AT&T Expands High-Speed Internet across Kentucky

LOUISVILLE, KY — AT&T has expanded internet access in communities throughout Kentucky to better serve those in rural and urban areas alike.

Fiber Deployments
AT&T has expanded its AT&T Fiber network to more than 100,000 locations in Louisville and Central Kentucky. Louisville and Central Kentucky are part of 67 metros nationwide where AT&T's ultra-fast internet service is currently available. The company plans to reach at least 82 metros with its fastest internet service. Today, AT&T markets a 1 gigabit connection to over 7 million locations across 67 metros. The company plans to reach at least 12.5 million locations by mid-2019.

"The more than 2,700 men and women who work for AT&T and call Kentucky home, are proud to work with our local, state and federal leadership to provide the connectivity Kentucky's residents and businesses demand," said Hood Harris, president of AT&T Kentucky.

Connect America Fund
AT&T has extended high-speed internet as part of its FCC Connect America Fund commitment to help predominantly rural areas. As a part of that commitment, AT&T began offering high-speed internet to over 440,000 locations across 18 states last year, and will expand that offer to more than 1.1 million locations nationwide by the end of 2020, many getting access to high-speed internet for the first time. In Kentucky, AT&T is committed to extending high-speed internet service to more than 84,000 locations across the Commonwealth over the next several years.

To determine eligibility, interested consumers living in the counties listed above may call toll-free 1-877-990-0041. AT&T will continue making community-specific announcements in Kentucky in the months ahead, providing updates about additional availability as we expand high-speed internet to more locations.

In addition to Kentucky, AT&T has launched this service in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

AT&T Fiber Speed Choices
AT&T's 100 percent fiber network under the AT&T Fiber umbrella brand lets customers choose from a range of internet speeds, all over a fast internet connection. The fiber network is just one of the network technologies the company plans to use to connect customers as a part of AT&T Fiber.

AT&T Internet 1000 is the fastest internet speed tier. It is offered at $70 per month for customers who bundle with another AT&T service on a single bill, or only $80 per month standalone. Either way, equipment is included with a 12-month agreement. Eligible services to bundle with include our DIRECTV or U-verse TV service, as well as AT&T Wireless service. We have single, double and triple play offers to fit each customer's needs.

Combining Fiber and 5G
With fiber at the core of its networks, AT&T plans to use a combination of fiber and 5G to be one of the country's largest high-speed internet providers. The company has publicly committed to deploy fiber to 12.5 million locations by mid 2019. Ultimately, the company plans to extend fast internet to more than 50 million locations, with more than half of those locations seeing near-gig speeds, through 2020 and beyond.

Wireless Deployments
As part of its FCC Connect America Fund commitment, AT&T has deployed high-speed internet service to rural and underserved locations in parts of 51 counties serving more than 37,000 Kentucky locations. For much of this rural deployment, AT&T is using its fixed wireless internet service. Launched in Kentucky in June of 2017, this service delivers an internet connection with download speeds of at least 10 Mbps and upload speeds of at least 1 Mbps to homes and small businesses.

Parts of the following 51 counties in Kentucky are now eligible for this internet service from AT&T:
