Thacker-Grigsby Telephone and AT&T can also provide Internet service in Gordon, with shared coverage areas in some blocks.
In summary, Gordon's broadband infrastructure conforms with a common pattern in Kentucky metro areas: widespread availability of cable and DSL Internet service, with the problem being that most residences are limited to only one option for subscribing to either type of Internet service. This pattern has a logical cause. Broadband service providers are former TV and landline telephone corporations. So, they can use these pre-existing copper wired networks to deliver broadband Internet bundles. Fiber Internet has been growing as a third option, and while some plans marketed as "Fiber" plans aren't actually true "Fiber to the Home" connections, 72.70 percent of the area has coverage by fiber Internet reaching at least as far as the street nearby.
