Update on WK&T's High-Speed Fiber Project
Customers on WK&T's new Flite fiber project can expect internet speeds up to 60 miles per hour. WK&T Sales and Product Manager Michael Lee speaks with Kate Lochte about the fiber construction, how the project began, and what it means for home and business owners in their nine county service area.
WKMS reported that the project had begun back in 2011. In June of 2013, we reported the project as halfway done across their nine-county service area. The buried fiber optic connection is touted as "future-proof," which essentially means that bandwidth can be expanded as technology and resources advance, unlike an older copper network.
