NCTC Gig Broadband brings family to Drakes Ridge

Meet the Marquezes.
Searching for a new home, David and Leolie Marquez, along with their teenage children, were looking for the best of both worlds: great internet and rural living.
David teaches Sculpture in the Department of Art at Western Kentucky University in nearby Bowling Green, and Leolie does marketing for a global company, where she spends 70 percent of her day videoconferencing from home.
Their children, 14-year-old David and 12-year-old Gabriella, attend Greenwood High School and Drakes Creek Middle School, respectively. The two find themselves using the internet for homework research, as well as entertainment.
The search for somewhere near David’s university with the broadband capability for Leolie’s job, led them to Drakes Ridge, where NCTC had recently built fiber to the home access at the request of homeowners in the area.
As the first residents of the subdivision and the first to sign up for NCTC’s newly built fiber connection, the Marquezes are laying the foundation for what will be a well-connected community.
