Damaged utility lines and shotgun shells with a "NO" symbol.

As dove hunting season is underway, this is an important reminder that damaging utility lines, even if unintentional, is against the law and can carry heavy penalties.

Already this season DUO Broadband has had to repair damaged fiber optic cable from shotgun strikes in our service area. Network outages and the expense of repairs affect all DUO Broadband customers.

Beyond the potential for criminal charges and the disruption of service to you and your neighbors, shooting birds sitting on utility lines is just poor sportsmanship — so please, just don’t.

DUO Broadband brought a bucket truck and personnel to let the kids get an up close and personal view of this piece of machinery. “They just loved seeing the bucket truck up close and learning about how it is used,” said Ginger Stamp, RCPL Children’s Librarian. “I saw many children wearing their DUO County Bucket hats. Little things like that make their day.”

U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development Kentucky State Director Dr. Tom Carew this week announced two projects that will help expand high-speed internet access in parts of rural Kentucky. One project will benefit residents of Cumberland County with fiber optic Internet deployed by DUO Broadband (the other is directed toward Breathitt County). Both projects are being funded through USDA’s ReConnect program and are expected to benefit over 3,300 people.

DUO Broadband will use a $24,963,158 grant to deploy a fiber-to-the-premises network to provide high-speed internet. This network will benefit 897 people, eight businesses and 121 farms in Cumberland County.

Brendan Carr, Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission visited Adair County on Tuesday to see first-hand how DUO Broadband is helping to build out high-speed fiber optic broadband to rural America. Carr said it was “Great to see the progress they’re making.”

The Commissioner reported that the “crew here in Adair County is building out high-speed internet to homes that only have copper DSL for broadband. They’re doing so with help from a 2020 award of $18 million.” As one of the first telecom’s in Kentucky to deploy fiber optic Internet, DUO Broadband was uniquely qualified to be part of this award.
