Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TCEC) is happy to announce that connecting high-speed broadband internet service to members in Madison County has begun.
The first ‘official’ connection of residential fiber in Madison County belongs to Randy and Kathy Floyd of Greenville. The Floyds have been proud members of TCEC for over 30 years.
TCEC announced in April 2022, the plan to launch a fiber-to-the-home network that will provide access to internet and voice services to 15,000 homes and businesses throughout its service territory. The initial project will focus on TCEC members who receive electric service.
TCEC and Conexon Connect are investing approximately $65 million to build the network and expect the project to be completed within two to three years. The network is designed for quality, reliable, sustainable, high-speed internet service that can be built efficiently and safely.
The service will soon be available to members in Jefferson County as well. Connect, powered by TCEC’s Broadband network will become widely available on a “rolling” basis as network construction crews continue to work in all counties TCEC serves, throughout the duration of construction and installation.
By visiting www.conexonconnect.com, members can click the "Check Availability" button and then provide the address or electric account number to determine availability and timeframe for their area. That information is necessary to provide an estimated timeline of when construction can be expected to be completed in that area.
Additionally, we encourage members to complete the sign-up process and select the preferred package. Signing up will put the property on the list for initial exterior prep work. Members that sign up online will also receive regular updates as construction nears the area.
Conexon Connect offers three internet plans to choose from to meet various customer needs and will be available to members with no data caps, contracts, or required bundles. Plans starting at $49.95 a month, with installation and equipment included during the project’s construction phases.
TCEC believes that everyone deserves access to the internet connection they need. Conexon Connect, powered by TCEC, is pleased to participate in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) to offer a discount on broadband services for qualifying households.
ACP provides a monthly discount of up to $30 per month for internet services for qualifying households.
To check availability and sign up for the service, visit ConexonConnect.com or call 1-844-542-6663.
