Team SEMO’s Brad Milam shows Castor River Farms’ Johnny Hunter II (left) and John Neeley (right) several strands of fiber inside SEMO Electric Cooperative’s fiber network operations center. A strand of fiber is thin and feels much like a human hair or horse’s mane.
A broadband system, versus wireless or coaxial-cable systems, is being built to provide fiber-fast internet for homes, farms and businesses.
Milam said fiber's speed is not connected to its size because fiber relies on light instead of electricity to transmit data, which facilitates much faster Internet connections that are capable of handling higher bandwidth.
