PONTOTOC, Miss. (WTVA) – Right now Tombigbee Electric Power Association staff is working on phase 3 of their fiber-to-home project.
CEO Scott Hendrix said the phase includes providing all customers with fiber internet service.
“We don’t know anything in science faster than the speed of light. Fiber lets us send internet signals at that speed,” said Hendrix.
Monday, Hendrix and Pontotoc Electric Power Association General Manager Frankie Moorman announced that phase 4 of the project will be providing the service to Pontotoc customers.
“There is a need in Pontotoc County for this high speed internet service,” said Moorman.
Company leaders hope to start the fiber internet process in Pontotoc County by 2023, or when phase 3 is finished, whichever comes first.
