I am sharing this invitation on behalf of my colleague [and long-time friend] Phil Baughn, now CIO for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Please help COT and its many partners, including the Ky Dept for Libraries and Archives and so many public libraries, community colleges, the Council on Postsecondary Education, the universities and others as they seek to bring and/or improve access to high-speed Internet all over Kentucky. Please share the link everywhere you can — coworkers, patrons, family and friends. Thank you, Enid
The Kentucky Commonwealth Office of Technology (COT) invites you to participate in an important survey on Home Broadband Internet Availability. Through Kentucky at Work, the Commonwealth is implementing various programs funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). ARRA will provide a much-needed, one-time infusion of dollars to promote quality of life through investments in education, health care and public safety; and to make strategic investments now to position Kentucky for the future.
An important element of the program is to ensure that high-speed Internet (broadband) is available to many communities where such service has been lacking. Investment toward establishing affordable broadband services is important for the long-term well being of both households and businesses in our state.
As a first step towards increasing availability of broadband services across the state, we are requesting your input to identify broadband service availability. A survey to gather your input is available online and typically requires 5 minutes to complete.
We thank you for your participation in this important activity that will have long term benefits for our Commonwealth.
Phil Baughn, Chief Information Officer
Commonwealth of Kentucky
