Rural Digital Opportunity Fund

Broadband Internet is slowly rolling out to rural areas of Knox County! Thanks to the FCC's Rural Digital Opportunity Fund, unserved areas across the US are receiving broadband access for the first time. Just last month, crews were operating on Murray and Sycamore roads in the southern part of our county, and over the coming months more crews will continue to build network infrastructure in our area. See here for more from the FCC!
