The Town of Sevastopol announced a project with AT&T* today to expand AT&T Fiber to more than 2,000 customer locations across the town.
“We are excited about this collaboration with AT&T to bring high-speed broadband to the residents of Sevastopol,” said Dan Woelfel, Sevastopol Town Chair. “In today’s digital age, fast connectivity is crucial to everyday life. Bringing AT&T Fiber to Sevastopol is a great step forward in continuing to improve the quality of life for residents, businesses, and visitors in our community. A special thanks to our Communications and Technology Committee, led by Supervisor Jeanne Vogel, for the endless hours they put into researching and finding the right partner for the Town of Sevastopol. We also express our thanks to County Board Supervisor Hugh Zettel and the County of Door Broadband Office for the tireless support provided to the Town.”
Under the $7.4 million public-private project, AT&T will provide fiber services to residential and business addresses in the Town of Sevastopol in Door County.
Extensive planning and engineering work for this project will begin in the first quarter of 2024. The network buildout is expected to be complete within 2 years.
“We’re so appreciative that the Town of Sevastopol has trusted us with this transformative project,” said Robyn Gruner, Director of External Affairs for AT&T Wisconsin. “We believe Wisconsin communities both small and large deserve this kind of fiber connectivity. Working with the Town of Sevastopol and their Communications and Technology Committee has shown how strong public-private collaborations can help bring high-speed broadband and all its benefits to communities affected by the digital divide.”
Plans call for residents and businesses to have access to superfast internet – delivering up to 5-Gig speeds1 with symmetrical upload and download speeds. Consistently fast speeds2 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. AT&T Fiber is also multi-gig capable the day it is installed, which means it can handle the demands of today, and those well into our hyperconnected future.
AT&T is working to roll out AT&T Fiber through public-private collaborations in communities across the country and to further help close the digital divide by encouraging adoption and offering affordable internet solutions. AT&T has extensive experience deploying fiber-optics across Wisconsin, with more than 1.2 million strand-miles of fiber optics in the state. In fact, more than 370,000 locations in the state have access to AT&T Fiber today.
AT&T is committed to connecting more Americans to reliable, high-speed broadband internet in several ways, including expanding and upgrading our network and have a variety of flexible plans available at a great value, such as Access from AT&T which offers speeds up to 100Mbps.3
