“We started to broaden it so now we were going to cover everything and wire the whole state, and while that’s admirable, if you try to be everything to everybody, you end up being nothing to anybody.”

Excerpt from comments made this week by Kentucky Governor Matt Bevlin regarding “Kentucky Wired”, an initiative begun under his predecessor to build state-owned broadband networks in unserved areas throughout the state. Bevin told attendees at the “Shaping Our Appalachian Region” summit that he believes the project should be scaled back to target limited regions that lack Internet access.
