Why fiber internet?

Why fiber internet?

In last month’s article, I shared that Tipmont is bringing fiber broadband internet to our members. Feedback from our members has made it clear that their quality of life was threatened due to the lack of a high speed broadband internet service. As a member-owned and member-driven organization, Tipmont is uniquely positioned to meet these challenges.

2017 Reliability Report: Transmission improvements

2017 Reliability Report: Transmission improvements

Each year in March, I write a summary of the previous year’s electric reliability report. It’s fascinating to write each year because of the variety in Mother Nature’s behavior, which is a major determinant of outages. 2015 was a very weather-neutral year, which resulted in one of the lowest numbers of total member minutes out in Tipmont’s history. We weren’t so lucky in 2016, as two summer storms caused member minutes out to spike by 33 percent. In 2017, the total number of member minutes out was down about 16 percent from 2016.

Broadband announcement

At the January 2018 board meeting, Tipmont REMC’s Board of Directors voted to authorize the design, construction and delivery of fiber optic broadband and related services to the Tipmont membership. The vote was unanimous and follows 18 months of due diligence, including extensive feasibility evaluation and market analysis.

Delivering value in 2017

Delivering value in 2017

I frequently use this space to talk about how we define Tipmont as an essential services provider. We continued our journey in 2017 by focusing on those services that provide the best value while also staying consistent with our areas of expertise.
