Several public and private organizations are teaming up to address the county’s broadband Internet situation.
Knox county leaders along with the Knox County Development Corporation (KCDC) announced the reorganization of the Rural Broadband Task Force.
The task force will focus on evaluating current broadband coverage throughout the county and developing solutions for quicker buildout of the infrastructure.
According to the KCDC, the group is planning a countywide assessment of broadband coverage.
From there, the group will identify state and federal programs to assist, recommend policies and initiatives, and promote a “broadband ready” community.
