We’re hard at work in Ohio, focused on helping to close the digital divide and improve connectivity. As we continue to expand internet access and affordability, our hard work is paying off in communities across the state including in Lancaster, about 30 miles southeast of Columbus.
I recently joined Lancaster Mayor David Sheffler, Lancaster/Fairfield County Chamber of Commerce President Travis Markwood, and Lancaster City School District Superintendent Nathan Hale to announce new availability of AT&T Fiber to more than 4,600 customer locations in parts of Lancaster.
“Fiber internet connections provide a vital difference for businesses and residents in Lancaster. This type of investment in modern, high-speed infrastructure makes our city even more attractive to new residents and benefits families across our community.” ~ Lancaster Mayor David Scheffler
While we are focused on expanding our fiber footprint, we also are actively working to expand internet affordability through our low-cost internet service, Access from AT&T.1
When eligible households apply the Affordable Connectivity Program’s (ACP) federal benefit of up to $30 per month to their Access from AT&T plan, they can get their internet for free.2
“It has never been more important to our students and to our families to have high-speed connectivity at home. There’s no doubt when a student has good internet access at home it gives them resources they cannot have anywhere else. I tell people, you can be anywhere you want to be with a couple of clicks.” ~ Lancaster City Schools Superintendent Nathan Hale
The AT&T Ohio Construction & Engineering team brought their Mobile Fiber Training Trailer to Lancaster for the announcement, to provide community leaders with a first-hand perspective on the expertise used to bring our fiber investment to their area.
