Thank you for your interest in HolstonConnect. We appreciate that you are as excited about broadband as we are, and we know there will be lots of questions.
It all began in 2016 when Holston Electric Cooperative began installation of 110 miles of fiber backbone to connect powerlines and substations. This smart grid network would modernize the electric system and allow for digital technology that would detect and react to changes in electricity supply usage while improving operating efficiencies and increasing service quality.
