Illinois Electric Cooperative is bringing high speed
21st century fiber service to Calhoun County!
We want Calhoun to have a fast, reliable connection.
Illinois Electric Cooperative has been working since 2013 to bring a fiber optic network to the county. It's not been easy, but we haven't given up. We are bringing fiber internet to the schools first. After this, we will begin a countywide build-out of a fiber network.
Since 1936, the co-op has been on a mission to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. Fiber optics do just that. It drastically improves the quality of life for those in the community.
