach over 1 million incremental business customer locations in the U.S. with over 15,000 of those in Oklahoma. We currently have over 220 multi-tenant office buildings that are live with AT&T Business Fiber in Oklahoma. AT&T continues to build out as demand requires. New buildings are constructed, and old buildings are retrofitted every day throughout the country, at a massive scale. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the seasonally adjusted annual value of private, nonresidential construction in the U.S. in 2015 was $394.4 billion. AT&T’s goal is to work with building owners and property managers to strive to satisfy the demand for fiber services of the tenants of that construction.
AT&T invested nearly $825 million in Oklahoma wireless and wired networks from 2013-2015.
