Multi-gig speeds and excellent value expected in the Mesa area
What’s the news?
AT&T* plans to expand its award-winning fiber internet service to bring reliable, high-speed broadband to the Mesa, Ariz., area. Service is expected to be available to local residents in 2023.
AT&T is the nation’s largest fiber internet provider1 and is leading the nation’s largest fiber build. With this expansion, Mesa area residents can connect to new opportunities with fast, reliable and secure internet service. And where AT&T offers fiber, we win in wireless. This means more Mesa residents could soon enjoy America’s Most Reliable Wireless Network.2
“Fiber is hands-down the best technology to deliver high-speed broadband, and this expansion is allowing AT&T to aggressively roll out service to the Mesa area,” said John Stankey, Chief Executive Officer, AT&T. “Our long-term goal is to provide fiber to as many customers as we can, and this is just one of many steps we’re taking to achieve that goal.”
Why is this important?
Mesa is one of the largest and fastest growing cities in America, so AT&T sees a great opportunity to deliver better access to education, jobs, healthcare and more through the power of fiber connectivity. AT&T expects to offer speeds of up to 5-Gigs of fiber-based broadband to more than 100,000 homes in and around the Mesa area. AT&T’s previously provided capital investment guidance is unchanged.
“In an increasingly virtual world, access to high-speed internet is a key to success for individuals, families and business owners,” said John Giles, Mayor of Mesa. “We welcome AT&T to Mesa as their team delivers fiber connectivity, ultimately creating better access to education, jobs and healthcare for our great city.”
AT&T also has a long and productive business relationship with Corning Incorporated, its largest fiber manufacturing supplier. Corning’s recent investment in a new optical cable manufacturing facility in the Mesa area will help produce the fiber-optic cable needed to help millions of Americans connect to new opportunities and further close the digital divide.
