AT&T Chosen by Oldham County to Deliver Multi-Gig Fiber
This expanded fiber network will be the fastest among major providers1 and will offer symmetrical speeds of up to 5-Gigs on downloads and uploads. The faster speeds and increased bandwidth mean customers can connect multiple devices, stream multiple entertainment sources, quickly upload content to social media and experience ultra-low lag for pro-level gaming – all at the same time.
Extensive planning and engineering work is already underway, and AT&T expects to start offering services associated with this project in portions of the county by next year.

Affordable internet service is available for low-income households as part of AT&T’s commitment to help close the digital divide. Access from AT&T offers low-cost broadband options, including free internet for eligible households when combined with federal benefits from the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).
About AT&T in Kentucky
AT&T customers and FirstNet® subscribers in Kentucky got a big boost in wireless connectivity and fiber access last year. In 2021, AT&T completed nearly 200 wireless network enhancements in Kentucky, including adding nearly 50 new macro and more than 130 small cell sites. AT&T also made fiber available in more than 30,000 new locations in Kentucky in 2021. These network improvements will enhance the state’s broadband coverage and help give residents, businesses and first responders faster, more reliable service.
From 2018 to 2020, we expanded coverage and improved connectivity in more communities by investing more than $800 million in our wireless and wireline networks in Kentucky. This investment boosts reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and their businesses.
