More About Connected Nation
Connected Nation is a 501(c)3 that began work in 2001 to bring access to vulnerable populations across Kentucky. Seeing a greater need, we soon expanded our work nationally. Leveraging our expertise in building public-private partnerships, Connected Nation helps local communities, state officials, providers, federal agencies, nonprofits, and others work together to create better places to live, work, and raise our families.
Over nearly two decades, our experience with lawmakers, federal and state policymaking, data and research, Geographical Information Systems (GIS), community engagement, the telcomm industry, and Internet Service Providers (ISP) has placed us in the unique position to more effectively create proactive change within both rural and urban communities. That includes through our Connected Community Engagement and Digital Works programs.
