Indiana and AT&T collaborate to deliver fiber-powered broadband

The state of Indiana and AT&T* are collaborating on a plan to bring a state-of-the-art fiber network to nearly 6,100 homes, businesses and farms in parts of nine Indiana counties. The $13 million project is contingent upon a final contract between the state of Indiana and AT&T.

Extensive design and engineering work will begin immediately following the execution of a final agreement between AT&T and the state.

“It’s tremendous seeing how our Next Level Connections efforts are helping Hoosier families and business owners obtain access to high-speed, quality broadband,” said Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, who also serves as Indiana’s Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Affairs. “This project would bring fiber-based internet to thousands who couldn’t get it before, and we’re grateful for AT&T’s plans for these communities.”

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 both Vanderburgh County and the City of Boonville to bring AT&T Fiber to those communities through public-private partnerships.

“We have a long history of connecting Hoosiers, and we’re excited about this opportunity to continue to work with the state and these local communities on closing the digital divide,” said Bill Soards, president, AT&T Indiana. “AT&T’s fiber network is fast and reliable, and we look forward to helping build better futures for the businesses and people of Indiana.”

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.
