Our Technology

To match our community’s progress and meet its growing needs for the latest in technology, our Cooperative has installed a fiber optics network, also known as Fiber To The Home (FTTH). Because Fiber uses light instead of electricity to transmit data, the frequencies that are used are much higher and the data capacity is much higher than copper cables. Since fiber strands are made of glass or plastic instead of metal, it allows data/video to flow over great distances. Fiber offers many new possibilities for communication services, such as more reliable and faster internet speeds, and quality Video services. We are excited to have the latest technology, and to bring light into YOUR life!
