Continuing our efforts to close the digital divide and connect people wherever they live and work, the effort done by AT&Tin recent years has expanded access to AT&T Fiber to more than 500,000 customer locations in communities across the state as of the end of 2022.

“Ensuring that more and more Louisianans have access to reliable internet service is critical for everyone, especially when it comes to education, healthcare, jobs, small businesses and so much more,” said Gov. John Bel Edwards. “I applaud AT&T and the private sector for expanding their services and for working with us at the state level to provide unserved communities with internet service that is faster and more widely available.”

“There’s never more thrilling a time than when we’re able to introduce ultra-fast, reliable and secure internet connectivity to new homes and businesses that need it the most,” said Erin Scarborough, Senior Vice President of Broadband Strategy and Initiatives at AT&T. “Our investments are helping improve internet access in the Louisiana area by ensuring customers get the most out of their internet, whether they are at home, at work or on their mobile devices.”

Today, customers have access to AT&T Fiber in many cities and towns across the state, including: Abbeville, Abita Springs, Alexandria, Baker, Baton Rouge, Bogalusa, Bossier City, Brusly, Carencro, Covington, Denham Springs, Estelle, Gretna, Hammond, Houghton, Houma, Kenner, LaPlace, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Mandeville, Marrero, Metairie, Monroe, Morgan City, New Iberia, New Orleans, Opelousas, Ponchatoula, Ruston, Shreveport, Slidell, Stonewall, Sulphur, Terrytown, Thibodaux, Walker, West Monroe, Youngsville, Zachary, and many other parts of Louisiana.

More than 3,200 AT&T employees call Louisiana home, and in 2022 alone, our teams expanded access to AT&T Fiber to nearly 125,000 customer locations in the state.

“For years, the private sector has expanded broadband across the state, and this continuing work by AT&T and others is vital for the strength of our communities and for the economy across Louisiana,” said Sharon Weston Broome – Mayor-President of East Baton Rouge Parish. “As we work to identify new communities where service needs to be deployed, it is incredibly helpful knowing that there are private sector entities with experience and expertise extending critical, modern infrastructure quickly across the state.”
