AT&T Fiber at speeds of up to 5 gigs to help close the digital divide
The City of Boonville, Indiana and AT&T* have signed a $4.4 million contract that will see AT&T build its state-of-the-art fiber network at more than 4,000 locations throughout the city.
“This is an exciting day for our city as our residents will soon have access to AT&T Fiber and the incredible internet speeds it provides,” said Boonville City Mayor Charlie Wyatt. “Connectivity is critical to the success of a community and we are so excited to officially move forward with AT&T on this important project.”
AT&T has extensive experience deploying fiber throughout Indiana. In fact, hundreds of thousands of locations in the state today have access to AT&T Fiber. AT&T is also currently working with neighboring Vanderburgh County to bring AT&T Fiber to unincorporated parts of the province later this year.
“Our AT&T Fiber network is fast and reliable, helping communities like Boonville close the digital divide for their businesses and people,” said Bill Soards, president of AT&T Indiana. “We look forward to continuing to work with Mayor Charlie Wyatt, the City Council and the Board of Works on this connectivity partnership.”
The extensive planning and engineering work for this project will start immediately. The network is expected to be ready within 18 months.
