Data traffic on AT&T’s mobile network has grown more than 470,000% since 2007. Video traffic increased over 75% in the last year and continues to be the largest driver of this growth, making up more than half of our mobile data traffic.
For new technologies to be widely deployed, mobile networks will need to deliver complex and wide ranging network management capabilities for quality, performance, bandwidth, latency, and coverage. For example, for the self-driving car experiences to meet future customer expectations, it will be critical to quickly communicate with other connected vehicles and objects with high reliability while the vehicle is in motion.
Between 2014 and 2018, AT&T invested more in the U.S. than any other public company — more than $130 billion including capital investment and acquisitions of spectrum and wireless operations. Our wireless network now covers more than 99% of Americans, our fiber network is one of the nation’s largest and we connect more Internet of Things devices than any other provider in North America. Additionally, more than 3 million businesses, from the largest global companies to small businesses, turn to AT&T.
