Update: Rural Broadband Initiative
3:41PM August 31, 2021
Carroll EMC is working in cooperation with SyncGlobal Telecom to build a rural broadband network that will deliver fiber internet service to CEMC members. We anticipated that network construction would begin in August, and first customers would start receiving service by the end of the year. As is often the case with projects of this magnitude, the schedule has changed, and we want to keep you informed.
Due to a number of factors, most notably regulatory process delays and supply chain slowness, construction is now expected to begin early in the 4th quarter. As a result, we now anticipate initial customer activations will begin in early 2nd quarter of 2022.
Carroll EMC and SyncGlobal are committed to solving West Georgia's rural broadband gap. It's going to take time, but with your support we are going to solve our rural broadband problem once and for all. A 100% fiber network backed by the best technology and delivered by people you can count on is that permanent solution. Thank you for your patience as we work diligently to bring superior fiber internet service to your area.
