SAN FRANCISCO, May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T1 is adding faster Internet speeds for more businesses over AT&T Business Fiber. Business customers in the San Francisco area can now enjoy download and upload speeds up to 1 gigabit per second (Gbps).2 AT&T Business Fiber is a blazing-fast Internet service available in AT&T Fiber Ready buildings.
With Internet speeds up to 1Gbps a business can:
- Download 8,000 word processing documents in 1 second
- Download a 2 hour high definition video in 36 seconds
- Backup/restore 1 terabyte hard drive in 2.5 hours
Let's just say, it's FAST!
Internet speeds up to 1Gbps are available through AT&T Business Fiber in the Chicago, Dallas, Miami and San Francisco market areas. We plan to launch Internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second in more markets in the near future. For more information, check out the AT&T Business Fiber website.
We're also launching nationwide U-verse Business Voice over AT&T Business Fiber.3 The voice over IP phone service delivers great sound quality and high reliability. Through Voice over IP we're delivering voice services over the Internet rather than over a traditional phone line. Customers get many standard calling features, plus enhanced functionality not found on traditional landline phones. These enhancements will help boost productivity. A self-service website helps businesses conveniently manage calling features, call preferences, voicemail and more.
AT&T is investing in high-speed Internet in urban and rural areas using the latest wired and wireless technologies and has aggressively expanded its fiber footprint over the past few years, both to consumers and businesses. We have expanded coverage to reach over 1 million incremental business customer locations in the US. We currently have over 1,600 multi-tenant office buildings and 97,000 business customer locations that are live with AT&T fiber in the San Francisco area. We continue to build out as demand requires. New buildings are constructed, and old buildings are retrofitted every day throughout the country, at a massive scale. In fact, according to the US Census Bureau, the seasonally adjusted annual value of private, nonresidential construction in the US in 2015 was $394.4 billion. Our goal is to work with building owners and property managers to strive to satisfy the demand for fiber services of the tenants of that construction.
AT&T invested nearly $1.5 billion in its San Francisco area wireless and wireline networks from 2013 through 2015.
