Socket is constructing a fiber-to-the-home network to bring broadband services to more than 3,000 homes and businesses in rural Boone and Callaway Counties, as well as parts of Fulton, MO. This last-mile project is funded by a combination loan and grant totaling $23.7 million as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The project will allow Socket to deliver local telephone, high-definition television and high-speed Internet up to 30 Mbps to area residents and businesses.
