We live in a digital world, where being connected means better schools, better health care, and better jobs. Unfortunately, Kentucky is on the wrong side of the digital divide and it is costing the state both jobs and private investment in wireless infrastructure.
The last time Kentucky updated its telecom laws, the I-Phone didn't even exist. And outdated state laws mean our people - especially in rural areas - will live without the latest wireless networks found in bigger cities.
Other states - like Indiana and Tennessee - have figured this out. Why can't we?
Take action today. Call your state representative and ask them to modernize Kentucky's telecom laws. Pass legislation that protects traditional phone service and allows for the wireless broadband networks of the 21st century. We can do both if we act now.
Call 1-800-372-7181 and tell lawmakers in Frankfort to keep up with the times and vote yes on Senate Bill 88. The time to move Kentucky forward is now!
