AT&T has announced that the company is in the process of expanding fiber ultrafast internet into the regions of South Indiana. This new project comes after the launch of an ultrafast internet service in the Louisville Metro region four months ago.
According to AT&T officials, they have already begun adding customers to the fiber network in the New Albany and Jeffersonville regions. AT&T Indiana President Bill Soards stated during a news conference in New Albany that, “Our customers are increasingly interacting with massive amounts of data in new and intensive ways. Increasing the digital infrastructure is an important part of our economic engine and our community’s as well.”
The company has already started providing ultrafast internet service in Louisville, which is 20 times faster than the average cable service. Due to its 1-gigabit speeds, the new service is dubbed the best internet service in the area, serving more than thousands of homes and businesses in the region.
Louisville is one of the 51 metro areas that have AT&T’s fast internet connection along with other internet providers. The company plans to reach a target of providing ultrafast internet to 12.5 million locations across 67 metro areas by the year 2019.
The fiber ultrafast internet starts at around $80 per month and has many TV and HDR packages available. It offers 20 times more speeds than the average internet connection, which is a definitely an immense boon for the customers in streaming and downloading purposes.
The service has already benefitted nearly 4 million customers across the nation and is continuing its growth of subscribers. The residents in Jeffersonville and New Albany can check for access to the connection by visiting the AT&T website or by calling 800-288-2020.
U.S Rep. Trey Hollingsworth spoke further during the news conference, stating that, “I think this investment not only shows how much we can do in partnering with industry that wants to serve customers better but how industry makes a huge difference in the outcomes and lives of individual Americans and Hoosiers every day.”
To add up to the competition, many other services like Google Fiber and Spectrum have also stepped up to expand their services and provide better internet speeds. This has prompted AT&T to increase its footprint nationwide by offering the best internet service at the highest speeds to the customers.
