As a national effort continues to get more people in rural areas access to high-speed internet service, a local Western Kentucky company is stepping up to help ease the burden for some families.

Kenergy says it is offering free Wi-Fi for the 14-county school districts in its service territory.

“Kenergy recognized that this year has been especially tough for students, teachers, and administrators in our service territory,” Kenergy President and CEO Jeff Hohn said in a press release.

The company says it set up Wi-Fi portal locations in Henderson, Owensboro, Marion, Hawesville, and Hanson.

Students are able to use the free service daily from 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.

Signs are posted for parking to show where the best connectivity locations are.

The Wi-Fi portals are password protected so only area students have access to them. This allows students to have priority when they need to access the portals.

Monday morning, we will see partly sunny skies with temperatures still in the mid 20°s. By the afternoon, we will be warming up into the mid 40°s with cloud coverage increasing. This is due to a cold front expected to traverse the tri-state overnight Monday.
