Our annual meeting was held Tuesday evening at the Russell County High School gym and we had another great crowd as we have in years past. We had approximately 330 members that registered with over 500 in total attendance.

After registration we meet in the gym for a quick business meeting where Mr. Tom Preston, Executive VP/CEO, gave an update on another great year in 2017 with continued dividend returns to our members, and a growing partnership with Bluegrass Cellular the cooperative is positioned to offer more for its customers with faster broadband speeds at lower rates and expand services to new markets.

The fun started after the meeting with the door prize drawing for those who registered and our grand prize winner of the 65" SmartTV was Melissa Swallows and the winner of the BlackStone Grill was Angela McQueary. Many other great prizes was won by other members and you can check out those details on our Facebook page. We certainly appreciate all our members that attended and look forward to another exciting year of expansion, fiber builds, faster broadband, TV and wireless technologies being delivered to our customers.

WiFi has increasingly become the standard method for connecting all our devices to the Internet, but even the best WiFi setups can have trouble delivering maximum capacity to all parts of your home or business. The solution is multiple wireless access points placed throughout your home or business. Mesh-enhanced WiFi is the solution, but purchasing your own system can be very costly! Duo County now offers a simple yet powerful solution that extends your WiFi coverage. The number of units required to give full coverage within any building will vary according to the size and configuration of the space. However, with each 804Mesh unit costing only $4.95/month, it's a very affordable solution!

Duo County recently celebrated Nathan Skaggs' service and retirement. Thanks for 27 years of service and enjoy your retirement, Nathan!
