ATT is reportedly abandoning its attempt to stop a Louisville ordinance that helped draw Google Fiber into the city.
In February 2016, ATT sued the local government in Louisville and Jefferson County, Kentucky to stop an ordinance that gives Google Fiber and other ISPs faster access to utility poles.
