In 2012, Hays, Kansas saw the completion of a three year project to bring fiber throughout this community of over 20,000 in northwest Kansas. With upgrades completed in 2014, Hays is now a gigabit community, able to deliver 1 gigabit speeds to homes, and over 10 gigabit speeds to businesses.

Located halfway between Denver and Kansas City on I-70, the City of Hays is the hub for retail, healthcare, employment, and education in northwestern Kansas.  With gigabit internet speeds, Hays seeks to add technology hub to that list as well.  An integral part of the technology drive is Fort Hays State University with over 13,000 students enrolled both on campus and in their virtual college. The University is a leader of technology driven academics, and is a designated National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance.  Hays Regional Medical Center, the largest employer in Hays, utilizes their access to high speed telecommunications to support a network of small rural clinics and hospitals with telemedicine services: consultations, diagnostics, image transmissions, teleconferencing, and more.

From start-ups to established industry players, the City of Hays is seeking to meet the needs of business as technology changes and opportunities expand.
