From the Manager’s Desk
We are almost half way through 2021 after living through a year like no other. Each of us has seen our lives and communities immeasurably changed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
During this time, one thing that has become clear is the need to stay connected. Our children are learning remotely, many of us are working from home, and of course, we’re trying to stay connected through communications such as video messaging. All these new ways we’ve started to learn, work and interact with each other – all of which require high-speed Internet – are likely here to stay. For that reason, I wanted to update you on Petit Jean Electric’s fiber company, Petit Jean Fiber.
I understand that many of our communities and members have very limited and often unreliable options for high-speed Internet. I want to assure you that Petit Jean Electric is working hard to get to those areas with fiber – to –the – home (FTTH) broadband. Over the last few months we have been making decisions, making plans and beginning the ‘make ready’ needed to bring high-speed Internet to the homes of our members. You can check our new Petit Jean Fiber web page to get updates and let us know of your interest in our services. The site is petitjeanfiber.com.
I know it can be frustrating to wait, but please be assured we are working hard to bring this service to our membership. As we advance, we will keep you updated regularly through communications like this, our Petit Jean Fiber website and through social media. I appreciate your patience and support of our members as we progress.
Thank you as always for your support for Petit Jean Electric Cooperative. We appreciation and value our members.
Michael Kirkland, CEO Petit Jean Electric Cooperative Corp
