AT&T Debuts New Mobility & Entertainment Store in Westlake

Posted by AT&T Ohio Team

New Retail Store Concept Among the First Nationwide

WESTLAKE, Ohio, Feb. 24, 2018 — AT&T* debuted a new 4,200 sq. ft. entertainment-focused retail store in Westlake. The new store in Crocker Park is the first of its type in Ohio and aims to connect customers to the entertainment content they want anytime, anywhere and on any device. Cleveland Cavaliers forward Jeff Green, the Cavs Scream Team and mascot Moondog joined the store opening celebration.

Cleveland Cavaliers Forward Jeff Green (center) joined Westlake Mayor Dennis Clough, State Representative Dave Greenspan, and AT&T Director of External Affairs Nikki Jaworski for the opening of the new AT&T Mobility & Entertainment store in Westlake

The new store reflects the changing ways our customers use their mobile devices for entertainment. In the last year alone, video traffic on our network grew over 75%. In our new store, you can interact with content across many different screens and find the best video, internet and wireless options available from AT&T.

“As technology continues to evolve, we need to make sure Northeast Ohio is evolving to support it,” said State Representative Dave Greenspan. “AT&T’s new store and continued investment helps our community stay competitive and plugged into the latest trends.”

“Westlake is proud of its vibrant businesses and we’re pleased to have AT&T invest in this cutting-edge new store in the heart of our community,” said Westlake Mayor Dennis Clough. “Our city is technology-focused, so we look forward to this being a popular destination for anyone who wants to see the latest in entertainment and technology.”

“The Cavaliers are proud to support our great partner in the community, AT&T, for this exciting new store opening at Crocker Park, sure to be a fan-favorite location,” said Robert Gelman, Senior Director of Global Corporate Partnerships for The Cleveland Cavaliers. “AT&T and The Cavaliers have a shared vision in building technology and progress in Northeast Ohio to deliver experiences and convenience to our fans and consumers.”

Some key features of the new store format are:

  • Entertainment, everywhere. The new stores illustrate the intersection of entertainment and connection. We’ve added more screens to showcase video content as well as its availability across virtually any device with our DIRECTV and DIRECTV NOW services.
  • Smartphones and more. We’ve moved the phones off the walls to the center of the store to make it easier to compare and choose what’s best for you. We also have two focus areas to highlight the most popular smartphone brands and compatible accessories, like VR goggles and smartwatches. We expanded our lineup of accessories, and we’ve made them easier to find.
  • A comfortable experience. We’ve designed these stores for you to have a personal connection with our employees and services. We know selecting a phone, plan and even adding TV and home broadband to your list takes longer than grabbing a shirt off the rack.  We added comfortable areas where you and our employees can work together.

“Today, more than half of our network traffic is video. This new store in Westlake will help local customers connect more seamlessly to the entertainment they love,” said Eric Decker, Director of Sales, AT&T Ohio.

The new store is located at 167 Market Street in Westlake, inside Crocker Park. The hours of operation are: Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. - 9 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Congress needs to establish an 'Internet Bill of Rights'

Posted by Adam Grzybicki

You've heard a lot about net neutrality in the news lately.

I want to share with you AT&T's perspective on the issue.

You should know that AT&T is committed to an open internet. We don't block websites. We don't censor online content. And we don't throttle, discriminate, or degrade network performance based on content. Period.

We favor federal legislation to ensure that there is one set of rules that applies to all internet companies, and includes internet and privacy protections for consumers.

A patchwork of different state rules would confuse consumers, harm competition, and impede innovation and investment.

Congress needs to act to establish an "Internet Bill of Rights" that applies to all internet companies and guarantees neutrality, transparency, openness, non-discrimination and privacy protection for all internet users.

For more information, I wanted you to see the open letter that our Chairman shared recently in major national newspapers.

Sincerely,

Adam A. Grzybicki
President, AT&T Ohio


Consumers Need an Internet Bill of Rights

Government rules for the internet have been debated for nearly as long as the internet has existed, even before a professor coined the term “net neutrality” 15 years ago.

The internet has changed our lives and grown beyond what anyone could have imagined. And it’s done so, for the most part, with very few—but often changing—rules. Regulators under four different presidents have taken four different approaches. Courts have overturned regulatory decisions. Regulators have reversed their predecessors. And because the internet is so critical to everyone, it’s understandably confusing and a bit concerning when you hear the rules have recently changed, yet again.

