Scott County, Kentucky, released an RFI in late January 2021 to identify private sector entities interested in collaborating with the County to expand broadband to unserved homes and businesses. While parts of Scott County currently are served, residents in many areas cannot access internet service at broadband speeds. A speed test and survey conducted in the County revealed that residents are eager for expanded access.
This RFI is meant to allow the County to undertake significant steps to build an environment that is conducive to investment and broadband expansion, including a strategic effort to identify and analyze unserved and underserved areas and potential solutions. The County hopes to build on this foundation with a partner or partners to fully meet its connectivity needs.
