  • Company receives grants to expand broadband

    Windstream Communications plans to extend its broadband services to rural parts of southern Hardin County and across Kentucky where it was considered cost prohibitive to expand.

    The new service is possible because of about $59.7 million in federal stimulus dollars awarded to the company, said Scott Morris, a spokesman for Windstream.

    The stimulus grant requires a 25 percent match from Windstream which will spend nearly $20 million to fill in gaps in its network where broadband service is unavailable, Morris said.
