Does anyone know when Lincoln county is going to get high speed internet for rural areas.I'm talking about the internet mentioned a while back in the paper. It said everyone in Lincoln county could have high speed internet within a year. ATT won't get off its "duff" and get it to rural areas like other phone companies have and satellite is simply too expensive. I'm hoping we don't have to wait 10 years like we did for city water. We are taxpayers too and we deserve the same services everyone else gets.

I would love to have Wimax express but it isn't available where I live either. I've checked on that several times, even offered to let them build a tower on my property.

Just who are you calling an Ignorant hillbilly?
Just because someone prefers to live in the country doesn't make them ignorant or a hillbilly. We deserve just as much and pay just as many taxes as you or anyone else. Some ignorant hillbilly probably grew the food on your table because "city boy" is probably too ignorant or lazy.

i know your troubles as well young one. For i, too, live in rural lincoln county and cannot get wimax (which sucks) or any other type of high speed. Hughes Net is horrible as well. I have bell south and they don't have high speed wired down my road. it is a very troublesome problem.

I thought they were too. I think everyone deserves to get high speed internet at a reasonable price.
I think Buckwheat needs to get off his behind and start helping Lincoln county instead of just raising taxes and thinking up new things to cost taxpayers money. First thing he needs to do is to stop Trading Post from cheating people who use credit and debit cards. Everyone knows its illegal for a business to charge a customer to use a credit card.They are allowed to give a cash discount but not allowed to charge for the use of a credit card. In reality its the same thing but the wording is different.The fee the business pays for accepting the credit cards is something they accept when they agree to take the card.

"homeworker" I agree. I live less than a mile from the high school and I can't get anything. I have Dish and had a satellite company come out to give me Internet but couldn't get a signal becuase of the trees around out property!! I think we should boycott AT&T because their prices are to high and we get no service worth having. All I can get is dial up!!

City-boy makes a point. Rednecks is the reason why there's not alot of ISP's in Lincoln Co. They would rather have fields of cows then internet lines.

The offer in the paper to provide Broadband for every resident in the county is just an attention grabber for the new company that is/was trying to start in Lincoln County. We have turned down customers that are 1-2 miles from the nearest tower. This is due to trees/foliage. It would be awesome to be able to provide wireless Broadband for all of L.C. but there would have to erect many towers to provide that. We have went to the fiscal court in April 2008 with a plan to provide Broadband in the Mason Gap area, asking for help with this proposal, we were denied from Buckwheat and Terry Wilcher. We had a land owner in Mason Gap call us up and provide land on a high area to install a tower for wireless Broadband. But Buckwheat want $1700 for a tower erection fee for it and other towers that are planned in the county. We have erected a tower in Mercer County. We have talked to John Trizler the Judge Exec. there, he told me he would like to see us expand more in Mercer County. I can't get any type of appreciation from Buckwheat about our business and what we have to offer. Buckwheat is more worried about his pockets more that what he is on education and community. We are currently working on expanding our dead zone in Crab Orchard. After that I don't think that we'll be expanding any more in Lincoln County for as long as Buckwheat and Terry Wilcher is here. That's why I tell everyone that we're more welcome outside of Lincoln County. Sad... Also I have talked to Shane New with BGADD, he had talked to Buckwheat about helping WiMAX Express to expand in the county, obviously there is no interest on Buckwheats part. Sometimes I wonder if Buckwheat is getting his pockets filled. I'm sorry Lincoln County, but we're working on Crab Orchard at this time, and then we'll see what happens the next election year.

Sorry Steve, you and the other guy are both modern day snake oil salesmen. Anybody in the county who can get a phone line can get direct dsl and have higher banwith for about the same price. WiFi is not the best way to provide internet access to rural areas in our county right now and I think you know it. What you wanted to do was no more than trying to get a loan from our county to start your buisness. Next time go to the bank instead of our county government.

Geek, if you read about that in the paper, that is KYWiMAX who is looking for the loan from the county. If you read the paper a week after the request from KYWiMAX (Digital on Demand out of Danville) you see that our name wasn't mentioned but I think we were mentioned as a "local cable/satellite TV provider" I'm guessing due to us not being approved. We were nly asking to have the tower erection fees either waved or reduced, because the towers that we install will not support cellular, light duty. It would have been hard for us to re-coop those fees. Digital on Demand pulled the same stunt for Washington County and they went for it. So Greg Ballard thought that he could do the same for Lincoln county. We are WiMAX Express out of Stanford and not KYWiMAX out of Danville(Digital on Demand) we are not the snake. You can see that on the bottom of our website. www.wimaxexpress.com I Hope this clearifies the the misunderstanding geek.
