Indianaâ€™s 2 Ohio River ports get high-speed internet service
JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) â€” Indianaâ€™s two Ohio River ports are now equipped with high-speed internet access intended to lure more business to the sites.
The ports in Jeffersonville, just north of Louisville, Kentucky, and in Mount Vernon in the stateâ€™s far southwestern corner recently gained AT&T fiber-ready certification. They won that status after the company installed high-speed fiber-optics at both ports.
Ports Director Scott Stewart tells the News and Tribune that high-speed internet access is superior to standard internet and will give a boost to the ports.
He says the high-speed access will allow companies housed at the ports to keep up with workloads and partnerships across the globe.Most Read Stories Unlimited Digital Access. $1 for 4 weeks
Clark County Sheriff Jamey Noel says the high-speed fiber optics will also give local first responders a more secure communications system.