It is time for Congress to end the debate once and for all, by writing new laws that govern the internet and protect consumers.

Until they do, I want to make clear what you can expect from AT&T.

AT&T is committed to an open internet. We don’t block websites. We don’t censor online content. And we don’t throttle, discriminate, or degrade network performance based on content. Period.

We have publicly committed to these principles for over 10 years. And we will continue to abide by them in providing our customers the open internet experience they have come to expect.

But the commitment of one company is not enough. Congressional action is needed to establish an “Internet Bill of Rights” that applies to all internet companies and guarantees neutrality, transparency, openness, non-discrimination and privacy protection for all internet users.

Legislation would not only ensure consumers’ rights are protected, but it would provide consistent rules of the road for all internet companies across all websites, content, devices and applications. In the very near future, technological advances like self-driving cars, remote surgery and augmented reality will demand even greater performance from the internet. Without predictable rules for how the internet works, it will be difficult to meet the demands of these new technology advances.

That’s why we intend to work with Congress, other internet companies and consumer groups in the coming months to push for an “Internet Bill of Rights” that permanently protects the open internet for all users and encourages continued investment for the next generation of internet innovation.

Randall Stephenson
AT&T Chairman and CEO

Happy Holidays!

Posted by Adam Grzybicki

We are closing out the year just the way we started it: connecting people to opportunity. From connecting first responders to one another, connecting students to academic training, or even connecting Buckeyes to cyber security resources, at its core, this is what all of us at AT&T do every day. I am so proud of what we have accomplished this year in Ohio, and as I look forward to 2018 I am excited for what is to come. But before we get to January, I want to wish all of you, your family and your friends a happy holiday season and a happy New Year!

AT&T Aspire Helping Students Overcome Hurdles to Higher Ed

Posted by AT&T Ohio Team

Quickstart

Just after Thanksgiving, we made an AT&T Aspire contribution to Zane State College (ZSC) for its QuickStart Program, a free, 8-week course designed to help first generation, underserved high school students and GED graduates overcome their reservations about enrolling in college.

QuickStart offers students a risk-free college experience with no financial obligations. Students earn 2 free college credits upon successful completion of the program and have the opportunity to enroll in 2 ZSC courses. The AT&T Aspire contribution will go toward the purchase of classroom tools and electronics for those enrolled in QuickStart.

“This is a great program to reach some of our most vulnerable young people,” said State Rep. Brian Hill, who participated in the announcement of the AT&T Aspire funding. “Educational programs like these ensure that students are prepared for higher education, leading to success in college, careers and life.”

New QuickStart classes begin on Feb. 5, 2018.

Pioneer Pride

Posted by AT&T Ohio Team

Pioneer PrideWithin our company, we’re very familiar — and proud — of the many ways our AT&T Pioneers make a difference in our communities.

However, it’s not often that someone outside the company comes to us and says, “we value their efforts, too. Can we recognize your outstanding volunteers?”

But that’s just what happened in Cleveland recently. City of Cleveland Councilmember Blaine Griffin issued a Resolution of Appreciation for the Northeast Council of the AT&T Pioneers for “their many years of outstanding service, dedication and contributions to the Greater Cleveland community.”

Noting that this Pioneers council encompasses Cleveland, Akron, Canton and Youngstown, the resolution highlighted the Pioneers’ work and contributions to the Ronald McDonald House, the Cleveland Food Bank, Cleveland Kids Book Bank, Project Hope and Make a Wish Foundation, among others.

Thank you to Councilmember Griffin, and all of the councilmembers who signed on to the resolution, for honoring this great organization of AT&T employees and retirees. We share your Buckeye pride!

Don't be One of the 5%

Posted by AT&T Ohio Team

cyberaware

Five percent of consumers in the U.S. text their passwords to their accounts (not a good idea) … 5% of consumers use consecutive letters or numbers for their passwords (you might as well text those passwords to the bad guys in the first place) … 5% of consumers provide their personal or financial info to an email sender without verifying who they are.

The good news is that most Americans know that these are things we should not be doing online if we want to protect ourselves. The challenge is that the crooks are getting smarter, making it harder for consumers to know what to do to protect themselves online. That’s why AT&T just launched att.com/CyberAware.

