AT&T plans to deliver fiber-powered broadband to nine Indiana counties

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 US$13 million project is contingent upon a final contract between the state of Indiana and AT&T.

The plan calls for AT&T to build fiber networks in parts of Bartholomew, Clinton, Grant, Hendricks, Johnson, Lawrence, Montgomery, Morgan and Putnam.

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. Hundreds of thousands of locations in the state currently have access to AT&T Fiber.

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.

Bill Soards, President, AT&T Indiana, said: “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.”
