Tuesday, June 20th, 2023
Continuing our efforts to close the digital divide and connect people wherever they live and work, AT&T* is expanding our superfast fiber network to serve more residential and small business locations across Rockdale County.
This week, AT&T announced new availability of AT&T Fiber to more than 1,600 customer locations in parts of the Conyers area and Rockdale County. These new locations are in addition to the more than 15,000 customer locations across Rockdale County that currently have access to AT&T Fiber.
“We are proud to have AT&T as a solid business partner supporting Rockdale County’s overall focus of enhanced infrastructure and growth,” said Oz Nesbitt, Chairman, Rockdale County Board of Commissioners. “AT&T’s fiber investment in various communities throughout Rockdale County will support increased bandwidth levels, improved data transmission speed, and greater reliability through their implementation of innovative solutions. As AT&T continues its efforts to close the digital divide, we are excited to celebrate this new fiber availability.”
“Congratulations to AT&T, a mainstay in the Conyers-Rockdale community, on continuing to improve its service delivery to residents by providing faster and more reliable services through its fiber infrastructure,” said Mayor Vince Evans. “We’re glad you are part of our community and look forward to these and other exciting improvements in the future.”
The expanded network will give more customers access to super-fast home internet speeds up to 5-Gigs. You can sign up to be notified when AT&T Fiber is available to your address through att.com/notifyme.
AT&T is committed to connecting more Americans to reliable, high-speed broadband internet in several ways, including expanding and upgrading our network and participating in the federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The ACP provides eligible households with a benefit of up to $30 a month (up to $75 a month on qualifying Tribal lands) to reduce the cost of broadband service and can be applied to AT&T Fiber, where available. Or use it toward Access from AT&T, offering speeds up to 100Mbps for $0 after the ACP benefit is applied. After confirming ACP eligibility, those who qualify can go to att.com/getacp or call us at 866-986-0963 to sign up for service. Have your ACP application ID handy.
