MICHIGAN CITY -

AT&T is expanding its fiber connectivity in northern Indiana. The company says its gigabit Internet service is now available in parts of Michigan City.

AT&T says it has previously made the service available in parts of Crown Point, Gary, Hammond, Munster, St. John, Indianapolis and surrounding communities. Plans call for the company to expand the offering to Merrillville in the future.

Economic Development Corp. Michigan City Executive Director Clarence Hulse calls the announcement "tremendous," saying "businesses and citizens are sure to benefit from this investment, because in today's economy, we count on fast Internet services to help us work quicker and smarter." Mayor Ron Meer agrees, saying, "Access to high-speed Internet will help create new jobs, grow small businesses and improve access to educational opportunities."

AT&T says the service is available in 44 metros nationwide, with plans to ultimately reach at least 67 metros. The company says it invested nearly $2 billion in wireless and wired networks in Indiana between 2013 and 2015.

Bottom line, hope is not a plan if you want to sell your business.
