NEW KNOXVILLE — NKTelco, a leading communications provider in Ohio, announced plans Tuesday to expand their Fiber-To-The-Premise system in Versailles, Ohio.
Residents will have access to a multi-gig redundant network that will provide termination of the fiber from their premises to the NKTelco network. The new network, Flight, will pass more than 1,500 homes and several major medical and manufacturing companies, along with numerous small businesses. With this new Fiber Optic Network, Versailles will become a multi-gig broadband system with everyday low prices on all Flight internet packages.
At completion, the residents and businesses will have access to an online cloud using one of the world’s leading optical solutions on the market today.
