AT&T to Light Up Small Door County Towns with AT&T Fiber

For the small Wisconsin community of Sevastopol, town leaders have been working on an effort to bring high-speed broadband to community residents and businesses for a couple of years now.

When COVID hit in 2020 – and schools and businesses closed indefinitely – it quickly became clear how important access to high-speed internet would be for this new way of life. But for this Door County town, COVID also exposed the broadband challenges many families faced, as students struggled to do their schoolwork with no access to high-speed internet.

Now post-pandemic, life has returned to normal – and the importance of broadband has never been more apparent.

To close that digital divide for the community, the Town of Sevastopol recently announced a project with AT&T to expand AT&T Fiber to more than 2,000 customer locations across the town.

It’s a transformative project that town leaders, residents and businesses are excited for.

“In today’s digital world, fast connectivity is crucial to everyday life,” said Dan Woelfel, Sevastopol Town Chair. “Bringing AT&T Fiber to Sevastopol is a great step forward in continuing to improve the quality of life for our residents, businesses and visitors.”

Under the $7.4 million public-private project, AT&T will provide fiber services to residential and business addresses throughout the Town of Sevastopol.

Extensive planning and engineering work for this project will begin in the second quarter of 2024. The network buildout is expected to be complete within 2 years.

It’s the second AT&T Fiber project announced in Door County in the past three months. AT&T is also working with the Town of Egg Harbor – a small rural town just 12 miles north – on a public-private collaboration to bring AT&T Fiber to that community. That $8.5 million public-private project will bring AT&T Fiber to more than 2,100 addresses across the Town of Egg Harbor within two years.

“We believe Wisconsin communities both large and small deserve this kind of fiber connectivity,” said Robyn Gruner, Director of External Affairs for AT&T Wisconsin. “Working closely with these Towns in Door County has shown how strong joint public-private efforts can help bring high-speed broadband and all of its benefits to communities affected by the digital divide.”
