If you're a new Socket Fiber customer, you might be discovering everything you can do online. Or maybe you're on the fence about whether to sign up.

Either way, keep in mind that you can get even more use out of a high-speed Internet connection by accessing services from the Daniel Boone Regional Library.

Shannon Thompson is used to being “out in the middle of nowhere.” Her family loves the peace and privacy that their rural property provides. She used to assume this came with a cost, though. No cell phone reception. No high-speed Internet. No premium television service.

So when she heard Socket was bringing fiber-optic technology to her area, Shannon was excited. She’d been eagerly awaiting access to high-speed Internet, and she was one of the first in her area to sign up for it.

Do you have a fun getaway planned? With the weather we’ve had, we don’t blame you a bit.

If you’re heading to a tropical locale this season (or maybe just taking a summer trip) you might be planning to take a laptop computer or tablet to stay connected while you’re gone.
