KsFiberNet is pleased to announce that we have completed new fiber deployments for all of our awarded CERG project markets. KsFiberNet is currently offering services to new and prospective customers. These fiber network expansions were made possible by the $2 million in SPARK and CERG dollars that KsFiberNet was awarded last year in the midst of the pandemic.
The Strengthening People and Revitalizing Kansas (SPARK) Taskforce was created to lead the state’s economic recovery from the effects of COVID-19. As a part of their efforts, this taskforce is responsible for the statewide distribution of significant Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding. In addition, the Connectivity Emergency Response Grant (CERG) was created to address the increased need for internet connectivity in Kansas due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
KsFiberNet is committed to bringing connectivity to rural Kansas businesses by providing access to high-speed, fiber-based services.
“High-speed broadband is essential for economic development and quality of work for businesses and furthers KsFiberNet’s commitment to be the state’s premier communications provider,” said Mike Morrissey, Vice President of Operations and Engineering at KsFiberNet. “We are excited to offer businesses in each of these areas access to the benefits of our fiber network now and the future.”
With this expansion, KsFiberNet improves internet connectivity to unserved and underserved areas of Kansas to address the needs of increased digital applications. By continuing to expand our fiber network, KsFiberNet provides our customers and residential service provider partners throughout Kansas with reliable internet access that can connect them to the rest of the world – seamlessly, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
KsFiberNet has deployed new fiber in the following seven CERG markets across eastern Kansas:
Osawatomie, Paola, Spring Hill, Olathe (Miami County)
