Issac Maxfield, Executive Director of Kaslo infoNet Society (KiN), appeared as a delegation at May’s RDCK Board Meeting. The not-for-profit internet service provider is in the process of bringing fibre optic internet service to most communities on the West Shore of Kootenay Lake, north of Ainsworth. With grant funding from the likes of the RDCK and Columbia Basin Trust, Maxfield updated the Board on how KiN is expanding into Johnsons Landing and Argenta this year and into Meadow Creek and Cooper Creek next year. KiN is looking to expand into other areas within the RDCK to improve connectivity across rural areas.
