Co-Mo explores fiber-to-home potential

Co-Mo explores fiber-to-home potential

Pilot program would target two test areas

February 20th, 2011 in News

Some members of the Co-Mo Electric Cooperative service territory might soon be linked to the Internet at the fastest speeds seen in this part of Central Missouri.

The cooperative - through its wholly owned subsidiary Co-Mo Comm - has launched a pilot project in two targeted areas to test whether building a fiber-to-the-home broadband network is financially feasible for all of its service territory.

The move comes in the wake of the cooperative's unsuccessful attempt to secure government funding to assist in building the network.
