“While there is no doubt consumers from across the area will benefit from this new, ultra-fast Internet, the service also reflects the strong confidence employers and businesses have in our community,” said Matt Largen, president and CEO of Williamson Inc. “The hard work of our legislators and local elected officials has been vital in encouraging this type of investment, and I look forward to even more interest from employers as a result of this new service in Franklin.”
State Senator Jack Johnson said, “Consumers and businesses demand these fiber-based, high-speed Internet services, and this type investment in the ultra-fast, residential network is a great selling point for our community. As we continue to work at the state and local levels to improve the business environment in Tennessee, these type investments will make us even more attractive to future investments.”
Franklin Mayor Ken Moore added, “I think the fact that we are one of the first communities in the mid-state to have this new service speaks to the exciting things that are happening here in Franklin. Our community is thriving, and we are attracting the type of services and investments that position us well for continued economic growth and job creation.”
“The billions of dollars AT&T has invested in our wired and wireless high-speed Internet networks is possible in large part because of the smart, pro-investment policies and pro-business pursuits of our state and local leaders,” said Dennis Wagner, director of external and legislative affairs for AT&T in Tennessee. “We are excited to extend the area’s first residential network to offer speeds up to 1 gigabit per second, and we can’t wait to see what people here in Franklin do with those speeds.”
