AT&T to deliver fiber-powered broadband access to over 20,000 locations

Oldham County announced that AT&T* has been chosen to build its state-of-the-art fiber network that will deliver high-speed internet to more than 20,000 customer locations throughout the county. Upon completion of the project, every home and small business in the county will have access to AT&T Fiber.

“Fiber-optics are essential to delivering a long-term solution for businesses and residents of Oldham County, and AT&T’s experience and ability to operate and maintain these complex networks is critical to developing economic and educational opportunities in the county,” said David Voegele, Oldham County Judge Executive.

AT&T has extensive experience deploying fiber-optics across Kentucky. In fact, more than 300,000 customer locations in the state had access to AT&T Fiber as of the end of 2021. With dozens of employees who call Oldham County home, AT&T has the experience and local knowledge to work quickly and effectively to meet community needs.

“We have a long history of connecting businesses and residents in Oldham County, and we’re already hard at work planning this new expansion of our AT&T fiber network for the people of Oldham County,” said Sonia Perez, president, AT&T Southeast States. “We are proud to work with the county and community leadership to deploy a fast and reliable network that can help build better futures for businesses and residents across the county.”

The approximately $33 million project will extend AT&T’s fiber footprint to more than 20,000 customer locations in the county. AT&T will own and operate the network.

This expanded fiber network will be the fastest among major providers¹ and will offer symmetrical speeds of up to 5-Gigs on downloads and uploads. The faster speeds and increased bandwidth mean customers can connect multiple devices, stream multiple entertainment sources, quickly upload content to social media and experience ultra-low lag for pro-level gaming – all at the same time.

Extensive planning and engineering work is already underway, and AT&T expects to start offering services associated with this project in portions of the county by next year.
