WARREN COUNTY, Ky. (WBKO) -- Gigabit internet service will be soon be available to certain homes in Warren County.
NCTC has laid fiber optic lines in Drake's Ridge subdivision- one of the newest developments off 231. Fiber is a glass connection under the ground, creating really high speeds. NCTC says this type of internet capable of up to 1,000 megabits per second.
Drake's Ridge is one of the first neighborhoods with fiber internet in Warren County.

This summer, the company began building its advanced fiber network into Bowling Green, as part of KentuckyWired, the state's program focused on building fiber across Kentucky.
This is NCTC's first project in Warren County, but not the last as the company is bringing fiber all the way up to I-65 and several projects on either side of Highway 231 they will be implementing soon.
NCTC says this state of the art technology is certified as a Gig Capable Provider across the country.

Fiber internet is only available in areas where optic fiber lines have been already laid. It is easier when the lines are laid prior to building, hence, why fiber is scarce in certain areas.
