Investment rationale

In an increasingly digital society, connectivity and access to internet are essential in order for people to communicate, work from home and get access to education, healthcare and entertainment. AT&T provides such connectivity to both consumers and businesses through its broadband and wireless networks in the US and Mexico. In the U.S., AT&T has a wireless network covering more than 99% of Americans, thus also providing connectivity to the rural and sparsely populated areas of the country. To offer affordable broadband connections to lower-income households and underserved communities, AT&T participates in the federal Affordable Connectivity Program that offers a USD 30-75 discount to households with incomes below USD 30,000 and actively competes for contracts to lay out broadband networks for rural communities.

AT&T also has extensive community and education programs to improve digital literacy among all ages, to enable safe access to the internet and to provide education resources to students that lack connectivity or devices (financing computer rooms at schools, providing devices and affordable internet access). All in all, these activities promote access to the digital society for people from all incomes and locations.
