AT&T Fiber Project Halfway Complete in Martinsville

For residents of the small Indiana city of Martinsville, the day is getting closer when this rural community will become one of the few 100% fiber connected cities in the state.

AT&T’s project to build a state-of-the-art network and deliver AT&T Fiber to more than 5,000 customers locations across city limits is now halfway complete.

More than 2,500 residential, small business and farm locations in Martinsville now have access to superfast internet speeds through AT&T Fiber. And the company is on track to complete the remaining build by September.

“This truly is a transformative project for our city,” said Martinsville Mayor Kenny Costin. “In today’s digital age, fast connectivity is critical to everyday life. We’re excited that this project is halfway complete, and we look forward to connecting the rest of our community with high-speed broadband through AT&T Fiber this fall.”

The project will help address the digital divide in Martinsville – and make sure residents, small businesses and farmers have access to the reliable high-speed broadband they need to thrive in today’s digital economy.

“We know that connectivity is a bridge to possibility – not only improving our daily lives, but also providing opportunities for success in school and work,” said Bill Soards, President of AT&T Indiana. “But not everyone has access to the opportunities that connectivity brings. Working with the City of Martinsville, we are proud to be bringing AT&T Fiber connectivity and all of its benefits to the community.”

The Martinsville Common Council and Board of Works and Safety approved this AT&T Fiber project in September 2022. A $6.3 million effort between the City of Martinsville and AT&T, the project will provide access to AT&T Fiber to more than 5,000 customer locations by September.

The Martinsville project is just one of 12 joint public-private efforts AT&T has in Indiana. The company recently completed public-private projects for fiber builds in Vanderburgh County and Boonville. In addition to Martinsville, AT&T is also working with Lawrence County and Delaware County on public-private projects to bring AT&T Fiber to those communities. And the company is working with the State of Indiana through the Next Level Connections Broadband Grant Program to build fiber networks in parts of nine counties.
