Decatur County Industrial Parks Designated as AT&T Fiber Ready

BAINBRIDGE, GA — As part of AT&T's continuing efforts to drive economic development and investment in Georgia, AT&T and the Development Authority of Bainbridge and Decatur County announced that the Decatur County Industrial Park and Commodore Industrial Park have been certified as being AT&T Fiber Ready.

In today's world, connectivity is vital to employers and businesses of every type. "The high-speed connectivity that is possible through fiber-optic infrastructure is vital for businesses in today's economy, and as we work to attract new employers to the area, this is exactly the kind of tool that our economic development leaders need to emphasize the resources we have here in Bainbridge," said State Senator Dean Burke.

An Economy Based on Smart Policies
There's no such thing as a "low-tech" business today, so economic development leaders must be able to tout the presence of high-speed Internet connectivity. "Our resources in Georgia are extensive, but if potential investors aren't aware of the tech infrastructure in place across the state, then we face the potential of losing many opportunities. The AT&T Fiber Ready designation helps to eliminate those missed opportunities," said Rick McCaskill, executive director of the development authority of Bainbridge and Decatur County. "Georgia's economy is headed in the right direction, in large part because of the leadership of our elected officials. Their continued focus on smart policies and economic development are vital to our work to grow businesses and create jobs in Bainbridge and Decatur County."

With the designation of being AT&T Fiber Ready, local economic development officials can more effectively position their communities for site selection by emphasizing the availability of high-speed, fiber-based services.
