A partnership between two local cooperatives will bring world-class fiber internet to about 800 homes and businesses in Warren County.
Warren RECC, a local electric cooperative, and NCTC, a local telecommunications cooperative, are uniting to install fiber optic internet to those in the pilot area. Fiber is the fastest, most advanced way to deliver internet service and is capable of delivering speeds up to a gigabit per second.
Fiber technology meets our needs today and can fuel our needs well into the future. Internet across a fiber network powers education, telehealth, remote work, community development and overall quality of life. Through pulses of light traveling along hair-thin strands of glass, fiber will support the communications demands of our region for decades to come.
Construction is expected to begin in late 2019, and high-speed internet service will be available to homes and businesses in the pilot area in 2020. If the pilot program is successful, the cooperatives hope to expand services to other areas.
That’s where you’re needed. If you live within the pilot area, sign up for service with NCTC and encourage your neighbors to sign up, too.
