The Kentucky Community and Technical College (KCTCS) will play an integral role in Kentucky Wired, the new program to expand broadband access and speed throughout the state. KCTCS colleges, including five in eastern Kentucky’s Shaping Our Appalachian Region (SOAR) area, have been designated Community Anchor Institutions and will serve as distribution hubs for connectivity with new buildings to house fiber optic cable built on their properties. This makes KCTCS colleges a priority location for creating improved coverage in communities throughout the commonwealth.
