Kentucky gubernatorial candidate pledges to promote broadband across the state

Kentucky gubernatorial candidate pledges to promote broadband across the state

"Standing in the Bowling Green Public Library Technology Center, the “Digital Depot” branch at the old L&N train station, 6th District Congressman Fletcher said that to reap the advantages from emerging new economy businesses – those that rely heavily on high-tech communication systems to trade in information – Kentucky must make itself an attractive location for those companies."

He picked a good location to give his speech — I think this was one of the locations we routed fiber to in designing Bowling Green Municipal Utilities' fiber network.

Meanwhile, his opponent insists that he's pushing toward the same goal: "Spokeswoman Barbara Hadley Smith says Chandler has proposed incentives for utilities and other providers to develop high-speed service in rural areas."
