SEMO Electric leveraging CrowdFiber for fiber analysis
4:40PM September 05, 2017
We made a quick visit to CrowdFiber to learn about their software to help SEMO Electric Cooperative utilize real-time, multi-dimensional analysis tools to plan and respond to the fiber market and run what-if scenarios to help deploy the cooperative’s capital most effectively. The process has some similarities to the electric business. In addition, CrowdFiber will eventually help reach new subscribers through social media, zone-based email and neighbor-to-neighbor direct mail.
To date, nearly 600 supporters have registered at gosemofiber.com. The first build-out of SEMO Electric’s fiber network begins September 11 for member-owners served by the Miner substation. Once the fiber is pulled or plowed, it will take about four to five months before homes, farms and businesses will be wired and connected for fiber internet.
