1906 - Bobby Batugo, World Champion Mixologist in the 1970s, born in The Philippines [story]


internetwebcyberAT&T has launched ultra-fast internet service in additional cities in Los Angeles County, including in parts of Arcadia, Pasadena, Santa Clarita and surrounding areas.

“This announcement from AT&T is welcome news for our community,” said Holly Schroeder, president & CEO of the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation. “Connectivity is essential to growing our economy and maintaining our high quality of life. The Santa Clarita Valley is growing as a tech center, and increased access to high-speed internet is vital for our businesses to be competitive in the global marketplace.”

They’re offering a 1 gigabit connection to Los Angeles County homes, apartments and small business locations on our 100% fiber network powered by AT&T Fiber.

Their fastest internet speed, AT&T Internet 1000, is now available at over 130 multifamily area properties, such as The Paseos at Magnolia and Palisades. We previously announced ultra-fast internet speeds available in parts of Anaheim, Arcadia, Corona, Eastvale, Fontana, Glendale, Irvine, Los Angeles, Orange County, Palmdale and Riverside and surrounding communities.

Today, they also announced that the service is available in part of Orange County, including parts of Anaheim, Fullerton, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Orange, San Clemente and surrounding areas. In Los Angeles County, they plan to expand access to ultra-fast internet speeds in parts of Alhambra, Culver City and South Gate in the future.

Los Angeles is one of 44 metros nationwide where our ultra-fast internet service is currently available. They plan to reach at least 67 metros with our fastest internet service.

They market our ultra-fast service to over 3 million locations nationwide, of which over 500,000 include apartments and condo units. We’re on track to meet the 12.5 million locations planned by mid-2019.

“AT&T continues to invest in Southern California to bring high-speed internet to our customers,” said Mike Silacci, assistant vice president, AT&T California. “The Greater Los Angeles area is home to technology, entertainment, and a variety of growing industries. AT&T Fiber will help all of business grow and thrive.”
