The city of Boonville, Indiana and AT&T* have finalized a $4.4 million contract that will result in AT&T building its state-of-the-art fiber 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 provides,” said Mayor Charlie Wyatt, City of Boonville. “Connectivity is crucial to the success of a community and we are so pleased to now officially be moving 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 neighboring 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’s helping communities like Boonville close the digital divide for its businesses and people,” said Bill Soards, president, 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 collaboration.”
Extensive planning and engineering work for this project will begin immediately. The network is expected to be complete in 18 months.
AT&T Fiber is the fastest among major providers and offers symmetrical speeds of up to 5-Gigs on downloads and uploads.1 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.
