Sprout Fiber Internet is the name of Cullman Electric Cooperative’s high-speed fiber internet service.
By connecting our substations and office with fiber-optic cable, we will create a smarter grid that will provide us with more automation capabilities, ultimately increasing the reliability of our electric service to members.
This endeavor also falls in line with our mission to power communities and empower members. High-speed internet today is the electricity of the 1930s and 1940s. In 1930, fewer than 10% of farms had access to electricity. Much like our cooperative did with electricity more than 80 years ago, we’re going to provide reliable, affordable broadband to our members.
Fiber is the fastest and most reliable internet connection available. Speeds of up to 1 gig are possible (that’s 1,000 Mbps, or megabits per second), with enough bandwidth to power your whole business or household. Internet over fiber helps businesses operate efficiently and competitively. It powers advances in health care and education. It even enhances entertainment, with ultrafast video streaming (no buffering) and gaming (no lag).
