Ultra-fast internet speeds are now available to more than 1 million locations across the state of Georgia, including in parts of more than 31 counties and 73 cities.

"As we focus on a goal of becoming the Technology Capital of the East Coast, we know that broadband access and reliability is critically important. Thank you, AT&T, for helping connect Georgia's families to the promise of the 21st century digital economy."
