CHRISTMAS COMES EARLY TO ALCORN COUNTY!
ACE Fiber has now completed fiber-to-the-home broadband to every, single home in Alcorn County that gets their electricity from Alcorn Co. Electric Power Association. They began construction in May of last year and are done.
I was honored to work with them to bring over $10,000,000 in federal and state funds to Alcorn Co. for broadband!
