(ROLLA, MO) – Socket, a longtime internet provider in Rolla, is expanding its fiber optic internet
service to residential homes across the city. Socket announced the expansion today at a ribboncutting

last two years, Socket has built and operated a fiber optic network to service businesses
throughout Rolla. With Socket’s business success and the demand for symmetrical fiber based
high speed internet for the home, Socket will begin constructing its fiber optic network to cover
the entire city.

our customers. Socket is proud to be a Missouri-based telecommunications provider and we
plan on bringing state-of-the-art technology and friendly, local support to as many homes and
businesses as possible,” said Socket President and COO Carson Coffman. “Socket is committed
to our investment in constructing critical internet infrastructure in Rolla. Our fiber network will
allow customers to enjoy reliable and fast internet so they can successfully work, go to school,
and even visit with doctors via telemedicine appointments.”
Construction on the fiber lines began in 2020 for Rolla businesses, which will gradually expand
until the entire city has access to high-speed fiber internet.
