2017 MCEC’s Annual Meeting a Huge Success

9:30am April 21, 2017

What a fun night April 7 proved to be at Lexington High School. We were thrilled to join our Mid-Carolina Electric Cooperative partners at their 2017 annual meeting. With more than 2,800 members in attendance, we enjoyed speaking with many of you at our tent and sharing information about our lightning-fast internet service. Each service install we complete this spring brings us closer and closer to completing the initial service area along MCEC’s core electric distribution route.  You can follow this route by clicking on the “Service Areas” tab of this website. It’s an exciting place to be; the Carolina Connect team is ready to bring you internet made better.

Progress Update

12:22pm March 29, 2017

CarolinaConnect van

We are pleased to report that the engineering of our network is underway and we are making significant headway. 

Building a fiber optic internet distribution system takes time, especially when it is delivered right to your home. MCEC is diligently working through the various steps of managing contract crews and navigating weather contingencies. Meanwhile, CarolinaConnect is preparing for service installations in homes that will soon be green-lighted for service. It’s a detailed process to launch and coordinate a major communication construction project like this, but one we know will be well worth it.

If you’re interested in CarolinaConnect’s affordable, ultra-fast internet service, please join the list so we can keep you updated on installation plans. We're projecting our first major service area will come online later this spring. Please contact us at (803) 785-3455 if you have any questions.

Initial, full-service launch just around the corner.

4:15pm January 17, 2017

We’re on a mission to change the way MCEC members access the internet, and we’re thrilled to let you know we’ve already brought fiber internet to life for a group of pilot customers. We’re busy analyzing that data, continuing our testing where necessary and preparing for our initial full-service launch. 

The enthusiasm and excitement from co-op members has been overwhelming. By joining our list, many members have already helped influence construction plans and your input will continue as a vital component to our strategy. We’re one step closer to bringing you better internet service, and we look forward to sharing our progress with you. Check back often to find out what we're up to and how much closer we are to bringing lightning-fast internet to you.

Here are just a few of the great things MCEC members are saying about CarolinaConnect:

“Can’t wait to connect! Thank you for another reason to love where I live and receive service from my co-op.”
- a Batesburg resident

“Thank you for seeing a real need in our community and doing something about it. Can't wait to finally have high-speed internet!”
- a Gilbert resident

“I work from home, and it’s been very inconvenient to have slow or limited data access—I've missed out on business and training events because of it. Looking forward to this service!”
- a Leesville resident
