Fiber is Faster

RiverNet Connect crew members with first customers.
Congratulations to our first RiverNet Connect customer! Pictured from left are RiverNet Connect employees Nick Dorman and John Cauthen, FOS contract employee Kevin Adams, the Eaker family and Greg Demby, a FOS contract employee.

Perhaps our biggest and most exciting project of 2020 was the launch of our fiber internet subsidiary, RiverNet Connect. In the past year, we’ve hung over 290 miles of fiber throughout our service area to offer high-quality, high-speed internet to thousands of members. As a matter of fact, after months of planning and preparation, we’re excited to have connected our first member to receive service from RiverNet Connect. Though it will take time, we will continue to work until we accomplish our goal to provide world-class internet to every house in every community we serve.

We are proud of all we have accomplished for our members and our community in the past year, but our work is not done. As always, we will continue to strive to better serve you every day.

From your LREC family, we wish you all a safe and happy holiday season,

BRIAN W. BROUGHTON, President & CEO
