Socket announces expansion of residential fiber optic internet network in Warrensburg
(WARRENSBURG, MO) – Socket, a longtime internet provider in Warrensburg, is expanding its fiber optic internet service to residential homes across the city. Socket announced the expansion today at a ribbon-cutting and media event at Arwood’s Furniture, a longtime Socket business customer.
Socket has been providing internet services to the Warrensburg market for more than 25 years. For the last five years, Socket has built and operated a fiber optic network to service businesses throughout Warrensburg. With Socket’s business success and the demand for symmetrical fiber based high speed internet for the home, Socket began constructing its fiber optic network to cover the entire city.
“At Socket, we are unusual – we bring unusually good internet and unusually good service to our customers. Socket is proud to be mid-Missouri’s largest provider of residential fiber,” said Socket President and COO Carson Coffman. “Socket is committed to our investment in constructing critical internet infrastructure in Warrensburg. 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 has already begun in the neighborhoods of Northfield, Foxridge, Claymont, Maxwell, Market, Sellmans, Parkway Village and Brookside Place. Additional neighborhoods will follow as construction crews finish Phase I, until the entire city has access to high-speed fiber internet.
Socket was founded in 1994 with the goal of providing better telephone and dial-up service to Missourians. In 2007, they began offering DSL internet and in 2011, Socket began constructing its fiber internet network. Today, Socket meets the needs of business and residential customers in 19 counties and counting with lightning-fast high-speed internet, TV, phone service, and a host of commercial communication solutions.
