JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --The following statement may be attributed to Joe York, President of AT&T-Florida


The decision by the FCC to move forward with geographic trials signifies a recognition that the future of America will be greatly enriched by economic growth and innovation that will be generated by the evolution to an all-IP Network. 

Florida has benefited from the strong vision of our elected leaders such as Governor Rick Scott, Senate President Don Gaetz and Speaker of the House Will Weatherford who have implemented economic policies that encourage investments by companies like AT&T.  Many Floridians are now benefiting from the advanced products and services that our investment of almost $2.8 billion in our networks over the last three years is providing.    

Florida is ready for this next step that is necessary to ensure our future competitiveness and individual success!
