First Customers to be Connected by February 2022
Southern Rivers Energy and Conexon Connect continue making progress toward bringing world-class fiber broadband to local communities and SRE members!
Project update from Conexon Connect
We hit another important milestone in November, connecting our very first trial customers. These “friendlies” are helping us refine our processes, steps, and all the many details that will go into delivering fiber broadband over the Connect, powered by Southern Rivers Energy network. The feedback of these willing members will help ensure our installation, service, and customer service interactions run smoothly and conveniently for all SRE members.
On the heels of our “friendly” trials, we expect to begin connecting members served by the Tobesofkee substation on Highway 41 South by February 2022. This will start for members in and around the areas between Bottoms and City Pond Roads, Crawford and Brooks Roads, and parts of Johnstonville Road. We look forward to seeing the positive impact this will have on our communities.
How Fast is Fast? Fiber Fast…Times 2!
Ever since we announced our project, we’ve been touting the advantages and speed of the Connect powered by Southern Rivers Energy all-fiber network. Well, that just doubled! Along with the 100 Mbps and 1 Gigabit symmetrical speed packages, Conexon Connect is now offering a 2 Gigabit package – providing download speeds of 2,000 Mbps and uploads between 1,000 and 2,000 Mpbs. Connect Premier offers download speeds of up to 2 gigabits per second; upload speeds are typically between 1 and 2 gigabits per second. 2-gigabit speeds can be obtained by directly connecting via ethernet cable to the ONT. The device conducting the speed test must be capable of sending and receiving data at a minimum of 2 gigabits of throughput.
