Welcome

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Office of Broadband Development


The Office of Broadband Development was established in 2022 as the central broadband planning and coordination entity to encourage, foster, develop, and improve broadband within the Commonwealth. The Office aims to improve broadband accessibility for unserved and underserved communities and populations, drive job creation, promote innovation, and expand markets for Kentucky businesses and industries, and serve the needs of Kentucky's agricultural, educational, health care, and public safety systems, governmental operations, and citizens.​​​​​​​

Better Internet Listening Tour

In collaboration with the Education and Labor Cabinet, the Office of Broadband Development is hosting a six-week listening tour to gather stakeholder input and meet planning requirements for the federal Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) program as Kentucky develops a state high-speed internet plan.
