The network will be engineered and managed to provide 1 Gbps symmetrical service with latency well below 100 ms.
Last-mile FTTH facilities will be deployed in all unserved, rural areas of Scott County.
For the project, Spectrum will be able to leverage its pre-existing hub location in Georgetown, Kentucky.
Scott County requested an extension of one year.
The period of performance for the project will be two years. Windstream plans to leverage its existing network infrastructure to deploy future-proof FTTH in Sabine County.
The partnership between Sabine County and Kinetic is a great example of how we can make things better when we work together cooperatively.
Windstream being the primary communications company in the county will make the project build-out happen a lot quicker, he added.
The county will also put American Rescue Plan Act funds into professional services to ensure NTIA guidelines are adhered to.
The remainder of the costs will be provided by Spectrum, the internet service provider in the covered partnership.
Spectrum will provide construction services to build out, own, and maintain the network.
CTC Technology and Energy will be a collaborator and provide grant consultation services.
The Scott County project will bring 412.
I feel like we have hit a Grand Slam for our community.
I am proud of the vision of the Fiscal Court and its commitment to our broadband project.
Fiber to the home broadband connectivity will assure that our entire community has the ability to take advantage of online education, home-based business, and telehealth opportunities.
Broadband will help with the continued growth of economic opportunities for all our citizens.
