DALLAS, Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* today announced that it has added 1 million additional business customer locations to its fiber network since 2012 when the company began its aggressive fiber expansion program. The expansion helped extend the AT&T U.S. fiber network another 76,000 route miles, bringing the total to nearly 500,000. AT&T offers business customers high-speed Internet products on its fiber network in every major metro in the company's 21-state footprint.

Customers can complement their high-speed Internet with network security options and online backup to help protect and virtualize their business-critical information.
