AT&T unveils 2-for-1 deal for business customers as it reaches 1M Fiber locations

The latest expansion extended AT&T's U.S. fiber network another 76,000 route miles, bringing the total to nearly 500,000 miles covered nationwide across 21 states now.

AT&T unloaded news on a number of moving parts in its enterprise portfolio on Wednesday.

Verizon, AT&T shareholders want more details on NSA data access — but don't hold your breath

Shareholders of the two largest U.S. telcos are getting twitchy about U.S. surveillance and the possible complicity by the companies' that they're helping to fund.

First, the nation's second largest mobile provider introduced a new 2-for-1 scheme directed specifically at corporate customers -- both new and existing.

Under the deal, business clients can pick up two smartphones (from a small pool of pre-selected options) for the price of one.

The catch is at least one of these new smartphones must be purchased for a new line and with AT&T's Next installment plan. The other device could be for a new line or simply an upgrade.

AT&T Next effectively replaces the old two-year contract standard with a monthly installment plan for devices and network coverage, with options ranging between 12 and 24 months.

Some of the devices up for grabs with this deal include the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Note 5.

The high-speed networks keeping these devices online and connected rolls into AT&T's second item of the day.

The networking company boasted it has added one million more business customer locations to its growing Fiber network since first launching in 2012.

The latest expansion extended AT&T's U.S. fiber network another 76,000 route miles, bringing the total to nearly 500,000 miles covered nationwide across 21 states now.

Earlier this month, the telecommunications giant unveiled several new hardware products, developer tools and upgrades directed toward connected platforms (specifically, the Internet of Things) at CES in Las Vegas.

AT&T reiterated in a new report at the time that it expects 50 billion "things," or connected apps and hardware, to be linked up and sharing data from smartphones to traffic lights and beyond by 2020.
