Granite Telecommunications, LLC, a provider of communications solutions to businesses and governmental agencies, and AT&T have extended their local wholesale complete (LWC) agreement through 2020. The Granite, AT&T deal will preserve 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 for local and long distance voice services, back-up lines and many other mission-critical applications. Granite also provides broadband, internet access, wireless, SD WAN and other managed solutions, with business and revenue growing across the offerings, the company said.
In November, Granite announced that it had surpassed its 2017 fiscal goal of annualized revenues of $1.35 billion, the company’s seventh straight year of $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 $50 billion of next generation voice and data products to governmental agencies for the next 15 years.
“Businesses and governmental agencies that consolidate services with Granite are going to get the highest quality solutions and support along with very competitive rates. I’m excited about how this deal will help our customers improve their own businesses while Granite and AT&T continue to grow together,” said Rob Hale, Granite president and CEO, in a prepared statement.
Granite furnishes services to more than two-thirds of the Fortune 100 companies in the United States, and has 1.5 million voice and data lines under management, according to a press release.
