Fiber Timeline Shows Completion In Sight
In September, 2018, the East Central Electric Board of Trustees approved a landmark decision to extend fiber internet to our members.
The luxuries of high speed internet that were previously off-limits to rural America are now proving their worth, with local advancements in farm automation, medical care, and distance learning.
When the project began, it was projected to be complete in six years. We are currently two years ahead of schedule, with a projected completion date of December 2023.
The project is being built out in five phases. The map below details both the phases, and the electrical feeders to which our members are connected.
Phases 1 and 2 are fully constructed, and members living in those areas can sign on at any time with no contract. Phase 3 is currently under construction.
Within each phase, the feeders open whenever construction in that area is complete and has passed final inspections.
Members who sign up for updates through www.ecolink.coop will receive a notification whenever their area opens up for orders.
Our ecoLINK service also has a dedicated Facebook page where important notifications are announced. Members can follow the page @ecolinkfiber.
