AT&T says it has "lit up" 32 multi-tenant office buildings across the state of Nevada, making fiber-optic broadband services available to more than 600 business customer locations.

The effort is part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan to expand and enhance the company’s wireless and wireline IP broadband networks, including deploying its fiber-optic network to an additional 1 million business customer locations in its wireline service area by year-end 2015.

Under the fiber to the building (FTTB) program, Nevada businesses in these AT&T "Fiber Ready Buildings" have access to an expanded array of security, network, and cloud-based services, all of which ride on the fiber network. The services are especially beneficial to businesses that regularly handle huge files such as medical images, illustrations, videos, engineering designs, and large presentation decks.

The announcement of the Nevada deployments follows similar trumpeting of new FTTB connections in San Francisco and Louisiana (see "AT&T connects 54 multi-tenant buildings in Louisiana with fiber" and "AT&T fibers 16,000-plus San Francisco businesses").
