WK&T is receiving national recognition for the quality of services the cooperative provides to local residents. WK&T was awarded the designation of being a “Gig-Capable Provider” by NTCA—The Rural Broadband Association. Being “Gig Certified” denotes that speeds of up to 1 Gbps, or 1,000 Mbps, are available from WK&T.
NTCA is an organization representing nearly 900 independent, community-based telecommunications companies and their interests in national government affairs. WK&T is one of only 23 cooperatives to be initially “Gig-Certified” by NTCA.
“I’m incredibly proud of our employees for all the hard work they’ve done to improve our community and equip our entire service area with a 100 percent, fiber-to-the-home network,” says WK&T CEO Trevor Bonnstetter. “For WK&T to be recognized as a ‘Gig-Capable Provider’ by NTCA is a huge accomplishment, and it helps validate the world-class network that’s available to our members.”
