LATEST NEWS FROM ACCORD
It couldn’t have happened at a worse time. Representatives of Mississippi’s electric cooperatives had gathered for the statewide’s July 2021 board meeting when internet service suddenly went out.
That’s when 17 electric co-ops joined forces across the state to build a middle mile broadband network.
Accord Telecommunications Collaborative, LLC, a consortium of electric and telephone cooperatives, announced its formation today. By leveraging the vast fiber assets of its electric and telephone cooperative member-owners, Accord will be able to propel Indiana to be the most connected state in the nation. Through Accord’s unique collaboration, it will create one of the largest contiguous, fiber-based networks in the state.
Accord Telecommunications Collaborative, LLC, a middle-mile provider in the Midwest, now welcomes four new member-owners and announces plans for future expansion.
The most recent additions include Berry Communications, LLC, Mainstream Fiber Networks, LLC, Rochester Telephone Company, and Surf Internet.
