Since 1936, Gibson Electric Membership Corporation has provided its members with the essential service of electricity. Now, at your urging, we're taking steps to provide you with the essential service of high-speed internet connectvity. Gibson Connect, LLC was formed in June 2017. It is a not-for-profit, wholly owned subsidiary of Gibson EMC.
What makes Gibson Connect different? First, Gibson Connect is powered by the very same people you already know and trust. For us, it's not about profit; it's about providing you with excellent service and supporting our communities. Our goal is to ultimately provide all of our eligible* members access to a 100% fiber network. This is exciting for our members and our communities because fiber offers many important benefits:
- Reliable - It is less affected by weather than other sources.
- Extremely Fast - It gives you access up to 1 Gig (1,000 megabits per second). That's 100 times faster than the national average.
- No Buffering - With our 1 Gig speed you can download a 2-hour HD movie in less than a minute or a 9-hour audiobook in less than a second.
- Not Just Internet - Gibson Connect plans to provide telephone) and possibly TV/video (if there is enough interest) over the same connection. Our telephone offering will operate the same as your local telephone service, but it will include unlimited long distance and advanced calling features.
You and other members will drive our construction plans. If you want us to build fiber to your home or business, register today. Encourage others - your friends, neighbors and community - to register too! When a zone reaches the required participation level, our board of trustees will vote to approve the fiber build-out. Zones that demonstrate the highest levels of interest by exceeding the required participation levels will earn priority.
Gibson EMC has a proud history of providing power to the people of this area and we look forward to providing connectivity to the communities we know and love!
