Last Mile Partnership
KentuckyWired is unique in that it is an open access network—meaning local public or private Internet service providers (ISPs), such as a cable or phone company, can tap into the system and run broadband to businesses and homes—referred to as fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) or the last mile. The partnership of these ISPs and the KYW network will create a high speed link between the global Internet and local communities.
