AT&T Launches First Wave of Fixed Wireless Internet in Fresno County

Fixed Wireless Internet - Now available in parts of Mendota and other rural and underserved areas of the county

MENDOTA, CA, December 6, 2017 – AT&T* has expanded Fixed Wireless Internet¹ to homes and small businesses in parts of Mendota and other rural and underserved locations in parts of Fresno County.

Joined by State Assembly member Dr. Joaquin Arambula, Fresno County Supervisor Brian Pacheco, and other community leaders, AT&T announced that Mendota and other areas of Fresno County are included in the rural and underserved locations in California to which AT&T has extended Fixed Wireless service as part of its FCC Connect America Fund commitment.

Residents and businesses can sign-up for service today in eligible parts of Mendota and other areas of Fresno County by calling 1-877-990-0041. AT&T plans to reach over 141,000 locations with this technology across California by 2020.

"In today's digital economy, having access to high-speed internet is essential for our residents and small businesses," said Fresno County Supervisor Brian Pacheco. "AT&T's investment in our rural communities will bring enhanced connectivity, economic growth and educational opportunities.”

The fixed wireless internet technology delivers a reliable home internet connection with download speeds of at least 10Mbps.

"Access to fast and reliable internet is a game changer in today's world, and this is a new way we can connect folks who haven’t had high speed internet available to them. It’s a great story for Fresno County.”

In addition to California, the service is available to residents and businesses in parts of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin, as part of our FCC Connect America Fund commitment.

This is part of a $500,000 total contribution we’re making to local organizations across the country who serve veterans and active duty military personnel. But we’re not stopping with a monetary contribution.

And this contribution is one small way we can express our thanks.”

The SAC VRC was established in 2009 to help veteran students transition from soldiers to scholars. Through grant funds, the work of the SAC Foundation, and collaboration with public and private entities like AT&T, the SAC VRC assists hundreds of veteran students to achieve their academic and career goals through four main initiatives:

Meet a few of our SAC Veteran Students:

Jason Lamb is a United States Army veteran. After re-enrolling in higher education for the fourth time, he was struck by a car while walking across the street. Jason was bedridden, suffered 15 fractures and had nine stitches in his back, but was determined to complete his coursework and take his finals. He earned his associate’s degree at SAC in June 2017, and now continues to volunteer his time at the SAC VRC while pursuing his bachelor’s degree at California State University, Fullerton.

Jonathan Medina is the first in his family born in America. He felt pressure to become a doctor or lawyer, but was never interested in school. Jonathan joined the Marines and returned to civilian life older, wiser, and with a hunger for knowledge. He spoke with numerous community colleges but Santa Ana College and its Veterans Resource Center stood out among the rest. He immediately noticed that staff go above and beyond to make sure veterans are always taken care of and have access to academic and personal resources, such as financial planning. Fellow veterans at the VRC are now like family to Jonathan, and he looks forward to graduation day with them.

Contribution to Bay Area Video Coalition Supports Next Gen Media and Technology Program for Underserved Youth from Across the Bay Area


SAN FRANCISCO, August 21, 2017 — AT&T made a $50,000 contribution to Bay Area Video Coalition (BAVC) to support its youth media and technology program, Next Gen. The after school program provides underserved youth with creative, technical and soft-skill development to expose and help prepare young creators for careers in video, animation, audio music and game design. The contribution is part of AT&T Aspire, the company’s signature philanthropic initiative and financial commitment of $400 million since 2008 to drive innovation in education and promote student success in school and beyond.

“The opportunity gap is not only about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), it’s also about the arts and creative industries,” said Ken McNeely, President, AT&T California. “AT&T is proud to support the Bay Area Video Coalition to help empower diverse and talented young people in our region to further their education and careers in media production.”

AT&T’s contribution helps BAVC serve more than 100 youth annually in its intensive, 10-month Next Gen after school program that provides technology skill development, as well as exposure to creative industries, career options and colleges. Students participating in the program also gain exposure to award-winning filmmakers and creative-industry professionals, while earning up to three college credits and gaining paid work experience.

