The Bourbon County Fiscal Court, in partnership with the Geo Partners LLC is pleased to announce a crowdsourcing project covering all of Bourbon County. This broadband speed testing initiative is being conducted by GEO Partners, LLC. This test should provide the most comprehensive, accurate collection of actual broadband speeds ever conducted in Bourbon County.
The speed test will result in statistically valid data and mapping. The Bourbon County Fiscal Court will use this information to explore options to support a future broadband expansion project. With this information, we have the potential to seek grant funding from the FCC, USDA or the Federal Cares Grant program.
Our goal is to conduct speed tests from locations all over Bourbon County. We need all citizens on every road, every street and every neighborhood to participate so that we can have data that truly shows us where we have broadband, and where it is lacking. Once we have the accurate data we can use it on grant applications.
The Bourbon County Fiscal Court recognizes that high-speed quality broadband is a critical utility to economic development, education, business, and virtual healthcare. The Fiscal Court is grateful for the partnership with GEO Partners on this project. With questions, contact Bourbon County Judge Executive Michael R. Williams by email at: email@example.com or Christina Smith, County Judge Executive’s office by phone 859-987-2139.
