AT&T today said it will bring fiber Internet to a few million more homes and businesses by the end of this year. “In 2021, AT&T plans to increase its fiber footprint by an additional 3 million customer locations across more than 90 metro areas,” AT&T said. This would raise AT&T’s fiber deployment to about 18 million homes and businesses.

AT&T provided a list of the 90 metro areas here. The vast majority of them already have AT&T fiber access, as seen in this AT&T fiber map.

This likely means the 3 million new locations will primarily consist of homes and businesses close to AT&T’s existing fiber installations instead of homes and businesses in entirely unserved areas. We asked AT&T for more details on the planned fiber deployment and will update this article if we get more information.
