Boonville, AT&T Planning to Speed Up Broadband Access in City

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.

The numbers?

  • 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.