Bookmark — and regularly visit — this site to learn about the latest tips for protecting yourself and your family, and stay up to date on the latest threats. From ID theft, to malware to robocalls and other concerns, we’ve put the resources all in one place.

Ohio to Enhance Communications for Public Safety with Approved Buildout Plan for First Responder Network

Posted by AT&T Ohio Team

First-of-its-Kind Solution Will Modernize Public Safety Communications across Ohio

Ohio is advancing communications for first responders. FirstNet and AT&T* will deliver a wireless broadband network to the state’s public safety community. FirstNet will bring advanced technologies that will help Ohio’s first responders save lives and protect communities.

The decision to bring FirstNet to Ohio’s public safety community will revolutionize emergency services across the Buckeye State,” said FirstNet CEO Mike Poth. “The network will provide first responders with the speed, reliability and bandwidth they need to take full advantage of new technologies and innovation.

The FirstNet network will drive innovation and create an entire system of modernized devices, apps and tools for first responders.

FirstNet will enhance the way Ohio’s fire, police, EMS and other public safety personnel communicate and share information. Specifically, it will:

arrowqConnect first responder subscribers to the critical information they need in a highly secure manner when handling day-to-day operations, responding to emergencies and supporting large events.

arrowqCreate an efficient communications experience for public safety personnel in agencies and jurisdictions across the state when responding to natural disasters that occur such as severe winter snow and ice storms, tornadoes and flooding.

arrowqEnhance network coverage across Ohio’s diverse landscape, benefitting first responders and residents throughout the state’s rural areas.

arrowqDrive infrastructure investments and create jobs across the state.

arrowqUsher in a new wave of dependable innovations for first responders. This will create an ever-evolving set of life-saving tools for public safety, including public safety apps, specialized devices and Internet of Things technologies. It also carries the potential for future integration with NextGen 9-1-1 networks and Smart Cities’ infrastructure.

FirstNet and AT&T designed Ohio’s network solution with direct input from the state’s public safety community. FirstNet has been meeting with Ohio’s officials and public safety personnel for several years to address their unique communication needs. These include expanding rural coverage beyond what is currently available and offering specialized services and devices at competitive prices.

“As evidenced by Ohio’s thoughtful consideration and decisive action, public safety is a top priority here in the state,” said AT&T Ohio President Adam Grzybicki. “First responders will now have immediate access to FirstNet’s life-saving communications tools, and we’re proud to support them in their mission to serve Ohio’s residents, day in and day out, for the next 25 years.” 

The decision enables FirstNet and AT&T to begin creating an entirely new wireless ecosystem for public safety communications. Ohio’s first responder subscribers will have immediate access to quality of service and priority to voice and data across the existing nationwide AT&T LTE network.

Preemption for primary users over the AT&T LTE network is expected by year-end. This means fire, police, EMS and other public safety workers will have dedicated access to the network when and where they need it – 24/7/365, like their mission.

Fixed Wireless Internet launches in areas of rural Ohio

Posted by AT&T Ohio Team

fixed wirelessAT&T Fixed Wireless Internet is now available in parts of Gallia County for rural homes and small businesses that may have limited or no access to internet.

These locations are included in the locations in Ohio to which AT&T has extended Fixed Wireless Internet as part of its FCC Connect America Fund commitment.

In August 2015, AT&T accepted about $427 million per year in Federal Connect America Fund Phase II (CAFII) support for each of the next 6 years. These funds will be used in 18 states for deploying, maintaining and offering internet access and voice service in FCC-identified census blocks located within AT&T’s traditional exchange areas.

From 2015-2020, AT&T Ohio will have received more than $88 million in CAF II to offer internet access to more than 37,000 mostly rural homes and small businesses that may have limited or no access to internet.

“It’s no secret that ensuring internet access for all of our citizens can be challenging,” said State Rep. Ryan Smith, who joined us in Gallipolis for the Fixed Wireless Internet announcement. “Fortunately, with this news from AT&T, more homes and businesses will be connected, which will benefit job growth, commercial opportunities and education.”

With this initial offering, Fixed Wireless Internet is available today in parts of rural communities throughout Ohio. For more information on Fixed Wireless Internet from AT&T, visit att.com/internet/fixed-wireless.html or call 877-990-0041.
