Conexon Connect has been selected by Kenergy to deliver high-speed fiber Internet access across rural Kentucky.

The co-operative is partnering with Connect to launch and deploy a near 7,200-mile fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network, representing Conexon Connect’s first partnership in the state of Kentucky.

The Connect network, powered by Kenergy, will deliver world-class Internet service to homes and businesses served by Kenergy with the goal of expanding fiber broadband access to all of Kenergy’s 49,000 members.

“The start of this project marks a new stage for Conexon Connect as we bring fiber Internet to rural areas of Kentucky for the first time. We are very excited to work closely with the Kenergy team to make this possible for co-op members,” said Randy Klindt, Conexon Founding Partner and Conexon Connect CEO.

“The partnership shows the dedication of both organizations to improving the lives of individuals living in rural areas.”

Kenergy’s near US$150 million network is expected to be completed within three years. The fiber-optic network will offer members access to symmetrical (same upload and download speeds) gigabit Internet.

Additionally, it will provide a reliable, clear phone service and enable the future benefits of smart grid capabilities to the electrical infrastructure, including improved power outage response times, better load balancing and more efficient electricity delivery.
