ATT FIBER to have 30 million addresses by end of 2025
Last week, AT&T announced it would ramp capital investments and double its fiber footprint to 30 million customer locations by end-2025.
Stankey hinted the 30 million target could grow as vendor costs improve, demand for connectivity increases and the operator gets “up the learning curve further.” He noted AT&T’s ability to build a vertical service on top of its fiber offer that brings in incremental revenue could open the door to “the next 10 million homes because it’s not just connectivity, it’s something else that goes on top of it. We should expect that this is going to continue to evolve over time.”
In terms of its ability to penetrate the new markets where it is planning to build, Stankey said he “absolutely” believes it will be a share-taker.
