AT&T recently launched Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan to expand and enhance its wireless and wireline IP broadband networks. As part of Project VIP, AT&T plans to increase the density of its wireless network by deploying more than 10,000 macro sites, more than 1,000 distributed antenna systems, and more than 40,000 small cells. Through this initiative, we also plan to:

• Expand 4G LTE to cover more than 300 million people by year-end 2014

• Expand the AT&T wired IP network to approximately 57 million customer locations, covering about 75 percent of customer locations in its wired service area by year-end 2015

• Expand the AT&T fiber network to reach 1 million additional business locations by year-end 2015
