History

How NCK-WiFi hotspots came to be

North Central Kansas Community Network (NCKCN) and Cunningham Telephone & Cable (CTC) first began working on the NCK-WiFi project for North Central Kansas back in 2015. After several months of thorough testing on a single unit, to ensure that all kinks were worked out of course, this project began to take off with flying colors!

After careful planning from both companies, CTC (a telephone, Internet/video, and cable company) began the first step to establish what NCK-WiFi is today - they began and are in charge of placing fiber cables down where needed (per location) so that NCK-WiFi can work properly. All the while that CTC places these fiber cables down, NCKCN (a community-based wireless Internet service provider) started taking the next step - they began (and still are) working diligently on setting up the required equipment at certain locations (More locations expected to come soon). They then conduct further testing to ensure each location works properly before making the NCK-WiFi network available for public use. Once testing is over at each location, a new NCK-WiFi "hotspot" is born. These "hotspots" are made available for anyone as long as they are within the vicinity (range) of that particular "hotspot" location.

As more and more "hotspots" pop up (get setup) around surrounding areas, the stronger the network will become. At this point, the NCK-WiFi network is still in its infancy stage, but NCKCN and CTC have plans and are in the works on expanding the network up to 20+ different locations within the North Central Kansas region.
