"Watts" Going On at CCEC...
Exciting News For CCEC Members And Area Residents
We have some exciting news to share regarding a new project CCEC will be undertaking. TransWorld Network, Corp. (TWN) is a communications company that works in partnership with rural electric cooperatives to provide high speed Internet to co-op members and those in surrounding areas. TWN currently works with Lighthouse, Lyntegar, North Plains, Big Country and Greenbelt Electric Cooperatives to provide this service to customers with great success. CCEC has decided to also offer this program because of the continued need in our area for reliable and affordable broadband services, coupled with our desire to provide additional value added services to our members and those in surrounding areas.
TWN has built a solid reputation over the past 20+ years they have worked alongside electric cooperatives throughout the United States. Much like co-ops, TWN strives to offer the highest level of customer care to those they serve. In partnership with TWN, CCEC will offer high-speed Internet and digital phone service throughout our service territory and surrounding areas. It is important to note that to be a TWN customer, it is not a requirement to be a CCEC member. Initially, service will be available in limited areas while the network infrastructure is being developed and deployed. Internet plans will start at $43.95 per month for a plan that offers speeds up to 2 Mbps. The fastest residential plan will be $99.95 per month and will provide speeds up to 10 Mbps to allow adequate bandwidth for streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. Business plans will also be available with speeds and pricing customized for each business.
We anticipate that services will be available in select areas beginning early 2017.
We are excited to share this new service with our community. Since 1937, it has been our utmost priority to meet the needs of those we serve.
