AT&T to upgrade parts of its Louisiana plant to fiber after significant damage from Hurricane Ida

25 Oct, 2021

AT&T plans to upgrade parts of its plant in Baton Rouge, Denham Springs, and Zachary, Louisiana to fiber after Hurricane Ida caused significant damage to its copper cables and terminals, resulting in 338,115 customer outages. AT&T “plans to utilize existing Gigabit Passive Optical Network/Fiber-to-the-Premises (GPON/FTTP) systems to migrate all affected customers previously served on copper cables in the affected distribution areas,” said AT&T in a filing with the FCC. 

AT&T plans to deploy fiber to more than 2.5 million new US locations by the end of 2021 and to double its national fiber footprint to 30 million locations by the end of 2025.
