AT&T Ohio. “AT&T is making robust investments locally to make sure that residents can take
full advantage of the latest services and tools, and that businesses have the speed they need to
compete and grow.”

Greater Cincinnati area will help local families and businesses, who are working hard to rebuild
Ohio’s economy,” said State Representative Peter Stautberg. “Advancement in technology is a
critical economic driver for businesses and consumers to remain competitive and to foster
further economic growth.”
