  16. 16. ATT is Investingin the Future of CommunicationAs part of Project Velocity IP or VIP, we are investing an additional $14 billion in the next three years to expand our advancedwireless and wireline broadband networks and to support future IP data growth and new services. Benefits of this Investment Include: Expanding ATT’s high-speed 4G LTE wireless network to cover 300 million people in the U.S. by year-end 2014, an additional 50 million people over current plans. Providing 99 percent of customer locations in ATT’s 22-state footprint access to high-speed 4G LTE wireless broadband, U-verse or IP DSLAM technology. Offering 1 million additional business customer locations new fiber facilities by 2015. This investment will reach 50 percent of multi-tenant buildings in ATT’s 22-state wireline footprint. Deployment of small cell technology that will increase the density of our existing wireless network. Project VIP Supports New Growth Initiatives Expanding ATT’s 4G LTE network to 300 million people, combined with its leadership in smartphones and data access, provides a large platform for the next wave of growth in mobility, including: ATT Digital Life: A nationwide all IP-based home security and automation service set to launch in 2013 that will let consumers manage their home from virtually any device — smartphone, tablet or PC. Mobile Premise Solutions: This new nationwide service is an alternative for wireline voice service and in the future will include high-speed IP Internet data services. Mobile Wallet: ATT is participating in the ISIS mobile wallet joint venture. Market trials are underway in Austin, Texas and Salt Lake City today.Working with the FCC to Quickly Implement Broadband Networks of the Future Continued investment in 21st century IP networks requires a 21st century regulatory framework. To maximize and promote further investment, the nation must complete its transition away from legacy infrastructure to the IP networks of the future. ATT is stepping up to meet that challenge by asking the FCC to start a new proceeding to consider how best to transition to new IP-based “smart” networks and technologies. This will begin the necessary dialogue to enable ATT and other incumbent telephone companies to bring the benefits of high-speed Internet to more consumers and businesses, spur innovation, enhance economic growth and job creation and further strengthen the economy.Improved Networks are the Foundation forInvestment Accelerated Growth© 2012 ATT Intellectual Property.
