Fiscal Court to Phase Out Wi-Fi Hotspots at Fire Stations

With the deployment of the new fiber-to-the-home network by Kenergy and Conexon, Daviess County Fiscal Court will be phasing out the public Wi-Fi hotspots at seven volunteer fire stations.

The hotspots were added in November 2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic to support virtual learning and remote work opportunities.  Locations include: Stanley, St. Joseph, Moseleyville, Utica, Pleasant Ridge, Knottsville, and Yelvington.

At the time, many of the outlying communities in Daviess County did not have access to high-speed internet.  However, the landscape is quickly changing with the installation of the new fiber service, Connect Powered by Kenergy.

Broadband is already available to homes and businesses served by Kenergy’s substations in Utica and Pleasant Ridge, along with Guffie in neighboring McLean County.  As more communities are connected to the service, the Wi-Fi hotspots in those areas will be phased out.

The site at the Utica Fire Department will be the first to go offline later this week.  Daviess County residents are encouraged to sign up for updates on the fiber service at
