Closing the Digital Divide in Rural Indiana with AT&T Fiber

“I will never have to revisit the issue of broadband in unincorporated Vanderburgh County, because the solution that AT&T offered us is complete, it’s future proof, and it’s for virtually everyone.” – Vanderburgh County, Indiana, Commissioner Cheryl Musgrave

Vanderburgh County, Indiana, recently announced a $39 million project with AT&T to build out high-speed fiber broadband to more than 20,000 households and businesses in the county.

This is significant, because right now about one-third of the population of the unincorporated part of the county does not have access to fixed broadband solutions, according to county records. But that is about to change, as AT&T gets closer to launching fiber service in this largely rural area.
