Update on Cook County Broadband

The Arrowhead Electric Coop does such a nice job of keeping customers and out-of-town fans updated on what’s happening with their fiber network. Yesterday they posted a Facebook update on progress in their area…

Broadband Construction 7/8/13: Underground construction doing clean-up in the Coyote Ridge area, boring County Road 7 & E. 5th St., Croftville area. Drops E & W 3rd and 4th Streets, Highway 61 in Grand Marais and County Road 60. Aerial work will resume on 7/9/13.

I like to share the update for two reasons. First – it’s good to see the network grow. Second – it’s a great example of best practice in terms of building interest and keeping potential customers informed.
