by BIZ Magazine

AT&T is upgrading its network across Louisiana, including Shreveport.

With an investment of more than 1.3 billion from 2020-2022, AT&T has expanded wireless connectivity, increased access to high-speed broadband, and enhanced the First Responders network – FirstNet.

Cities and communities seeing the impacts of this investment include: Baton Rouge, Broussard, Brusly, , Covington, Donaldsonville, Gretna, Hammond, Kenner, Lafayette, Lake Charles, New Orleans, Ponchatoula, Shreveport, Slidell, Sterlington, Sulphur, Thibodaux, West Monroe, Westlake, Westwego, Zachary and more.

Other highlights include:

·         Expanding Access to Fiber: With more than 2.8 million strand miles of fiber in Louisiana, AT&T Fiber® is now available to more than 550,000 customer locations across the state.

·         FirstNet: In Louisiana, we’re connecting first responders in more than 230 communities and have rolled out Band 14 on more than 1,200 mobility sites across the state, providing public safety with truly dedicated network coverage vital to emergency response efforts.

·         Increased 5G performance: We’re ramping up performance in high-traffic areas.

·         Helping bridge the digital divide: We’re on track to deliver on our commitment to help bridge the digital divide. We recently stood alongside state and local leaders and community organizations like the United Way of Southeast Louisiana and the Franklinton Community Family Center, donating laptops for those organizations to give to families in need. We have also worked with libraries in communities across the state, offering digital skills trainings to help our neighbors take full advantage of the resources available online.
