The Jones County Board of Commissioners has elected to utilize $5 million in American Recovery (ARPA) funds to bring broadband internet service to unserved or underserved areas of Jones County. Through a partnership with Tri-CoGo, over 1,800 locations in 34 areas of the county will see fiber-to-the-home construction and availability. Fiber construction will begin in August 2023.
“High-speed internet is no longer a luxury in today’s world,” said Jones County Board of Commissioners Chairman Chris Weidner. “Virtually everyone needs it for everyday life, and many Jones Countians have gone without it for a long time. We’re happy to partner with Tri-CoGo to improve access to high-speed internet in Jones County.”
“We are excited about the opportunity to spread rural broadband to areas outside of Tri-County EMC’s footprint,” commend Greg Mullis, Tri-CoGo chief operating officer. “One of our most frequent questions is when we will be able to serve Georgia Power customers with real need, so it’s exciting to be able to announce the partnership.”
