AT&T Reveals Three Fiber Ready Certified Buildings in New Orleans

AT&T has announced the first three buildings to receive the company’s Fiber Ready designation. The three buildings are the Urban League of Greater New Orleans Building, Mid-City Market, and 643 Magazine St.

The tenants of these buildings, such as the coworking space Launch Pad and entrepreneurial hub The Idea Village, now have access to AT&T’s fiber-based high-speed services.

“We are proud to highlight these three buildings as even more areas in Louisiana where AT&T’s fiber infrastructure is in place and ready to help community leaders drive job creation,” said Sonia Perez, State President of AT&T Louisiana.

AT&T recently announced that from 2013 to 2015, they have invested over $1 billion in Louisiana. This follows its three-year capital expenditures for the state of Louisiana that was released last year, revealing the number of new customers, cell sites and more.

The company is also planning to expand the availability of Internet speeds up to 1Gbps to homes, apartments and small businesses throughout Louisiana and several cities throughout the country.

“There is a spirit of growth and restoration here in New Orleans, and we are honored to be a part of it by having our building as one of the first in New Orleans to be AT&T Fiber Ready certified,” said Erika McConduit-Diggs, President and CEO of the Urban League of Greater New Orleans. “With this designation, our economic development leaders can more effectively position New Orleans for site selection by emphasizing the availability of high-speed, fiber-based services.”
