AT&T has announced its intent to bring fiber internet service to Mesa, a city in Maricopa County in the US state of Arizona.

The company is set to offer speeds of up to 5 Gigs to over 100,000 homes in and around the Mesa area. The high-speed broadband service is expected to be available to local Mesa residents in 2023.

The move will facilitate better access to education, jobs, healthcare, and more for one of the largest and fastest growing cities in America, the company claims.

"Fiber is hands-down the best technology to deliver high-speed broadband, and this expansion is allowing AT&T to aggressively roll out service to the Mesa area," said John Stankey, chief executive officer of AT&T. 

"Our long-term goal is to provide fiber to as many customers as we can, and this is just one of many steps we're taking to achieve that goal," added Stankey.  

The announcement follows Corning Inc.'s recent investment in a new optical cable manufacturing facility in Mesa, Arizona. The company's position as AT&T's largest fiber manufacturer sweetens the deal for Arizona. 

"In an increasingly virtual world, access to high-speed internet is a key to success for individuals, families and business owners," said John Giles, Mayor of Mesa. 

"We welcome AT&T to Mesa as their team delivers fiber connectivity, ultimately creating better access to education, jobs and healthcare for our great city."
