SHEPHERDSVILLE - The outskirts of Bullitt County will soon be better technologically connected thanks to Inside Connect Cable, LLC.
The cable service provider purchased the Time Warner/Windjammer plant located in the Brooks area, allowing the company to expand toward northwestern areas of the county.
Inside Connect co-owners Val and Tony Manley and Rusty Smith look forward to providing high-speed Internet, high speed Broadband cable and premium movie channels, high definition and pay-per-view programming, fiber optics and long distance phone service by early August.
“We’re just excited to bring Broadband to these areas,” said Tony Manley.
Inside Connect currently serves areas south of Highway 44 to Highway 245 and Woodsdale Road. Manley said the company could serve as many as 4,000 customers with 1,100 potential households located in the expansion area.
The new areas receiving full Inside Connect services include Brooks Hill, Knob Creek, Mt. Elmira and the Nichols area just past Nichols Elementary.
“There are some existing Inside Connect customers in that area but with limited service,” said Manley. “There’s a whole lot of excitement up there now.”
Manley said a new office was being planned at the newly acquired location in Brooks. He said the existing plant would be totally rebuilt.
“The location will give us the ability to expand westward,” he said.
Inside Connect planned to expand into northwestern Bullitt for a couple of years, Manley said. Wasting no time, work crews immediately dispatched to install electric and service lines.
Manley and fellow co-owner Smith bring 60 years of business and cable experience to Inside Connect, combined with a management team of local residents including lead technician Kevin Nusz, IT technician T.J. Scott and office manager Amy Larison.
Inside Connect is located at 150 Livers Lane in the Cedar Grove area. Office hours are weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information call 543-7551 or visit www.insideconnect.net.
