AT&T has announced that the Churchill Technology & Business Park in Avondale, located in Jefferson Parish, has been designated AT&T Fiber Ready.
Churchill provides office space, zoning and permitting support, and a business incubator to a range of tenants, including the Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission (JEDCO). The organization helped bring AT&T Fiber to the area.
“Fiber is a key component to infrastructure preparedness, and the AT&T Fiber Ready designation helps publicize Churchill Technology & Business Park as ready for further advanced development,” said Jerry Bologna, President and CEO of JEDCO.
AT&T believes this advancement will provide a new tool for economic development leaders and others looking for space. The company has invested more than $1 billion in its wired and wireless networks in Louisiana from 2013-2015.
“We can assure companies looking to locate and expand in this area that this development can provide the high-speed connectivity they require to do business globally, right here from Jefferson Parish,” continued Bologna.
