Over our 80 year history of delivering electricity, Consolidated’s focus has not changed – we are committed to delivering services to our members. Broadband Internet is as important to the current and future growth of our country as electricity was when we started in 1936.  

Our measured approach to enhancing broadband Internet connectivity has served the community well, but we know we can do more.  Consolidated receives calls from our members weekly that want broadband Internet delivered directly to their homes and businesses through our fiber-optic network.  

We Need Your Help!

We want to gauge your level of interest regarding how Consolidated can improve your quality of life through telecommunications services.

In a world of video streaming, telecommuting, video conferencing, and online education, connectivity is not a luxury; it’s a necessity. Unfortunately, many homeowners and businesses in our region report insufficient access to reliable Internet service. The absence of high-speed Internet denies our member-owners and others in the region access to all the amenities an Internet connected world has to offer.  It also discourages businesses from investing in our communities which results in missed job opportunities.

Is it cost effective for Consolidated to offer broadband services to your homes?  We are not sure yet.

By answering a few of our questions we will know if Consolidated should explore this option. Please take the following survey and let us know what you think!

CEC takes next step in broadband initiative planning

12:55pm March 31, 2017

Our consultant has completed the initial feasibility study to provide our residential members with broadband services. Now, our consultant is in the process of completing our business plan and initial engineering studies. The next important milestone will be the end of the second quarter 2017 when we will have a definitive direction at that time. 

What can you do? Continue to encourage your neighbors, friends and family to register and complete the survey located at https://consolidated.crowdfiber.com.  We will continue to use the survey information to refine product packages, pricing, and interest. Watch for continued updates on the crowdfiber website, CEC's website and Facebook page.

 Thank you for your continued interest and patience in CEC's broadband to the home initiative. It is a long and arduous process.  We continue to be amazed and pleased by your passionate support and demand of better options for residential broadband and telecommunications services.

I live in the Centerburg area. The only "high-speed" internet connection available to me is satellite. The speed is variable, the cost high and the data limits are very low for modern needs. If areas such as that in which I live are to participate effectively in the modern economy/society, a network such as what is being proposed/studied by CEC is very important.

Any update on when this service might be available in any of the areas of study?

The options available to me are terrible! I have been suffering under an inconsistent connection for years, let alone having the option for faster speeds. I know that myself and many of my neighbors would switch instantly if this service came to our road/area.

Build it and they will come! Every person i know on Creek Rd and Centerburg Rd is willing to switch ASAP! We have been dealing with slow speeds for years!!! You have our support!!

This needs to be done. We have a max speed choice of 10 Mbps for $100/month. This is ridiculous and needs to be changed. I would be willing to switch the second fiber was offered in my area.

I love the idea of bringing fiber to our area. Frontier is available but is slow and spotty at best. TWC is available but often the through-put is bottle necked in our area at certain times of the day, more so now that summer is on. The service is also expensive for what you end up with. Having something like this would be great as long as the price is right.

I work in the IT field and telecommute from home. Our slow DSL internet crashes multiple times per month, leaving me scrambling to find alternatives. We love it here but I couldn't imagine starting my own business in this neighborhood due to the poor communications services. Our 3G/4G wireless coverage is spotty and slow as well. Having a fiber optic internet available to us would be like trading our horse & buggy for a flying car!

Our internet options are drastically insufficient in our rural area! Thank You Consolidated for pursuing other options for many of us who are underserved! The only viable option on our section of road is satellite ~ slow and patchy~ and a total limit of 10G per month ~very insufficient for all of our educational needs! I truly hope this endeavor is a success!
