LexGig is the initiative to bring high-speed, gigabit internet to Lexington.
What is a Gigabit City?
Gigabit refers to speeds of 1,000 megabits per second. Lexington's average Internet speed is 16.2 megabits per second.
Lexington's 16.2 megabits per second ranks 38th of 96 Kentucky cities and towns where the Internet is available.
Why become a Gigabit City?
To attract new businesses and improve resident life. Many school systems would like to move to more computer-based learning, but those systems often can't because not everyone has access to the Internet.
