One of the things I most admire about AT&T is that our history of innovation is a story about people from all walks of life and all types of backgrounds coming together to connect people to their world.
In 1879, the New Orleans Telephonic Exchanged opened for business with a single switchboard manned by one operator. Today, AT&T has more than 3,900 employees in Louisiana working hard to strengthen our communications networks for our customers. From 2014 through 2016, AT&T invested more than $1 billion in its Louisiana wireless and wireline networks. This investment also helps build the advanced networks that will create jobs and fuel economic growth.
In addition to improving our customer's experience, AT&T supports Louisiana by giving back in our communities. For more than 25 years, the AT&T Foundation has been committed to advancing education, strengthening communities and improving lives. From 2014 to 2016, AT&T and its employees contributed more than $4.9 million through corporate, employee and AT&T Foundation giving programs in Louisiana.
We look forward to continuing to invest to deploy the smart and fast broadband networks that enable the innovative technology of the future and create jobs for our state.
