AT&T (NYSE: T) is reporting a nearly $1.2 billion investment in Indiana wireless and wired networks during 2016-2018. In 2018, AT&T says it made over 900 wireless network upgrades in the state, including those that led to the launch of 5G in the city of Indianapolis.
The company says it has also helped meet the needs of customers in rural areas through the FCC’s Connect America Fund.
"For Indiana to continue to thrive and attract new jobs and innovation, sustained investment by the private sector is crucial," said State Rep. Ed Soliday, who serves as the chair of the Indiana House of Representatives Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications Committee. "By continuing to build state-of-the-art infrastructure in our state, AT&T is making business growth possible and assuring that our residents have the tools to stay connected and entertained."
