A Note from the Staff
February 28, 2012
Have you noticed the construction project out back at the Kearney Branch? A company called Bluebird Media has leased the land behind us as part of the Missouri Broadband Now project. The project intends to construct a fiber network that brings ultra-high-speed Internet broadband infrastructure to underserved rural communities. Bluebird is building similar sites all over northern and central Missouri north of Highway 50 and across the state.
Bryan Gash, MCPL’s Information Technologies Manager, said that part of the lease agreement with Bluebird Media will include some sort of Internet service that MCPL can use, though the details have yet to be hammered out. He says that in the future, we may even see an Internet tower in our backyard.
