At AT&T, we’re bringing it all together. We’re helping people connect with advanced mobile services, next-generation TV, high-speed Internet services and smart solutions for businesses. Fast, secure and mobile connectivity – to everything on the Internet, everywhere, at every moment and on every device – is what drives us at AT&T.
Our customers can stay connected from virtually anywhere. It doesn’t matter if they’re driving home from work or headed across the country. Our leading wireless services offer customers the nation's strongest LTE signal* and the nation's most reliable 4G LTE network.** With our recent purchase of two Mexican wireless companies, Iusacell and Nextel Mexico, we’re becoming a leading wireless provider in that country, too.
Customers want video on every screen to enjoy their favorite movies, TV shows, music and sports. We’re setting the standard for delivering video when, where and how customers want it. With our acquisition of DIRECTV, combined with our AT&T U-verse TV service, we’re now the world’s largest pay TV provider. We have nationwide reach in the United States, plus 11 Latin American countries.
We’re also committed to bring high-speed Internet service to more places. Our goal is to cover at least 15 million customer locations across 48 states - most of them in underserved rural areas.
Our AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet service brings customers a wide choice of Internet speeds, depending on their needs. With U-verse with AT&T GigaPowerSM, customers in select markets can download an HD movie in 36 seconds, a TV episode in three seconds and 25 songs in one second. We're planning to grow our 1 gigabit per second service, targeting up to 100 cities across the country.
We provide advanced business services to nearly all of the Fortune 1000, as well as neighborhood businesses around the country. We offer solutions that help businesses in every industry serve their customers better.
We're also connecting cars, machines, devices and more. It's all part of our leadership in what’s called the Internet of Things. We're working with top automakers and technology companies to make our customers' lives easier. You can open your garage door, monitor blood pressure, adjust home temperature, unlock your car, and more from your device. And you can do it on the road or at home.
We’re always looking for new ways to connect you and your world. We’ve received more than 10,000 patents worldwide. The brightest minds in the business are working at our AT&T Labs and Foundry centers to develop technologies, apps, products and services.
We're also improving lives by supporting our local communities. We want to raise high school graduation rates and preparing students for college and careers through our signature education initiative, AT&T Aspire. To date, we have committed $350 million to the program. Our It Can Wait campaign has inspired more than 6 million people to pledge that they will never text and drive.
AT&T is leading the way to the future - for customers, businesses and the industry. We're developing new technologies to make it easier for our customers to stay connected. We envision a world where everything and everyone work together. We envision a world that works for you.
