Corning Inc. is expanding its collaboration with AT&T Inc. to increase fiber network capacity to meet high demand and accelerate 5G deployment.

Corning said it is investing $150 million in optical cable manufacturing in North Carolina, initially adding 200 jobs in Hickory, N.C.

Last week, AT&T said it "continues to deploy fiber across its wired footprint and remains confident in its ability to reach about 2.5 million incremental customer locations passed by the end of 2021."
