Good Morning!
As of right now SEMO Electric Cooperative only has a few outages. Team SEMO will have an all employee zoom meeting this morning as we all work together to monitor the weather and continue to be prepared to restore outages as quickly and safely as possible. Part of keeping the lights on is keeping our facilities safe for Team SEMO to come to work. A big thank you to all of our crews and employees that worked throughout the night and will work all day. Praying that we all have a calm and peaceful day. As always, we appreciate your patience with us. Stay safe if you have to be out and about. 🙏

Bundle Discount will go away with bills due in Jan 2022.

2:22PM November 03, 2021

Rather than raise monthly costs for Internet, TV and phone services for 2022, the GoSEMO fiber bundle discount will go away with bills due in Jan 2022. We take billing increases seriously so it doesn’t’ make sense to give a discount and raise rates. As our CEO Sean Vanslyke said in October’sRural Missouri, we have held prices the same since we started offering services in February 2018. Now, the best way to move forward is to remove the GoSEMO bundle discount (a $10 or $15 discount if subscribers have two or three services). We plan to leave our internet and telephone prices the same for 2023, but subscribers should expect a TV rate increase in 2023. Why? Because TV network costs are simply crazy as there is no local control and they have a great deal of power over the marketplace. Streaming has become the mainstream option. We don’t like bad news, but we believe transparency is vital as our focus is to make people’s lives better with electricity and broadband services.

Thank you for being part of the GoSEMO Fiber family and for being a loyal subscriber.

Dove Season 2021

7:41AM September 21, 2021

SIKESTON, Mo. (KFVS) - A Heartland electric company is seeing outages due people shooting birds.

 SEMO Electric Cooperative are experiencing these broadband outages because of doves being shot at while on utility lines in southeast Missouri.

 Ten occurrences have happened since the start of September for this particular company.

 Fiber optic cables have been riddled by bullets, causing damages and outages.

 We talked with SEMO Electric Cooperative Fiber Services Manager Loyd Rice who says each incident costs around $10,000 to repair and will interrupt services.

 “The data that does flow, that could be e-911 telephone services, that could be a work from home. This year especially, a student that needs to be home doing homework. Those outages again range from about four to our longest one, about 10 hours,” said Loyd.

 He said these repairs can be costly on crews and customers.

 “It’s actual welding of glass to splice these back together, very time consuming, very costly equipment,” Rice said. “So the nature of your outage for what seems like a real innocent, ‘hey I’m going to shoot the bird off the line’, becomes very costly to the member cooperative.”

 Rice hopes people spread the word about this issue before it causes more interruptions.

 “We really have to start getting the message out because as our service territory continues to grow, what has become a few thousand is going to be an even bigger impact this time next year,” said Loyd.

 The Missouri Department of Conservation says dove season runs until November 29th this year.

Outage is fixed

5:02PM September 04, 2021

All fiber services are restored due to the gunshot outage in our Tilsit, Jackson, Gordonville and Cape area.

Outage due to gunshot

3:26PM September 04, 2021

Unfortunately a large part of the service territory was affected by a fiber outage today due to illegally hunting doves and shooting our fiber mainline.  Our crews continue to make the repairs and splices necessary, but this very costly damage just takes a lot of time as well because of the location of the broken fibers. 

We appreciate your patience and please help spread the word to not shoot at the fiber optic lines. Visit our GoSEMO Fiber Facebook page.

Fiber company leader hopes to bring more fiber-optic internet to rural southeast Missouri

3:17PM August 24, 2021 

SIKESTON, Mo. (KFVS) - The effort continues to bring broadband internet service to rural communities in southeast Missouri, and leaders with Go SEMO hope the state’s huge financial commitment to broadband means more resources to make it happen.

Last week Governor Mike Parson announced a $400-million broadband investment to bring connectivity to every corner of the state.

That’s welcome news to Go SEMO Fiber, now in its fourth year of a major project to bring hope of high-speed internet to its customers in six southeast Missouri counties.

“We’ll effectively wrap up our fiber buildout of 2,000 miles in our six county territory this September,” Loyd Rice said.

Loyd Rice is the fiber services manager for GoSEMO Fiber. His crews have spent the last four years bringing high-speed internet to thousands of people across southeast Missouri.

“We’ve effectively built past at least half of Stoddard County, all of Scott County, because its right here in the middle of the territory, all of Mississippi County, some of New Madrid, Cape and Bollinger Counties, that’s the six county territory,” Rice said.

Rice said it costs roughly $30,000 per mile to build out that fiber, so the governor’s multimillion-dollar-commitment to broadband is welcome news.

“Our hope is that some of that money will filter right on down to the broadband level,” Rice said.

“It’s very difficult to do your best in school when you’re focusing on your internet capabilities,” Suzanne Mosier said.

Three Rivers student Suzanne Mosier lives between Kelso and Benton.

“I have had the difficulty of getting enough internet together to my computer and running out of internet in the month to get all my homework done,” Mosier said.

“There has been a COVID grant through Go SEMO where they have most recently ran lines to my house within the last few weeks that has proven to be helpful,” she said.

“We really hope because what we see happen in our service territory, where we’ve already deployed every day, lives are changing, small businesses, work from home and more importantly as we head back to school, school from home,” Rice said.
