Granite and AT&T extend multi-year contract

Granite Telecommunications, LLC, a provider of communications solutions to businesses and governmental agencies, has announced an extended Local Wholesale Complete (LWC) agreement with AT&T through 2020, the company said.

The extension preserves Granite´s access to AT&T´s traditional copper network for voice services for a footprint that covers 40% of business locations in the United States.

The LWC Extension clarifies the continued availability for the foreseeable future of the network that many businesses and governmental agencies continue to choose for local and long distance voice services, back-up lines and many other mission-critical applications.

Granite has also parlayed relationships begun with traditional voice service to demonstrate Granite´s ability to deliver similar successes with next generation communications products, including broadband, Internet access, wireless, SD WAN and other managed solutions — all of which are growing rapidly for Granite.

In November, Granite announced that it had surpassed its 2017 fiscal goal of annualized revenues of USD 1.35 billion, the company´s seventh straight year of USD 100 million or more in annualized revenue growth. Earlier in 2017, Granite announced it was selected as one of just nine services providers to be eligible to supply USD 50 billion of next generation voice and data products to governmental agencies for the next fifteen years.

Granite provides voice, data and other related communications products and services to multi-location businesses and governmental agencies throughout the United States and Canada. Granite furnishes services to more than two-thirds of the Fortune 100 companies in the United States, and 1.5 million voice and data lines under management. Granite employs over 1,800 people at the company´s headquarters in Quincy, MA, and offices in Atlanta, GA, Chicago, IL, Dallas, TX, New York, NY, Orlando, FL, Philadelphia, PA, Providence, RI and West Palm Beach, FL.
