Claiborne Electric General Manager & CEO Mark Brown has issued an update on the Co-op’s Fiber-to-the-Home Internet project.
In his statement, Brown explains the Co-op’s inability to update members until now due to an agreement that kept involved parties from publicly discussing the project.
He explains the Co-op’s participation in the Federal Communications Commission’s Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) Auction, the results of the auction, and what it means for the Co-op and its members moving forward.
