Consolidated Electric Cooperative recently announced that it will do business as Consolidated Cooperative in recognition of their expanded services and offerings.
The change is part of a rebranding effort coinciding with Consolidated’s new fiber-optic internet service. Construction on its network is scheduled to begin in April, with internet service commencing in May. Select residents in western Delaware County will be the first residential locations to receive the fiber build-out.
With the addition of internet service, Consolidated’s full range of services now includes electric, gas (natural gas and propane), and fiber.
Consolidated Cooperative’s fiber-optic network will introduce speeds up to one gigabit per second, which is 100 times faster than the national average of 10 megabits per second. Expansion of the fiber network will continue for multiple years, eventually expanding throughout Consolidated’s electric service area.
“We are eager to introduce fiber internet to the communities we serve,” said Phil Caskey, CEO of Consolidated Cooperative. “The continued prosperity of our members and communities hinges on their having the same access to high-speed internet that people in America’s largest cities enjoy. Consolidated is excited to improve our members’ lives by offering internet service with the reliability and excellence they’ve come to expect from us.”
