AT&T Certifies Michigan City Business Park for Fiber

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Michigan City’s Woodruff Business Park recently became the latest spot in the state—and the first in La Porte County—to be certified by AT&T as a “Fiber Ready” location.

With the growing importance of connectivity to employers and businesses of every type, being able to advertise high-speed Internet is a growing advantage for economic development organizations.

“The Fiber Ready program is part of our continuing efforts to drive economic development and investment in the Hoosier state,” said AT&T Indiana President Bill Soards. “Today’s designation means that Woodruff Business Park has been equipped with AT&T’s fiber infrastructure. It’s in place and ready to help local businesses grow.”

In just the last three years, AT&T has invested nearly $2 billion in information infrastructure in Indiana communities across the state.

The Woodruff Business Park is a 100-acre park that was developed in 1999 and features rail access, interstate proximity, in-place utilities and now Fiber Ready certification. Several companies are currently located there but there are multiple shovel-ready sites still available.

“We welcome this opportunity to shine the spotlight on the availability of fiber in this fantastic business park,” said Economic Development Corporation Michigan City Executive Director Clarence Hulse. “Both the community and the facilities within the park will benefit from having advanced technologies like this.”
