Any way you look at it, the numbers add up to great connectivity news for Boonville, in Southwest Indiana.
The city’s Mayor, Council and Board of Works have just approved a plan to use a large portion of its American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to work with AT&T on a transformative broadband project.
- Once the contract and funding are finalized, this $4.4 million project will result in more than 4,000 Boonville businesses and residents having access to AT&T’s state-of-the-art fiber network.
- AT&T Fiber offers symmetrical speeds of up to 5-Gigs on downloads and uploads. With it, you can connect multiple devices, stream multiple entertainment sources, quickly upload content to social media and experience ultra-low lag for pro-level gaming – all at the same time.
- The network is expected to be complete in 18 months after a final agreement has been signed.
Boonville’s plan to collaborate with AT&T to help close the digital divide comes soon after one of its neighbors to the west, Vanderburgh County, also decided to utilize its ARPA funds to bring more AT&T Fiber there.
