Investing in a More Efficient Network

A better network for a better environment

We’re transitioning the AT&T network to be smarter, more powerful, and more efficient.

This modern, internet-based network delivers better services while helping to increase energy and carbon savings. For example, AT&T estimates IP phone service is over 90% more energy efficient than traditional phone service.1
