Connect Kentucky debate fires up

Connect Kentucky debate fires up

Yesterday, FierceTelecom linked to a story at the site Public Knowledge that took aim at public broadband project Connect Kentucky, the model for the current national effort Connected Nation, for what it alleged was an inaccurate broadband success rate and supposedly hidden ties to a former Bell company (BellSouth, now AT&T). The posting on our site already has generated two intriguing responses. The two well-organized, persuasive comment postings come from Robert Atkinson, president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, and Brian Mefford, CEO of Connected Nation, and both are reprints of postings that also can be found on the websites of those agencies.

The hot debate behind this story continues to develop, so stay tuned.
