Joint AT&T – County Fiber Project Launches in Oldham

AT&T launches public/private partnership in Oldham County, Kentucky, to serve residents with fiber optic broadband.

Business, state, county, and community leaders joined AT&T to announce the availability of AT&T Fiber as part of a $33 million county-wide network deployment in Oldham County, Kentucky. The announcement followed a roundtable discussion about the importance of bringing reliable, high-speed internet to connect people where they live and work, including rural areas.

Launched last year, this public-private partnership is an example of AT&T’s work with local governments looking to expand broadband access and narrow the digital divide in their communities. It involves building broadband connections to more than 20,000 households and businesses over two years. Upon completion of the project, every home and small business in the county will have access to AT&T Fiber with available speeds up to 5 Gbps.

 “We realized early on that to keep the county in the forefront of technology, we needed to eliminate the digital divide in Oldham, which meant connecting every home and business with high-speed fiber,” said Judge Executive David Voegele. “We chose to partner with AT&T because not only did they have the capability and expertise to do the job, but they share our commitment to connecting the community. To help meet the demands for reliable, high-speed connections today and in the future we’re investing in our fiber network.”

More than 1.8 million strand-miles of fiber optics have been laid in Kentucky, reaching more than 350,000 customer locations. The new fiber network is capable of delivering speeds up to 5 Gbps on both upload and download. The faster speeds and capacity mean customers can now connect to data-intensive online tools and applications, deploy precision agriculture technologies, and access vital education resources from devices connected to the Wi-Fi network in their homes and businesses.