“With support from AT&T, BAVC is helping teach young people how to make media, not just consume it,” said Jeremy O’Neal, Interim Executive Director, Bay Area Video Coalition. “As traditional creative jobs continue to change rapidly, BVAC is preparing the next generation of media makers for what lies ahead.”

AT&T announced the contribution during a BAVC Youth Screening at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco on Saturday, August 19, 2017. During the event, young filmmakers unveiled their works about community and coming of age issues including immigration, gentrification and lyrical exploration of racism.

Los Angeles, July 17, 2017 — AT&T* and Impact Teen Drivers announced the winners of the “Create Real Impact: It Can Wait Video Challenge.” The challenge aimed to help encourage safe summer driving during the “100 deadliest days for teen drivers[i]” by inviting California teens to create an original Public Service Announcement (PSA) including a first responder and a message from AT&T’s IT CAN WAIT public education campaign.

The winning entries were on display Friday, July 14in the IT CAN WAIT booth at AT&T SHAPE, a tech and entertainment expo, and include:

Grand Prize:An Angel’s Advice” by Omkar Hanamsagar of Cerritos, California. Hanamsagar will receive a $500 educational award.

 Honorable Mention: “Some Reminders are more Important than Others” by Nolan Langford of Corona, California. Langford will receive a $50 educational award.

“AT&T congratulates our contest winners and thanks all the California students and first responders who are helping to educate their peers and make our roads and communities safe” said Ken McNeely, president, AT&T California. “No text, email or social media post is worth a life. AT&T reminds everyone that when you are behind the wheel of a car, It Can – ALL – Wait.”

Created in collaboration with Impact Teen Drivers, the “Create Real Impact: It Can Wait Video Challenge” was inspired by IT CAN WAIT and AT&T’s commitment as a leading provider of highly secure mobile, IP-based solutions, to support first responders and public safety efforts in California and across the country. The challenge was also part of Impact Teen Drivers “Create Real Impact” initiative, which empowers youth to share ideas to drive change.

“Car crashes are the #1 killer of teens, and the summer months are an especially dangerous time for young people on the road” said Dr. Kelly Browning, Ph.D. Executive Director, Impact Teen Drivers. “We congratulate the students who took time out of their summer vacation to help educate their peers about reckless and distracted driving. We applaud AT&T and first responders across California for supporting this educational video challenge.”

More information on the “Create Real Impact: It Can Wait Video Challenge” and more video entries are available for viewing at www.createrealimpact.com.

IT CAN WAIT is a national movement urging drivers to keep their eyes on the road, not on their phones—distracted driving is never OK. The campaign began with a focus on not texting and driving. It has now expanded to the broader dangers of smartphone use behind the wheel.  Since its launch in 2010, the campaign has helped grow awareness of the dangers of smartphone distracted driving and inspired more than 15 million pledges to not drive distracted. To learn more, visit ItCanWait.com.

Impact Teen Drivers was created through the collaborative efforts of the California Association of Highway Patrolmen, the California Teachers Association, and California Casualty to provide education among teens, parents, and communities about the dangers of reckless and distracted driving.

AT&T California Release: June 1, 2017

AT&T and Impact Teen Drivers Announce Safe Summer Driving Video Challenge during “100 Deadliest Days for Teen Drivers”

Challenge Calls on California Teens to Share Ideas to Help Prevent Reckless and Distracted Driving; Highlights AT&T’s Commitment to Public Safety in California

June 1, 2017 — AT&T* and Impact Teen Drivers have teamed up to help make California roads and communities safe this summer through the “Create Real Impact: It Can Wait Video Challenge.” The Challenge invites teens across California to create an original Public Service Announcement (PSA) to educate their community about the dangers of reckless and distracted driving and to encourage safe driving habits during the “100 deadliest days for teen drivers,” according to the National Safety Council.[i]

“AT&T wants every young person to have a safe and fulfilling summer,” said Ken McNeely, president, AT&T California. “Together with Impact Teen Drivers, we are highlighting the importance of safe driving and public safety with AT&T’s IT CAN WAIT campaign, a national movement urging drivers to keep their eyes on the road, not on their phones.”

