“We at AT&T Arkansas applaud city leaders for their successes in the continued growth and vitality of downtown Little Rock, and for their commitment to continuing the work.
We are pleased to be part of downtown and to be a contributor to making Little Rock an even more vibrant and vital city. Our approach is to provide new communications services and technology for business and consumers, to promote broad community access to technology, and to support education through technology.
Whether it’s providing a grant for the hands-on technology center within the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, delivering wireless broadband access at Little Rock Adams Field and in the River Market, or making the investment to deliver Internet Protocol-based video services to city residents – AT&T Arkansas is committed to this city.
AT&T Arkansas has been part of Little Rock for more than 125 years – locally, we trace our business roots back to the city’s very first telephone exchange. Today we serve 102 local exchanges in Arkansans, providing service to more Arkansans than any other provider. In fact, on a typical day we help complete 29 million calls or data transactions for Arkansas customers. No other company has so much daily interaction with the people of Arkansas.
Looking ahead, we are excited by the opportunity to help local companies use technology to grow their business, increase efficiency and improve operations. And for consumers we are working to deliver communications and entertainment services to the “three screens” people value most – their TV, their PC and their wireless phone – in a way that is integrated and consumer-friendly. “
Ed Drilling, President, AT&T Arkansas
