American telecom network operator AT&T has made investment in adding 1 million new business customer locations to its fiber network since 2012.

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.

AT&T fiber network provides the bandwidth needed to support data intensive services such as video, collaboration, cloud services and more through products such as Ethernet, Virtual Private Networking, Managed Internet Service, AT&T GigaPower and AT&T Business Fiber.

“Our business customers tell us that they need reliable network solutions to help them operate faster and with more agility. Our fiber network gives them the capabilities they need to support mission-critical business functions both now and in the future,” said Steve McGaw, chief marketing officer of AT&T Business Solutions.

“AT&T’s business fiber service has made moving big files up and down our distribution channels faster than ever before,” said Matt Nies, president at Pixelbox Visual Design, a video production studio in the Midwest.
