Georgia has benefited from the strong vision of our elected leaders such as Governor Nathan Deal, Lt. Governor Casey Cagle, and House Speaker David Ralston who have implemented economic policies that encourage investments by companies like AT&T.  Many Georgians are now benefiting from the advanced products and services that our investment of almost $3.9 billion in our networks over the last three years is providing.    

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