Boonville, Indiana, will provide fiber-powered broadband access to more than 4,000 locations through AT&T
AT&T fiber with speeds up to 5Gb to help bridge the digital divide
The City of Boonville, Indiana and AT&T* have finalized a $4.4 million contract that will see AT&T build its state-of-the-art fiber optic network to 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 offers,” said Mayor Charlie Wyatt, of the Town of Boonville. “Connectivity is critical to the success of a community and we are excited to officially move forward with AT&T on this important project.”
AT&T has extensive experience deploying fiber optics across Indiana. In fact, hundreds of thousands of locations in the state have access to AT&T Fiber today. AT&T is also currently working with Vanderburgh County to bring AT&T Fiber to unincorporated parts of the county later this year.
“Our AT&T Fiber network is fast and reliable, and it helps communities like Boonville bridge the digital divide for its businesses and residents,” said Bill Soards, president of AT&T Indiana. “We look forward to continuing to work with Mayor Charlie Wyatt, City Council and the Task Force on this connectivity collaboration.”
Significant planning and engineering work for this project will begin immediately. The network should be completed in 18 months.
AT&T Fiber is the fastest among major providers and offers symmetrical speeds of up to 5 gigabytes on uploads and downloads.1 Faster speeds and increased bandwidth mean customers can connect multiple devices, stream multiple sources of entertainment, quickly download social media content, and experience ultra-low lag for pro-level gaming, all at the same time.
