AT&T to invest $14B to enhance its wireless, broadband networks nationwide



Published: Tue, November 13, 2012 @ 1:08 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — AT&T has announced plans to invest $14 billion during the next three years to significantly expand its wireless and broadband networks across the country, with a portion of the money dedicated to Ohio.

In an effort to be more competitive with companies like Verizon Communications and cable companies like Comcast Corp., the investment plan will devote $8 billion to network upgrades for mobile data and calling, as well as another $6 billion to wire line equipment.

Holly Hollingsworth, a company spokeswoman in Ohio, said AT&T has not yet provided a state-by-state breakdown, but she said that by examining what the company has invested in the state within the last three years, it provides a positive clue for how Ohio stands to benefit.

Between 2009 and 2011, AT&T invested more than $1.4 billion to improve local networks in the state. Combined with the $212 million it spent throughout Ohio in the first six months of this year, that brings AT&T’s total Ohio investment since 2009 to about $1 million per day, Hollingsworth said.
