Kentucky Farm Bureau offers nearly 200 free Wi-Fi locations across the state
In a world that now demands video meetings, virtual events and continual email communications Internet connectivity is a must
Kentucky Farm Bureau has activated a free, public Wi-Fi internet signal from all 197 of its locations statewide. KFB’s free Wi-Fi initiative is part of the American Connection Project, a nationwide effort led by Land O’ Lakes to bring attention to the lack of rural broadband availability across the country. The American Farm Bureau Federation is also part of the effort.
“Reliable broadband internet service, especially in the rural parts of our state, is something that far too many Kentuckians still don’t have access to in their homes,” said Mark Haney, Kentucky Farm Bureau president. “In a world that now demands video meetings, virtual events and continual email communications – not to mention the tens of thousands of students who are about to start their new school year from home – internet connectivity is a must. We want to help ease that burden for some of our fellow Kentuckians through this initiative.”
