AT&T announced that between 2019 and 2023 they invested nearly $500 million in network infrastructure across Connecticut in an attempt to close the digital divide.
It includes:
  • Nearly $110 million in Bridgeport, Stamford and Norwalk.
  • More than $200 million in Hartford, East Hartford and Middletown.
