We had a call on Good Friday from a reporter at Fox 28 who was interested in doing a story on our fiber project. We haven’t done a major media announcement yet, and were curious how they learned about us. Seems one of their cameramen, also a co-op member, got his letter about service being available and eagerly shared it with his newsroom colleagues! The result is this story that aired last week.
It’s a great story, and another great example of how this grassroots effort works — neighbor telling neighbor and sharing their excitement about this long-awaited service.
Neighbors are really working it in the North Cassopolis zone, where they’re already 14% to goal. There’s activity going on just about everywhere now as you all work to spread the word.
