“KentuckyWired – the Commonwealth’s Future Broadband Reality”
The Kentucky Broadband Outreach and Strategic Planning Project is managed by KCNA to promote broadband strategic planning and accelerate broadband development across Kentucky. These activities offer communities assistance in successfully leveraging the benefits of high speed, high capacity fiber.
The project supports KentuckyWired/KY I-Way initiative’s goals to prepare “Fiber Ready” communities, businesses and citizens all across the Commonwealth from border to border. A “Fiber Ready” community supports Broadband adoption in a manner that has a positive impact to a community’s socioeconomic status.
With support from the Shaping Our Appalachian Region (SOAR) initiative a Fiber to the Premise (FTTP) – Closing the Digital Divide Pilot will begin in August 2015. As part of the pilot, two Kentucky communities will be selected to develop broadband strategic plans and leverage knowledgeable consultants to become Fiber Ready.
