AT&T tops PPI’s list of “Investment Heroes” for third year in a row


In this era of globalization, goods, services, money, people and data all cross national borders with ease.


Indeed,connectedness to the rest of the world is now essential for the data-driven economy to thrive. It follows that our regulatory policies should be synchronized to encourage that connectedness.


So, which companies are betting on America’s future and which companies are investing to ensure that the data-driven economy thrives?


For the third year in a row, AT&T tops theProgressive Policy Institute's Investment Heroesreport with $20.9 billion in domestic capital spending in 2013. Additionally, AT&T is at the top of the new 3-year cumulative capital expenditure list with $60 billion invested in the U.S. from 2011-2013.



AT&T Progressive Policy Institute Investment Heroes report



"Investment generates jobs, greater productivity, and the higher incomes Americans desire," says PPI Chief Economic Strategist Michael Mandel."Companies that invest in the U.S. are creating more opportunities for economic mobility and growth, and our government should implement policies that continue to encourage these companies to invest here at home."


AT&T continues to expand and enhance its network, bringing customers services and products they want. We are excited to see the strength of our efforts and look forward to continued years of investment around the country.
