One of the fastest growing markets in Georgia is Communication Services. Ranked fifth in the nation, with more than 100 companies in this sector, Georgia boasts strong offerings in everything from telecommunications and multimedia services to fiber optics.
Georgia’s telecom industry is anchored by companies like AT&T, EarthLink and Verizon, enhanced by home grown successes like Cbeyond and so many others. Strong and active organizations such as TAG and TAG affiliate groups, such as the Association of Telecom Professionals (ATP) also bode well for the sector. Additionally, Atlanta’s telecom infrastructure is ranked among the top five U.S. markets for total bandwidth and fiber access, and two of the country’s largest fiber routes cross in metro Atlanta.
With virtually every major fiber provider possessing a core interconnection point here, it is easy to see why Atlanta is often referred to as “America’s Most Wired City.” These factors, combined with low power rates, a low cost of doing business, and an incredible quality of life have lured and kept a large variety of Communication Services companies in Georgia.
