Ultra-Fast Internet Speeds Available to Homes, Apartments and Small Business Locations in Parts of Central Kentucky 

AT&T* is now offering a 1 gigabit connection1 on our 100% fiber network powered by AT&T FiberSM to customer locations in parts of Central Kentucky, including in parts of Georgetown and surrounding communities. 2

“A regular point of discussion in Frankfort is how we can encourage the continued deployment of high-speed internet access, and I believe this shows that those discussions are working, and the private sector is responding,” said Senate Majority Floor Leader Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown. “This is great news for both businesses and families throughout the area.”

“In an increasingly competitive market for job attraction, this is the type of incentive that can help Central Kentucky contend for the best jobs,” said Rep. Phillip Pratt.  “High-speed internet is quickly becoming the backbone of our economy and news of this private investment is most welcome.”

Central Kentucky is one of 62 areas nationwide where our ultra-fast internet service is currently available. We plan to reach at least 75 metros with our fastest internet service.

Today, we market a 1 gigabit connection1 on our 100% fiber network to over 6 million locations across 62 metros. We plan to reach at least 12.5 million locations by mid-2019.

“Our customers are increasingly interacting with their world in more data-intensive ways,” said hood Harris, President, AT&T Kentucky. “A growing number of people are streaming content directly from their devices, and interacting with family and friends through live videos. For these reasons, we’re continuing to expand the availability of our fastest internet speeds to more locations throughout the Commonwealth.”

AT&T Internet 1000, is our fastest internet speed tier on our 100% fiber network. It is offered at $70 per month for customers who bundle with another AT&T service on a single bill, or only $80 per month standalone. Either way, there are no extra monthly fees and equipment is included with a 12-month agreement.3 Customers are also able to add our award-winning DIRECTV or U-verse TV service as well. We have single, double and triple play offers to fit each customer’s needs.

What is AT&T Fiber?

With fiber at the core of our networks we plan to use a combination of fiber and 5G to be one of the country’s largest high-speed internet providers. Ultimately we plan to reach more than 50 million locations, with more than half of those locations seeing near-gig speeds, through 2020 and beyond.
