Cheatham County Industrial Park earns AT&T Fiber Ready designation

As part of AT&T’s continuing efforts to drive economic development and investment in Tennessee, company representatives, elected officials and members of the Cheatham County Joint Economic and Community Development Board announced on February 26, 2016 that the Cheatham County Industrial Park in Ashland City, Tennessee has been designated as AT&T Fiber Ready. (check out the article in The Tennessean newspaper.)

Not only is this an asset for the few vacant properties in the industrial park, but also exiting businesses in the area benefit from the ready availability of high speed broadband internet access via fiber optics.

The Cheatham County Industrial Park is located on Highway 12 less than 30 minutes from downtown Nashville, Tennessee.
