Williamstown Receives $535,000 Broadband Infrastructure Grant From NTIA

Yesterday, my client, the City of Williamstown received news that it has been awarded a $535,000 broadband infrastructure grant from NTIA to deploy a high-speed fiber-to-the-home broadband network to unserved and underserved communities south of its existing network in Corinth, and north of its existing network to areas of Grant and Owen counties in northern Kentucky. The project intends to offer broadband speeds up to 10 Mbps and directly connect the three municipal organizations within the service area – Corinth City Hall, the Corinth Water District, and the Corinth Volunteer Fire Department – free of charge. In addition, the project expects to offer broadband Internet access for local consumers, including approximately 680 households and 20 businesses, and spur economic growth and job creation in the region. The press release from the Department of Commerce can be found at
