In a strategic move, AT&T has invested a substantial $70 million in Vanderburgh County, ensuring comprehensive access to cutting-edge fiber optics and high-speed internet across the entire region.
This pivotal public-private collaboration addresses the prevalent “digital divide,” a critical issue exacerbated in areas lacking high-speed internet. The impact is profound – the Evansville Region is poised for advancements in rural education, transformative innovation within the agricultural sector, and an overall enhancement in the quality of life for residents in rural Indiana.
This substantial investment is not just about connectivity; it’s a strategic initiative fostering economic development, technological progress, and improved societal well-being. A commendable effort by AT&T and Vanderburgh County, setting a new standard for regional digital infrastructure.
