Fiber Changes Lives

Fiber-To-The-Home

WK&T operates a 100-percent fiber network. Many telecommunications providers use fiber in their network to connect their equipment in the field, but WK&T has taken the extra step of delivering fiber all the way to the homes and businesses of every customer.

The Benefits of Fiber

  • • Provides faster connection speeds
  • • Is less susceptible to outages caused by weather, vibrations or shock
  • • Increased home value
  • • Allows homeowners to connect more devices simultaneously thanks to increased bandwidth
  • • Offers better security since fiber doesn't radiate signals and is difficult to tap
  • • Is not susceptible to electromagnetic interference from nearby electrical machinery
  • • Provides a private connection that is not shared with other homeowners or businesses
  • • Costs less in the long run, as it is less expensive to maintain and has little downtime
  • • Eliminates the need to build new cable in order to upgrade network performance

Who is WK&T

WK&T is a progressive telecommunications provider. Across its 100% fiber-to-the-home network, WK&T delivers high-speed broadband internet, digital TV, phone and related services to citizens and businesses of West Kentucky and Tennessee.

In 2009, WK&T pursued and was awarded a $123.8 million loan/grant from RUS to construct its fiber-to-the-home network. This transformed the company, enabling it to connect members with the most technologically advanced telecommunications network to meet today's sophisticated broadband needs.
