KANSAS CITY, MO — Conexon, which assists electric cooperatives in deploying broadband networks, has been selected by Arkansas-based Mississippi County Electric Cooperative (MCEC) to deliver a comprehensive range of broadband management services including network design, engineering, construction management, and customer technical support for its fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network.

The electric cooperative's five-year project, encompassing 600 miles of fiber, is in the early stages of construction.  Customers are expected to begin receiving high-speed internet and phone services in mid-2020.

Through the co-op's broadband subsidiary MCEC Fiber, the planned state-of-the-art fiber-optic network will offer members access to symmetrical gigabit internet capabilities – among the fastest and most robust in the nation. Additionally, it will enable enhancements and smart grid capabilities to the electrical infrastructure such as improved power outage response times, better load balancing, more efficient electricity delivery and others.