First responders play a vital role in helping to keep California communities safe and are often the first on the scene following a traffic collision. To recognize the contributions of first responders, teens are encouraged to include a first responder, as well as a message from AT&T’s IT CAN WAIT campaign, to win prizes. Prizes include a $500 education award and a $1,500 education award plus a trip to Warner Bros. Studios in Los Angeles to attend and be recognized at AT&T SHAPE, a Tech and Entertainment Expo, July 14-15, 2017.**

“Car crashes are the #1 killer of teens, and summer is a notoriously dangerous time for young drivers on the road,” said Dr. Kelly Browning, Ph.D. Executive Director, Impact Teen Drivers. “We are pleased to join AT&T in creating this opportunity for teens to create a real impact in their communities, using the power of video, to share their ideas and solutions to help end reckless and distracted driving.”

“Create Real Impact: It Can Wait Video Challenge” submissions will be accepted until June 27, 2017. The public can vote for their favorite video June 23– 27, 2017. Complete contest rules and guidelines are available at www.createrealimpact.com. More information on It Can Wait is available at www.ItCanWait.com.

“At AT&T, we know that no connection is more important than one that can save a life, and the ‘Create Real Impact: It Can Wait Video Challenge’ is part of AT&T’s commitment, as a leading provider of highly secure mobile, IP-based solutions, to support first responders and public safety efforts in California and across the country,” McNeely added.

AT&T California Release: Santa Rosa: May 26, 2017

AT&T Invests Nearly $80 Million Over 3-Year Period to Enhance Local Networks in Santa Rosa and Petaluma, CA

SANTA ROSA, Calif., May 26, 2017 -- At AT&T1, we've invested nearly $80 million in our Santa Rosa and Petaluma wireless and wired networks during 2014-2016. These investments enhance reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and businesses. They also improve critical services that support public safety and first responders.

AT&T completed 1,459 LTE capacity upgrades, 45 LTE overlays, and 23 new cell sites throughout Northern California in 2016, boosting network capacity and new wireless high-speed internet connections. The AT&T LTE network covers more than 400 million people in North America."We know that Californians demand a world-class communications network, and we're committed to maintaining and growing our wired and wireless networks to provide our customers with the fast, reliable, highly secure connectivity they expect, in every corner of the state," said Ken McNeely, president of AT&T California. "We're proud that our continued investment across California is driving innovation and opening up new possibilities for consumers and entrepreneurs."

"We know that having a robust communications network helps our manufacturing, green technology, agriculture and tourism sectors thrive," said Ben Stone, Executive Director of the Sonoma County Economic Development Board. "AT&T's continued investment in our community, especially launching fiber internet right here in Santa Rosa, is really helping our small businesses grow."

The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) recently chose AT&T to build a nationwide public safety broadband network. The network will be dedicated to America's police, firefighters and EMS personnel. Should California opt-in to the FirstNet network, we will build upon our current and planned investments with a dedicated focus on the state's first responders.

And we would expect to make a significant investment to upgrade and maintain California's FirstNet network over the next 25 years, bringing your first responders the coverage, value and experience they expect.

For the third year in a row, FORTUNE magazine recognized AT&T as the Most Admired Telecommunications Company in the world in 2017. We also placed No. 37 among the Top 50 World's Most Admired companies.

AT&T is the only communications company on the list. We ranked No. 1 in all 9 attributes. This included innovation, financial soundness and quality of products/services.

We have the largest fiber network within our 21-state wireline footprint.2 We also now market a 1 gigabit connection3 on our 100% fiber network to 4.6 million locations across 52 major metro areas. We plan to reach at least 75 major metros overall. We expect to add 2 million locations in 2017, and we plan to reach at least 12.5 million locations by mid-2019.

We have an extensive Wi-Fi network with more than 40,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots at popular restaurants, hotels, bookstores and retailers. And we provide access to Wi-Fi at more 1 million locations around the world. Most AT&T smartphone customers and home internet customers get access to our national Wi-Fi network4 at no added cost.
