WK&T recently celebrated a major milestone in its fiber buildout. After starting the project in 2011, WK&T welcomed Fairdealing resident Kris Lovett as the 10,000th member to be connected to fiber. Lovett was awarded a $100 Visa gift card and a $50 gift card to the WK&T Technology Store.
WK&T is entering the final phase of its fiber rollout, with more than 90 percent of the project complete. The fiber network gives members access to blazing-fast Internet speeds, faster than what is currently offered in larger cities like Paducah and Nashville. Fiber also provides high-definition television and crystal-clear telephone service.
Fiber work is ongoing in New Concord, the largest exchange, and will be complete by June 30.
“We don’t know what tomorrow will bring,” says Craig Sullivan, WK&T operations manager. “But we’ve learned that fiber is what needs to be in the ground to prepare for the future. We’re proud to provide fiber to our communities and prepare our members for the new opportunities that will happen because of this network.”
If your home or business is located within WK&T’s service territory and your service has not been converted to the fiber network — even if you only have WK&T phone service — please call 877-954-8748 and schedule an appointment today!
