The Need For Speed
Kentucky’s governor hit the nail on the head recently when he said, "There is an increasingly large gap between those who have technology and those who do not. Kentucky remains on the wrong side of this digital divide." Can I get an amen?!
If you’ve ever visited Antioch you know that we’re not exactly an urban church. Though we’re located on a state highway, it is still fairly rural. To give you an idea of how backwoods; cable and high speed internet are not even an option. That has left us quite frustrated as we’ve researched our limited options. At this point, our only option is to pay out the wazoo for a satellite provider and then I’m not all that certain of their reliability.
However, I just caught wind that our governor, Ernie Fletcher, has set forth a plan to make high speed internet available for all Kentuckians by 2007 [if he can stay out of jail]. Just the thought of getting an upgrade sets my feet to dancing.
If you’re a Kentuckian and want more information, visit Connect Kentucky. You can see your county’s progress and even submit a plea for help.
I’m out like dial up!
