In 2010, Co-Mo Electric Cooperative expanded from delivering electrical services to begin a 100-mile, fiber-to-the-home pilot project to reach 1400 homes around Tipton, Missouri. With the strong success of the pilot, two years later Co-Mo decided to build out its fiber network to reach all 4000 miles of its electrical serving area, which would target more than 30,000 cooperative members.
We first visited Co-Mo just after the cooperative decided to move from pilot to complete build out in 2012. Recently, we went back to Missouri to see how Co-Mo, now dubbed Co-Mo Connect for its broadband services, has progressed in the last three years.
Take a look at this updated Calix success story video as Co-Mo Connect general manager Randy Klindt shares the transformation story of Co-Mo Connect from pilot program to gigabit services with Calix GigaCenters.
To hear more of the Co-Mo Connect story, join us at the Calix User Group Conference as Randy takes the stage in Las Vegas as part of the Where Are They Now presentation on Tuesday morning.
