Knifley resident can't get broadband at home on KY 551
Stuck with slow dial-up, he wants to know solution to getting broadband at his home - two miles north of Windstreams DSL service area
I live in the Knifley community, actually Hwy 551, and while most of it enjoys access to Broadband, a portion of it doesn't.
I have been trying for years with no success, to get it as well as have others in my community. Yet, Windstream states that it is not feasible to give customers the same access to a service that everyone 2 miles down the road enjoys.
I realize it is a business decision as to where and when they put it.
But having it within 2 miles, and being stuck with dial-up is not fun.
Do you think it's fair that people that could get Broadband but yet are told no because it's not feasible, shouldn;t have access to a service that most of the county enjoys?
I am trying to garner support from people that have a voice, and aren't afraid to use it.
If you can help us please call me, and I will give you any info you need. I have distributed and sent in 3 petitions in the past 3 years, with the last one being almost door to door, and it had 40 signatures on it of people that want it.
Most of the people that signed the first two already have it, or should have.
I read Columbia Magazine and Just for a Smile News regularly, and I know you and Ralph aren't afraid to stand up for what you believe in.
Most of the people who want Broadband here are paying Windstream at least $80 dollars a month on average.
If just 40 people took a $30 a month service who would profit in the end? Please help! God bless you.
10600 Knifley RD, Knifley, KY. 42753Thanks for bringing this matter to everyone/s attention. Of course we want to see more and more access to broadband and the internet. If readers have ideas on what will help, please let us know to pass along. If others in the county are stuck with dial-up only, we'd like to hear from you, too. Any information on wireless service which might be available (3G and 4G) might also be useful. We'd like to hear of any ideas of action steps to take to find a solution for this problem. -EW
