Socket was happy to be a part of the Millersburg Community Parade and Celebration on Saturday! It was a perfect day to celebrate the town, which is located west of Fulton and is one of the areas to benefit from Socket's fiber-to-the-home network.

The parade, which traveled from the Millersburg Christian Church all the way to the Lions Club, included tractors, pedal bikes, classic cars, and our own Socket van (with plenty of candy, of course). Afterwards, the Celebration had everything from reenacting old west gun fights to classic balloon popping games. We even brought some balloons ourselves.

Recently, several Internet service providers have balked at the idea of broadband service being reclassified as 10 Mbps by the FCC. Socket is not one of them.

Under current FCC definitions, broadband in the United States is defined as 4 Mbps. Any ISP seeking to build out a broadband network using government funding or subsidies must therefore provide speeds of at least 4 Mbps to the users they plan to serve.


Socket is happy to sponsor the Como Cyclocross series for the third year running - if you’ve stopped by our office on a Tueday night, you’ve probably seen them in action!


Cyclocross is a form of bike racing, where participants are required to quickly dismount and remount their bikes to get over hurdles, hills and any number of other obstacles on the track.  The series is 12 weeks long and starts in September each year.
