4:15 PM -- Oh, to be a broadband equipment salesman in Kentucky these days. The state is aiming for full broadband deployment -- to have broadband within reach of all its residents -- by 2007.

This will be tough. Kentucky ranks 44th in its proportion of high-tech companies; 45th in household computer use; and 43rd in citizen Internet use, according to the governor's office. But if things go well, broadband deployment in Kentucky could result in 14,000 jobs and $5 billion added to the Gross State Product annually.
