AT&T Corp. is connecting 14 government buildings on Capitol Hill to a newly expanded local fiber network in order to compete for the phone, data, video and broadband business at the Senate, House, General Accounting Office and other locations.

The company doubled the reach of its local infrastructure in the Washington-Baltimore area last fall with the acquisition of a 100-mile regional fiber network.

Chris Rooney, president of AT&T Government Solutions, said the company will begin work to wire the Capitol Hill buildings immediately, with all locations connected by the end of the year. Other government sites may be added later this year.

The government is one of five markets that David Dorman, the new chairman and chief executive officer, has designated as strategic to the company's success, Rooney said.
