Wednesday, June 8, 2016
Workers continue to make steady progress installing fiber optic cable lines throughout Cassville as part of Barry Electric's plan to bring the city upn to speed with the latest and greatest in high-speed internet and streaming technology. J.R. Smith, goBEC manager, said fiber technology far surpasses cable and copper options in terms of speed, quality and versatility. Fiber optic cable, which can transmit a signal at the speed of light, is also more stable and less susceptible to interruptions from weather disturbances such as wind and lightning.

Smith said about 80 percent of Phase 1 has been completed, with over 100 miles of mainline fiber optics installed. Julia Kilmer reporter@cassville-democrat.com
