AT&T to bury fiber-optic lines in bayou parishes

Hurricane Ida

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – AT&T plans to bury its fiber-optic lines in the bayou parishes in and around New Orleans.

The company says this will help prevent extensive damage and outages like what we saw after Hurricane Ida.

AT&T will spend tens of millions of dollars on the project and hopes to finish the project next year, with most of the work completed by the end of December.
