AT&T serves up a faster, more secure broadband speed for work from home employees
During a recent interview with FierceTelecom, World Wide Technology's Neil Anderson, senior director of network solutions, estimated that 30% to 40% of the employee workforces would continue to work from home (WFH) once the coronavirus pandemic plays out. With WFH, network broadband performance can be degraded by streaming videos and online gaming by other members of a household.
The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has caused service providers to pivot their resources toward better connectivity and security for the millions of employees that are now working from home. On that note, AT&T Business announced on Thursday that it's offering a new broadband service for residence locations that features symmetrical speeds of 1-Gig.
AT&T is calling the service "AT&T Home Office Connectivity" and its now available across 21 states via the telco's fiber and copper lines. The service includes an internet access line as well as the required equipment that AT&T Business will retain ownership of.
