JONESBORO SUN: Cooperative strives for rural connectivity

Written by Press Release

September 2, 2020

JONESBORO — The coronavirus pandemic has changed internet connectivity from a luxury to a necessity, and Arkansas’ electric cooperatives have been in the forefront of bringing broadband internet to the state’s rural areas.

“The co-ops have a history of pushing Arkansas forward,” U.S. Sen. John Boozman said Tuesday during a visit to Craighead Electric Cooperative Inc. in Jonesboro.

Boozman and Rep. Rick Crawford were in town to announce federal investment in a $104 million project that will connect more than 2,300 users to broadband and build and improve 348 miles of line.
