Columbia, MO—With Earth Day fast approaching on April 22, 2008, computer users are looking to reduce energy consumption and waste when they use and upgrade their computers and other electronic gadgets. Few people realize how a couple small changes can help save energy, resources and even the money in their pocket.

Much progress has been made in the planning stage of the project since the announcement. Initial construction surveying has begun to determine exactly where the fiber will be buried. However, at this time, we are waiting for the environmental clearances we need from the federal government to begin construction. When we get environmental clearance, we will be ready to begin placing fiber in the ground.
