(Stacey Tinsley, BIZ. Magazine)

AT&T is continuing its efforts to close the digital divide and connect people wherever they live and work by expanding their award-winning fiber network to serve more residential and small business locations across Bossier City and the surrounding area.

AT&T announced in early November new availability of AT&T Fiber in the Haughton area. 

These new locations are part of the continuing investments across Bossier Parish.

“These investments are vital for our area families, and we appreciate the work that AT&T is doing to connect our community,” said Haughton City Mayor Kim Gaspard.

The expanded network will give more customers access to ultra-fast home internet speeds up to 5-Gigs.[3] You can sign up to be notified when AT&T Fiber is available to their address through att.com/notifyme.

“High-speed connectivity is critical for businesses and residents in our community. Whether their addresses are in Bossier City or out in the Parish, this kind of modern, high-speed connectivity is critical to a stronger future with greater opportunities for our residents,” said Bossier Parish Police Juror Philip Rodgers.

AT&T is committed to connecting more Americans to reliable, high-speed broadband internet in several ways, including expanding and upgrading our network and participating in the federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The ACP provides eligible households with a benefit of up to $30 a month (up to $75 on qualifying Tribal lands) to reduce the cost of broadband service and can be applied to AT&T Fiber, where available. Or use it toward Access from AT&T, offering internet speeds of up to 100Mbps for $0 after the ACP benefit is appplied. After you confirm your ACP eligibility, call us at 866-986-0963 to discuss your options and order service. Be sure to have your ACP application ID handy when you call.

“We are continually working to help close the digital divide by expanding our fiber footprint and delivering ultra-fast internet that keeps residents and businesses connected,” said David Aubrey, Regional Vice President, AT&T. “We are committed to investing in the modern, high-speed network infrastructure necessary in today’s economy, and we are also committed to supporting consumers to help remove connectivity obstacles for income-eligible homes.”
