Editor’s Note: This contribution comes from Chris who sent in this piece from The New York Times. And brings up a great story to follow for our area.
Although it speaks of rural electric coops and most of the Luther area is served by OG&E there are some areas within the Luther city limits which are on coop power and could benefit from this approach. And who knows – maybe we could put a bee in OG&E’s bonnet? Access to modern hi-speed internet would have a profound impact on any rural area’s future – just as rural electrification did here in the 30’s through the fifties.
Thank you Chris. We’ll look into it with OG&E, and also CREC who serves the “greater” Luther area. We’ll also check-in with our local internet providers.
