AT&T is launching ultrafast internet service in certain parts of Louisville metro area. The Telco giant has also announced their plans to introduce ultrafast internet service in more neighborhoods in the near future.
Reports indicate that AT&T subscribers would get a chance to enjoy ultrafast download speeds with the launch of this AT&T service. More details regarding AT&T’s fiber network service will be revealed to the public under a program called AT&T FiberSWM.
AT&T representative, Cathy Lewandowski, guaranteed that the program would disclose details on how many customers will receive the ultrafast internet service, and when will they be able to access the service. Officials further added that the service would be initially available to approximately 80 condominium complexes, apartment, and businesses in Louisville.
A recent news release confirms that AT&T intends “to expand access to ultrafast internet speeds in parts of Jeffersonville and New Albany, Ind., in the future.” It is reported that AT&T is launching their ultrafast internet service in 67 metro areas, and Louisville is one among them.
“We now market our ultrafast service to over 3 million locations, of which over 500,000 include apartments and condo units. In the Louisville area, there are nearly 80 apartments and condo units on our 100 percent fiber network,” AT&T said. The statement further added that the company is “on track to exceed the 12.5 million locations planned by mid-2019.”
One of main reasons why AT&T has launched ultrafast internet service in Louisville is because the competitors Google Fiber and Time Warner Cable are determined to upgrade their internet speed in this area to attract more subscribers to their offerings.
Kent Oyler, president and CEO of Greater Louisville Inc. said, “The announcement that AT&T’s ultra-fast 100 percent fiber Internet is coming to Louisville is exactly the type of investment that will keep Louisville at the forefront, as we look to drive economic development and job creation here in the city.”
Jeffersontown Mayor Bill Dieruf, president of the Jefferson County League of Cities said, “Residents and businesses alike benefit from high-speed connection and the speeds that will be available through this all fiber-optic network will position not only Jeffersontown but, all of Jefferson County, as we continue to drive economic development and job creation in our area.”
