Parts of South Carolina -- including the Charleston, Mount Pleasant and Summerville areas -- have recently seen the launch of AT&T’s ultra-fast internet service.
"Our customers are increasingly interacting with their world in more data-intensive ways," AT&T South Carolina's John Mitchell said. "A growing number of people are streaming content directly from their devices, and interacting with family and friends through live videos. For these reasons, we're bringing our fastest internet speeds to Charleston-area communities."
AT&T plans on expanding its service in the near future to include Goose Creek and North Charleston.
"We are excited that AT&T is bringing high-speed internet to our local business community," Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg said. "Ultra-fast internet speeds will provide our local businesses with the modern technology needed to succeed in our 21st century economy."
Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page also anticipates greater economic opportunities for residents and small businesses.
"AT&T's investment to deliver high-speed internet in rural areas across South Carolina using the latest technologies will help drive innovation and job creation," she said
