Over the past year, one thing has been made certain: connection is crucial.
Even in the absence of traditional gatherings, the power of connectivity was not deterred. We’ve gone to great lengths to stay in touch with the rest of the world – often in unexpected ways – through regular phone calls and video chats, outdoor hangouts, even bringing the silver screen into living rooms to watch movies at home. This dedication underscores AT&T’s values within the company and outside its walls: connectivity is born from collaboration.
As we wrap up the first quarter of the year – and look forward to brighter, better days ahead – I’d like to highlight some of the work we’ve done to keep our businesses, residents and first responders connected, and to help reform national policies to help close connectivity gaps. In addition, you can read more about how we’re celebrating diversity in our company and in our communities.
I welcome your feedback.
We’re Expanding our Network in Pennsylvania
AT&T customers and FirstNet subscribers in communities across Pennsylvania are getting a big boost in wireless connectivity.

Our investment will help customers get the most out of their mobile devices.
“We continue to invest in our network in Pennsylvania so that our customers have a great experience,” said David Kerr, president, AT&T Pennsylvania. “These new sites are one way we can provide better coverage for first responders, businesses, and residents in these communities.”
