Early in the twentieth century, Kearney led efforts to
build paved roads by providing private funding to stimulate paving
along the trans-continental route of the Lincoln Highway. Now
labeled US Highway 30, this predecessor of the modern highway
connected Philadelphia to Portland.
Here in the information
age, the uninterrupted transmission of data, enhanced voice
communications and open access to information-- on a globle
scale-- are taking their place along side of other, more
traditional forms of transportation. Just as people and
products travel the byways of Kearney, ideas and information flow
through an advanced system of information technology.
Mindful of its traditional place in the country's development,
and building on the spirit of our pioneer heritage, Kearney,
Nebraska is taking its place as the "Crossroads Of The Future."
In Kearney, you have access to the entire world via ultra
sophisticated telecommunications from GTE.
The Community has been selected as a center for communications
infrastructure in the Midwest. Digital switching, fiber
optics, wireless, and the latest World Class Network services
offer safe, high-speed transmission and processing of data,
voice, graphics . . . even video. These networks are reliable,
fully expandable and allow the ultimate in connectivity.
Again, Kearney blazed new trails by creating a partnership to help
communities, businesses and people realize the full benefits of
the information age. Through the creation of the Community Networking
Institute, Kearney has established a regional development organization
that provides comprehensive information technology services.
