As a long-time technology leader in Southern and Eastern Kentucky, The Center for Rural Development is proud to be a partner of the Kentucky Wired I-Way broadband network.

An Introduction to Broadband Planning – How to Build Stakeholder Involvement in Your Region (TENTATIVE)
Tuesday, Nov. 24 (Time to Be Determined)

From commerce, education, healthcare, and government services, the demand for more advanced, reliable, and affordable broadband is challenging local communities to develop effective strategies for connecting their citizens, businesses, and institutions.

This webinar will provide an introduction to broadband planning, and will cover among other aspects: how to identify public sector, businesses, industrial and other organizational resources and to build stakeholder involvement in your region.

To help communities and providers prepare, the Finance and Administration Cabinet has contracted with CTC Technology and Energy to offer a series of free webinars. CTC has also created guidebooks and other materials that you can download from  We encourage you to participate in as many of the webinars as possible.

The KentuckyWired infrastructure project is unlike any other seen in Kentucky in the last 50 years. Broadband, now considered an essential utility service, will leapfrog Kentucky’s dismal connectivity and slow speeds to some of the fastest and highest capacity service in the U.S. – all with the potential to lower consumer costs and improve cell phone coverage as well. Get your community ready!
